New Functionality Also Added to OpenLogic Exchange Enterprise Edition

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - OpenLogic, Inc., a provider of enterprise open source software solutions encompassing hundreds of open source packages, today announced that the number of certified open source packages available in the OpenLogic Certified Library surpassed 400. In addition, OpenLogic broadened functionality of OpenLogic Exchange (OLEX) Enterprise Edition, the industry's first Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for comprehensive sourcing and governance of open source in the enterprise.

OpenLogic Expands Certified Library, Adds Open Source Comparison Matrix

OpenLogic's Certified Library is a collection of certified and indemnified open source packages that are supported by OpenLogic, as well as through the OpenLogic Expert Community. The OpenLogic Certified Library is freely available through the OpenLogic Exchange (OLEX) at olex.openlogic.com.

--  Certified Library Grows to 400+ Open Source Packages -- The OpenLogic
    Certified Library now includes more than 400 open source packages and more
    than 1,800 distributions that represent unique platforms and versions.
    Each open source package in the Certified Library has passed OpenLogic's
    rigorous 42-point certification process.  Projects added in 2008 include
    Mule, Nant, Apache Tuscany, Tea Trove, WebWork and DotNet Nuke.
    
--  Open Source Comparison Matrix -- OpenLogic has expanded their open
    source knowledgebase by launching an Open Source Comparison Matrix that
    provides side-by-side comparisons of open source packages within a
    particular category.  Comparisons help developers determine when an open
    source package is appropriate and choose the software that best meets their
    needs.  OpenLogic solicited data from the open source community to help
    create the Comparison Matrix, which initially covers three categories:
    Application Servers, Relational Databases and Web Application Frameworks.
    The Comparison Matrix is now available at OLEX.

    packages or custom builds that are specific to their operating environment.
    Private libraries enable companies to apply OLEX Enterprise Edition
    governance features to all the open source that they use.
    
--  Integrated Support Console -- OLEX Enterprise Edition now integrates
    OpenLogic's support offering directly into the SaaS platform.  Customers
    now have instant access to support SLAs and submission of support tickets.
