EPICOR Software has announced its Vantage and Vista manufacturing solutions now offer support for Linux operating systems.
Vista and Vantage are complete end-to-end manufacturing solutions that address the core business needs of small and mid-sized make-to-order (MTO) and mixed-mode manufacturers.
Epicor has also committed to Linux support for its upcoming Vantage 6.1 release and its next generation manufacturing solution code-named Sonoma, announced earlier this year.
Designed to fit the size and scope of manufacturers from the lower to upper midmarket, this next generation solution will enable Epicor's manufacturing customers to adopt Web services technology at their own pace while protecting their technology investment.
Through a partnership announced last year with Progress Software, Epicor is leveraging the Progress OpenEdge platform to deploy a single collection of business logic components that will support a wide variety of technology platforms, including a native Microsoft .NET user interface, enabling manufacturing companies to leverage the power of web services and Microsoft .NET.
The addition of Linux support gives Epicor's manufacturing customers the option to deploy their Vista and Vantage applications on Linux and take advantage of the low cost of ownership, reliability and stability that Linux offers.
