Newest version of industry’s leading collaboration platform delivers up to 12x performance improvement for ‘data-heavy’ sites
SAN DIEGO, April 26, 2010 — MindTouch, the industry’s leading open source alternative to Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the availability of the newest version of the MindTouch Collaboration Platform, the best solution for how teams and companies collaborate today. This newest release enables companies that service large numbers of online users to confidently unleash the power of rich media, data transfer and rapid application development to their collaboration experience.
As customers have been successful in developing their own micro-apps on top of the MindTouch platform, this performance boost not only improves the speed of native applications, but integrates a new level of speed in customer and partner applications.
“MindTouch’s new feature set will be a welcome addition to maintaining our online presence”, said Miguel de Icaza, Vice President, Developer Platform at Novell. “We’re very pleased with MindTouch as a platform for all of our new content sites, particularly as we continue to see exponential data increases.”
“Performance is critical to the success of our customers, many of whom service millions of users each day,” said Aaron Fulkerson, CEO, MindTouch. “As these sites continue to grow in size and complexity, this performance boost will enable them to breathe new life into legacy apps, and seamlessly manage large amounts of data and applications, while continuing to adopt new users.”
The term “Big Data” is continuing to gain traction within the IT and enterprise 2.0 communities. “Big Data” is a particularly relevant concept to MindTouch customers managing volumes upon volumes of digital media files and/or millions of site visitors, as well as those whose applications rapidly change to meet market needs.
MindTouch has leveraged its extensible and robust WOA/REST architecture to seamlessly employ the new performance boost through an efficient code library edition, obviating the need for customers to have to re-install a new product. The release is being made available as a simple upgrade to existing and new commercial customers of the MindTouch platform.
