Covalent Technologies(TM) Announces Expanded Support for Apache Geronimo Application Server

Leading Supplier of Complete Enterprise Open Source Solutions in Strategic Partnership With Chariot Solutions; Introduces Suppor

WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/23/06 -- Covalent Technologies(TM), the most trusted source for complete enterprise open source solutions, today announced expanded support offerings for the Apache Geronimo Application Server, the J2EE 1.4-compliant pure open source application server project of the Apache Software Foundation.

Extending its position as a leading supplier of support for Apache Geronimo, Covalent announced a strategic partnership with Chariot Solutions (www.chariotsolutions.com). Based in Fort Washington, PA, Chariot is a consulting firm that specializes in the design, development and implementation of software solutions using Java and open source technology. Led by CTO and Apache Geronimo Committer Aaron Mulder, Chariot has a depth of Java application architecture expertise, specifically related to the creation and implementation of J2EE frameworks.

Also, as part of the announcement, Covalent is introducing support for the industry's first real-time monitoring solution for Apache Geronimo from Hyperic (www.hyperic.net), a leading provider of application management frameworks for IT operations based on open source technology.

Similar to its offerings for the Apache HTTP Web Server and Apache Tomcat Application Server, Covalent will now offer to its Apache Geronimo enterprise customers as an add-on support plan offering Hyperic HQ 2.6, the only downloadable management solution designed specifically for mission-critical open source applications. Hyperic HQ is the management platform of choice for customers ranging from Fortune 500 to mid-size enterprises requiring consolidated management and troubleshooting of custom applications. Hyperic HQ 2.6 offers a rich feature-set for managing open applications. The solution is easy-to-install and downloadable, up and running in less than one hour and provides first-class support for major open source platforms including Apache HTTP and Apache Tomcat, Apache Geronimo, JBoss, Linux, MySQL and PostgreSQL -- in addition to complete support for commercial J2EE solutions and the .NET platform.

"We are seeing accelerated adoption of open source technologies by our enterprise customers, including J2EE containers, which frequently are more appropriate due to their cost effectiveness versus closed-source offerings from proprietary vendors," says Mark Brewer, chief executive officer of Covalent Technologies. "It is through partnerships with companies like Chariot and Hyperic that Covalent is able to deliver on the promise of delivering full commercial support to the enterprise for Apache Geronimo."

"Chariot Solutions is excited to partner with Covalent Technologies because of their success in providing commercial support to enterprise customers for Apache Geronimo," says Michael J. Rappaport, CEO of Chariot Solutions. "We at Chariot feel that this partnership is just another way to showcase our leadership position within the Apache Geronimo community."

"Hyperic is committed to providing customers with complete management solutions for their entire open source infrastructure," says Javier A. Soltero, CEO of Hyperic. "By providing support for Geronimo, we enable enterprise customers to choose their open source middleware with the confidence that it can be deployed reliably into managed production environments."

Support and Availability

Hyperic HQ is available for current Covalent Apache HTTP, Apache Tomcat and Apache Geronimo customers as an add-on support plan offering. Full commercial development and production-level technical support and professional services for Apache Geronimo are also available for current and new Covalent customers.
