TioLive, the Open Source Platform as a Service (PaaS) and ERP/CRM Software as a Service (SaaS), announced the release of TioLive Grid. With TioLive Grid, everyone can now run on his own servers a Private Cloud or a Community Cloud at no license cost.

Dover (USA), Paris (France) - April, 20th 2010 - 12:00 UTC - TioLive LLC, the company behind the TioLive ERP/CRM platform has just released TioLive Grid. TioLive Grid is the first open source solution which enables any user to deliver and manage ERP/CRM instances on its own Private Cloud. While more and more users are subscribing to TioLive, TioLive Grid aims at giving more freedom to customers and offers total control over sensitive business data. TioLive Grid is the first step towards Distributed Cloud Computing, a new approach to Cloud Computing which will eventually replace over the next years legacy Centralized Cloud Computing solutions controlled by proprietary SaaS vendors.

Jean-Paul Smets, TioLive CEO says: "TioLive Grid can be used by registered TioLive users who want to deliver and control TioLive ERP/CRM/KM on their own server. Whenever a user installs TioLive Grid at home, at his or her company or elsewhere, he or she can provide to anybody, including himself or herself, an ERP/CRM/KM platform which is Free, Open Source and online."

Jacques Honoré, TioLive Community Manager adds: "TioLive Grid is one more step towards Complete Freedom and Total Control by users over their private data. All customers' data is kept on his own server. All server software is open source. There is no lock-in at all for TioLive users."

Lukasz Kazimierz Nowak, TioLive Grid Project Manager concludes: "TioLive Grid is the easiest solution for governments and corporations to create a Private Cloud or a Community Cloud. We have been focusing on automating as many processes as we could. This leads to a solution which can be used by anyone without being a developer or a system administrator. TioLive Grid will soon be available for all GNU/Linux distributions: Mandriva, Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat, SuSE, etc. thanks to buildout based distribution independent packaging technology."
