UShareSoft Appliance Factory


We have negotiated a special open source community agreement with UShareSoft who offers a SaaS Appliance Factory to make your open source project and your software available as a high quality software appliance. UShareSoft's UForge allows to package and maintain your software into a self-contained software image including operating system and middleware and applications of your choice. The package can be easily installed in customer environments on a bare-metal machine, a virtual infrastructure or even as a Software as a Service (SaaS) package that can be published to a cloud.

UShareSoft provides a Free "Plus" account to open source project Leaders. See more details or simply click here to ask now for the creation of your Free UForge Open Source Community account.
