InstantObjects will launch its flagship product February 1. The product's several components form a layer between a firm's Web server and databases. They are:
The product also comes with a set of components for site features like registration, search, banner-ad support, and agenting.
InstantObjects is betting that Web developers will opt to buy rather than build these various components.
"The hard part is getting all these components to work in synch," said InstantObjects' chief executive Alan Mutter. "The only way to get something like what we're offering is to build it yourself."
InstantObjects is compatible with the Unix, Windows NT, and Macintosh operating systems. Prices begin at $35,000 per processor.
Founded in 1994 and headquartered in San Francisco, InstantObjects is funded by Toronto Star; JAFCO America; Canaan Partners; Intel; Softbank; Weiss, Peck and Greeer; and Charter Ventures. The company formerly was known as Electric Classifieds.
