you introduce the team ?
UShareSoft has been created by 3 former Sun employees. After a one-year incubation period in the GRAIN organization, UShareSoft was officially created in August 2008. That same year, the technology developed inhouse received an award by the 10th national contest for the support of innovative start-ups organized by the French ministry of research and universities (OSEO).
What is UShareSoft?
UShareSoft delivers a software appliance factory, formally named UForge and a set of enterprise-class tools allowing users to create high quality business-ready software images.

We enable users to visually in a few simple clicks, create, assemble, customize and maintain high quality IT pre-configured software stacks, including all you need to automatically generate ready-to-run software images. UShareSoft is helping users to make their IT software solutions very simple, consistent and predictable to install and deploy in the field. This factory helps reduce costs and accelerate the time to market for software.
Where are you in terms of development?
UShareSoft is currently in a development and public launch phase. Muliplying strategic partnerships and developing a large community of users are key objectives for the coming months. Headquarters are located in France, with an R&D Center in Argentina (Buenos Aires) and offices in the USA (San Fransisco).
Why join the Sun Startup Essential program?
UShareSoft wanted to join the program to leverage Sun's network and participate in co-marketing initiatives.
What are your next steps?
