ISV accounts for both hosted and Private Cloud support white labeling functionality and give you the ability to provision and manage customer tenants directly. A customer tenant is a virtual space that securely hosts applications and data and provides a working environment for a set of users. This allows you to run your own Software as a Service (SaaS) business and take advantage of the Rollbase platform for rapid development and secure deployment of applications that meet critical business needs.
For ISV pricing or to purchase, contact Progress. Rollbase provides the following benefits to all ISV customers:
ISV account: Hosted Rollbase standard customers receive a special account that provides the ability to create and manage customer tenants. This eliminates dependencies on Progress for deployment and maintenance. Rollbase Private Cloud customers can set up any number of ISV Accounts for their own customers.
Custom login and password retrieval pages: ISVs with dedicated websites for their companies and products can host their own branded pages for log in and forgotten passwords, making the use of Rollbase transparent to end users. Any number of custom login pages can be created and hosted externally allowing you to have different login mechanisms for each application, dedicated login pages for key customers, or a central login for all of your customers.
Custom Marketplace: You can set up a custom branded, private Marketplace or Application Directory allowing your customers and prospects to view and install applications directly from their website.
Customizable platform name: It is simple to replace Rollbase with your own product, platform or company name.
Customizable URLs: All default external links within the platform that point to company-hosted pages, such as terms of service, privacy statement, etc, can be redirected to your pages. Hosted cloud ISV customers will still see www.rollbase.com in the browser address bar. Private Cloud customers will see www.yourdomain.com.
Note: Starting with Rollbase 4.0, in hosted Rollbase, Marketplace replaces the Application Directory. However, for Rollbase Private Cloud users who have moved from earlier versions of Rollbase to Rollbase 4.0, Marketplace is provided as an alternative to the Application Directory. Administrators of the master tenant can choose Marketplace or Application Directory to publish and distribute their applications.
The topics in this section describe how to work with hosted Rollbase or Rollbase Private Cloud as an ISV.
