We chose OpSource because we needed a proven SaaS-focused delivery provider that could go beyond just managing our hardware and operating systems to become a core part of our Web operations team

    Business users, IT professionals and Web developers can use Rollbase to design, develop and deploy custom Web-based applications using highly intuitive and interactive tools within a standard Web browser. By providing an easy to learn and flexible toolset in a rich AJAX-based user experience, Rollbase makes rapid Web-based application development possible for people who may not have the time, resources or expertise to create on-demand applications using traditional software development methods.

"We chose OpSource because we needed a proven SaaS-focused delivery provider that could go beyond just managing our hardware and operating systems to become a core part of our Web operations team," said Matt Robinson, co-founder and CEO of Rollbase. "We looked at using a combination of utility computing services and other hosting providers but found that no combination of the two could match the level of service and proactive support we needed. With the OpSource OnDemand platform we have been able to create and deploy our production infrastructure for our state of the art PaaS in just a few months."

Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource, said: "In the next 20 years, all applications will be Web applications, not just because they are more affordable, easier to use or better platforms - although they are all three - but because they are how the next generation of users and programmers are used to working. We are proud of our affiliation with Rollbase, which is leading the charge in developing Web-based business applications."
