    "We own a system (Apollo) that helps software developers to easily

complex aspects of software deployment, including versioning,
dependency checking, phased rollout, production deployment, and
automated validation testing. Our system is comprised of several
components ranging from a front-end UI with command-line tools to a
backend web service suite and workflow engine, written primarily in
Java, C++, and Perl/Mason. We have a ton of exciting work ahead of us
to build a continuous deployment workflow as well as to make it simple

*Service Frameworks
   "Our projects has involved writing a high-performance socket
library, new fast protocols, and bytecode generation for faster
reflection. We have also  implemented QoS systems such as a
distributed throttling system, and a new load shedding library to help
services when they are overloaded."
