@builddoctor I still have yet to see anything from rpath actually showing anything rpath does or sells. They drown everyone in marketing.less than a minute ago via web

The PR lady emailed:

rPath is a next-generation data center automation solution that provides a unique approach to automating the construction, deployment and maintenance of software systems across physical, virtual and cloud-based environments. For enterprise IT organizations, rPath can:

  • Accelerate IT — reducing deployment cycles from weeks to minutes
  • Reduce cost — improving system-to-admin ratio by 6-10X
  • Mitigate risk — for auditable and compliant software systems

rPath offers a model-driven and version controlled approach to automating software system deployment and maintenance. This provides deep transparency and control for managing the lifecycle of deployed software systems.
rPath is based on a version-controlled repository that acts as a definitive software library for controlled reuse of application, OS, middleware and other system artifacts across development, test and production organizations.
From this repository, rPath automates four key functions:

  • Automated generation of images for rapid deployment to physical, virtual or cloud targets
  • Automated updates and rollbacks
  • Compliance reporting and remediation
  • Controlled lifecycle promotion

So there you go. Seems very comprehensive.

Continuous Integration Podcast

My old (and new – we’re back on a project together) colleague Mike Hogan is making a series of podcasts. The Continuous Integration episode is a good introductory resource. Having a proper Irish Brogue doesn’t hurt at all, either.
