LA JOLLA, CA — December 01, 2004 – Caucho® Technology, Inc. announced today that Silver Egg Technology. is standardizing on Caucho® Technology ‘s Resin application server for ‘Aigent ASP’, a product-recommendation service used by some of Japan’s leading Internet retailers. Silver Egg provides artificial intelligence based software and services that enable real-time personalization.
Silver Egg, a web personalization pioneer in Japan, helps merchants boost sales and customer loyalty through the capture, analysis, and application of customer knowledge. Silver Egg’s Aigent ASP service enables merchants to deploy personalized cross-selling on their web sites with little more integration than would be necessary to carry a banner advertisement. In offering Aigent as an easily integrated service, and by making it available to qualifying merchants on a performance basis, Silver Egg has introduced a practical, new, low-risk means for web merchants to tap into the benefits of one-to-one selling.
Caucho® Technology produces Resin, a sophisticated application server used by thousands of corporate, education and government clients. Its simplicity of use allows organizations that have large and demanding sites to focus on delivering their message. Customers using Resin include EBay’s half.com, CNet, Evite, the American Red Cross, the Toronto Stock Exchange and Salesforce.com. Resin delivers fast and stable performance under heavy load situations.
Silver Egg Technology founder and CEO Tom Foley said, “Because we serve live recommendations on some of Japan’s busiest web pages, we are fanatical about availability and reliability. Resin has never let us down. Resin gives us the extreme performance, reliability, and scalability we demand from an application server. Yet, we also require flexibility. That’s why we ardently support open source. With Resin we can be confident that we will always have the flexibility we need.”
Steve Montal, Director of Sales and Strategic Partnerships at Caucho® Technology said, “Our core goal is to provide well-designed, high-performance software that exceeds expectations, even under heavy load situations.” Montal added, “We are delighted that Silver Egg chose Resin to power their ASP service and we look forward to working with them.”
“Silver Egg is quickly becoming the gold standard for product recommendations in Japan. Our success with Japan’s key e-tailers is driving many new opportunities for us” added Foley. “We are mindful that our continued success depends on shrewd design choices and building-out from a solid foundation using the right tools. As engineers, we have deep respect for elegantly designed and sturdily built products. That’s why we chose Resin. Resin puts bloated black-box application servers to shame. With Resin, we can focus on what we do best — building intelligent applications.”
With numerous added features, increased speed and load balancing, Caucho’s Resin software is gaining an industry-wide reputation as a robust solution to the Java application challenges that web developers most often face. Caucho® has also developed the Hessian binary protocol in an effort to produce fast solutions for the rapidly expanding web services arena.
