GlassFish Contribution to Sun Software Infrastructure Growth
By John Clingan-Oracle on Feb 09, 2009
In case you haven't viewed the Q2FY09 quarterly earnings announcement, both MySQL/Infrastructure software and Niagara-based servers are growing strong. Sun doesn't break down the numbers to specific products, but the revenue shows that a growing number of customers are coming to Sun as they build out their web infrastructure.

As for GlassFish, I go home each day with a smile on my face knowing that GlassFish Enterprise Server is contributing to that growth with many new customers. Calendar year 2008 delivered roughly 9 million downloads, and over 300,000 registrations. Registration is optional, so we do our best to earn it. Feel free to use the GeoMap to view the growth. While I am continually and pleasantly surprised by these numbers, I can't help but feel we are only getting warmed up as our virtual team - both Sun and non-Sun - continues to grow.
All this being said, we are not resting on our laurels. Nope. Too much on our plate in order to continue earning new customers. We're listening. What do you like about GlassFish/Sun/community? How can we improve GlassFish/Sun/community? Feel free to contact me directly, or use the GlassFish user's email alias to provide feedback. Other routes to feedback include the The Aquarium blog, FishCAT (GlassFish Quality community), GlassFish.TV, Twitter, and the plethora of GlassFish community bloggers (too many to list).
