BioShock’s lead programmer talks about the failures behind making the hit game

The cloud-computing and virtualization provider rPath today announced that they have closed a $10M Series C round of investment. The round was lead by existing investors General Catalyst, North Bridge and Wakefield Group. rPath provides applications that allow vendors to provide consistant images and application instances across multiple virtualization platforms and multiple cloud providers.

This means that consistant images can be pre-configures and then rolled out to Amazon, VMWare and multiple other platforms. The rBuilder software can then also maintain and monitor these instances. Such an application is important in medium-to-large scale cloud and virtualization rollouts. In development of applications it is essential that the production environment is perfectly consistant and contains known quantities to assist with troubleshooting and maintenance.

With rBuilder, images can be automatically updated with patches to code and software, configured and backed up. rPath also announced a number of new customers, namely Department of Energy, CERN, 3SP and Avinity Systems amongst others.

    Interesting, but theres more to enterprise software then cloud storage, computing and CDNs. Seems to be 90% of the posts.

    Can we get more on SaaS apps?
