Illuminata on GlassFish - An SMB Play Opportunity
By pelegri on Nov 03, 2007
Illuminata has published a note on GlassFish: An SMB Play? that emphasizes a possible play in the SMB space. Although we have not emphasized SMB so far, I've started to seen some activity in that area with GFv2 and I expect quite a bit of adoption there with GFv3
One area where I differ with Illuminata's assessment is in the impact of GlassFish on the enterprise. The price differential between the Open Source-based solutions and the traditional offerings is too big for many companies to ignore, and we are already seeing very strong interest, even in the US which has lagged other geographies in Open Source adoption.
