Apprenda 4.0 Platform as a Service (PaaS) Sets New Model for Enterprise Cloud Computing and Extends Datacenter to Windows Azure
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Apprenda, a private platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for developing,
delivering and managing next-generation cloud applications, today
launched version 4.0 of its flagship platform.
Apprenda 4.0 will set the model for how to modernize existing
mission-critical enterprise applications and build new cloud architected
applications and services, extending its leadership in best-of-breed
support for Windows-based cloud environments.
Enterprises Extend Datacenter to Windows Azure
Apprenda connects Windows Server 2012 environments with cloud-based
Windows Azure resources, achieving a hybrid cloud PaaS approach for
enterprises. Windows Azure users can use Apprenda to develop, deploy and
manage cloud applications without conflict with private PaaS.
"Windows Azure is a global, scalable cloud platform that gives
developers flexibility to target public, private, and hybrid cloud
environments," said Bill Hilf, General Manager, Windows Azure Marketing.
"Apprenda helps enterprises utilize Windows Azure's strengths so that
applications can take advantage of public and private PaaS scenarios."
Single-Click Hybrid Cloud
Apprenda enterprises want hybrid cloud architectures. In 4.0, IT can
apply resource policies to infrastruture and applications in seconds,
moving them with a simple single-click feature across the boundaries
from private to public cloud or can set policies for doing so
automatically based on business needs and parameters.
"Hybrid cloud is helping traditional enterprises become more comfortable
with Net-based application development," said James Governor, RedMonk
founding analyst. "Organizations want common tooling for deployment,
monitoring, security and management across public and private cloud;
Apprenda is targeting this deployment flexibility directly with its 4.0
Enterprises Easily Embrace Mobile, Other App Patterns
As enterprises extend their application portfolios to embrace mobile,
multi-tenant and other cloud application types, Apprenda extends its
market-leading developer cloud platform for deployment and management
with technology that helps keep the focus on product innovation. As a
best-of-breed platform for Windows Server and .NET, Apprenda 4.0 adds
support for all Windows and Visual Studio integration and extends
support for all of Microsoft's (News - Alert) latest releases, including .NET 4.5, SQL
Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012.
Developers increase productivity in building next generation cloud
architected applications and modernizing existing application portfolio
with minimal adjustment to code.
Apprenda 4.0 has best-in-class operation advancements in third-party
authorization and authentication systems designed to improve agility in
application deployment and deployment policies to implement governance,
risk management and compliance (GRC). With new System Center 2012
integration, Apprenda can run across multiple datacenters
(private/public/hosted) and yet be managed centrally.
Apprenda is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that transforms how
enterprises can develop, deliver and manage next generation applications
in a public, private or hybrid cloud environment. Apprenda's platform
makes writing and managing enterprise cloud applications easy and
efficient, without compromise. The Apprenda PaaS equips enterprises with
the runtime, APIs and tools that allow them to easily build, deploy and
manage cloud applications using today's skillsets and investments. By
decoupling applications from infrastructure and developers from IT,
Apprenda empowers organizations to achieve significant cost savings and
massive productivity improvements that result in better business.
