Operating system expertise is combined with a cross-hypervisor approach to offer a “service factory” for the visual assembly of software stacks. RPath has added a drag-and-drop interface to its software stack building system, now called rPathX6, to make it easier to build a virtual appliance or other software stack and track each of its configurations. In the past, rPath has been a specialist tool supplier, giving early cloud users, among other things, a system with which they could construct a workload as a set of virtual files that could be sent straight to Amazon’s EC2 cloud. rPathX6 is capable of producing streamlined workloads for clouds like those offered at Bluelock.
