Erlang Programming Language Boosted By Swarm

Erlang Solutions has announced the introduction of its new continuous integration environment, Moebius. The new portfolio of custom-built Erlang/OTP (Open Telecom Platform) packages is designed to bring the general-purpose programming language and runtime environment to a wider audience of Erlang users.

Open source at its core, Erlang has built-in support for concurrency, distribution, and fault tolerance and is used in several large telecommunication systems from Ericsson. Erlang Solutions is also providing fully customized, commercial grade support with its new offering, which will be rolled-out over the next 12 months.

Moebius is essentially a collaborative development environment that supports the full span of platforms, from embedded systems to super computers. Erlang Solutions says its commercial support for Erlang/OTP gives users the opportunity to provide their customers with a service backed by a service level agreement (SLA).

The support will be tailored for each user's requirements, from lone developers to Fortune 500 companies, giving them access to specialist consultancy services. Users will also have access to SLA guidelines, online sign-up and ticket reporting, as well as immediate access to patches as they become available.

"We are entering an exciting era for Erlang, and Erlang Solutions is proud to be providing a total environment to the entire development ecosystem," said Marcus Taylor, commercial director, Erlang Solutions Ltd. "Our vision is to bring Erlang to the fore as the programming language of choice by making it as accessible and as compelling as possible through our offering."
