Parallels Converts Spreed Into SaaS App

| January 30, 2008 | 0 Comments

Parallels permitted Struktur to convert its downloadable conferencing solution, spreed, into a service application, Web hosting software provider Parallels announced on Wednesday.

With the ability to securely operate on any server, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers use the application packaging standard to deliver the spreed conferencing software as a virtual appliance. Up to that time, a spreed user had to download, install and then configure the software to run on their computer, says the company.

Originally available in August 2006, the solution was transformed to a virtual appliance in September 2007 and at present it is used by more than 100,000 users to talk, share and view files including video, in addition to typing chat messages.

Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels stated “Parallels Virtuozzo virtualization technology combined with our automation software provides the ideal SaaS platform for spreed and other applications that can be delivered as a Web-based service. The spreed solution is another example of how our open platform and the APS standard are driving real business results for our customers.”

Earlier this week, Parallels, previously known as SWsoft, released the latest version of its container-based server virtualization software, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers.
