Progress has announced a new appserver for developing and deploying next generation applications, the Progress Pacific Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge product. This technology brings core systems and applications together with a high-productivity runtime environment, enabling enterprise developers to bridge the gap between yesterday's mission-critical applications and the technology needs of today's organizations.

The Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge product provides an enterprise-class web/application server that simplifies the task of creating, deploying and operating business applications. It operates in environments that range from a single instance business application, up to a fully scalable cloud environment hosting multiple applications in a multi-tenant environment. It is designed to address the development and deployment requirements of a hybrid world (on-premise and the cloud).

For enterprises operating in a SaaS business model, the PAS for OpenEdge product provides a scalable and cloud-ready server. The modern application development platform unifies all of the Progress products into a single application server technology giving customers a familiar programming model, increased communications, simple/consistent installations and easier management. The PAS for Openedge product reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) for Progress customers and partners by reducing the efforts of rewriting existing applications/services. 

The Progress OpenEdge integrated development environment builds high-performance multi-platform systems. The OpenEdge environment is compatible with any database, user interface (UI), and operating system. 

OpenEdge offers an integrated, "everything-in-the-box" mobile UI development platform to extend existing, or create new, apps to support mobile users. It provides the opportunity to streamline application processes and accelerate productivity to build business applications faster and improve customer service. Enterprises can improve reliability by monitoring, identifying, preventing and resolving problems before they arise - the essence of disaster recovery business continuity planning. OpenEdge connects applications across multi-application, multi-site, distributed environments, to help guarantee the timely and continuous delivery of business services.
