its CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform v1.0, a platform that enables cloud
service providers to build a Java platform as a service in their data centers.
With the cloud space continuing to
consolidate and things heating up in the PaaS market, CumuLogic says its
platform transforms virtualized environments and infrastructure as a service
(IaaS) clouds, such as Citrix CloudStack, OpenStack and VMware vSphere, to
PaaS, simplifying the development, deployment and runtime management of mobile,
Web and enterprise applications in private and hybrid clouds.
We are very pleased with the ease
of integration that weve seen with the CumuLogic product, said Matthew
Porter, CEO and co-founder of Contegix, in a statement. Working with CumuLogic
provides for a natural extension of our MiraCloud platform and delivers on our
commitment to deliver robust technology in a very flexible way.
As one of the first CloudStack partners
to be certified Citrix-Ready, CumuLogic remains an important ecosystem partner
for us, said Peder Ulander, vice president of product marketing in the Cloud
Platform Group at Citrix Systems, in a statement. We believe that platform as
a service is a key element to driving greater cloud ROI for our customers, and
were very pleased to see that market maturing even further with this product
release from CumuLogic.
CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform
v1.0 improves developer productivity, lowers the cost of managing applications
on clouds, enables DevOps collaboration, and streamlines the migration of
applications to cloudspublic or private. CumuLogics software enables
enterprises, cloud providers and ISVs to develop and deploy Java applications
in public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
We are extremely excited about the
release of CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform 1.0, the most robust,
vendor-independent platform on the market today, said Mike Soby, president of
CumuLogic, in a statement. Were looking forward to continuing the advancement
of the platform and delivering real business results for our customers and
CumuLogic PaaS focuses on three key
functional areas: application development, application migration and
application management. Developers can create a new cloud-based application
using their preferred IDE; no proprietary software development kit (SDK) is
required. With CumuLogic PaaS, existing Java applications can be migrated from
physical or virtual environments with minimal-to-zero code rewrite. And with
respect to management, the solutions application management function includes
all the enterprise-ready features out-of-the-box, such as high availability and
self-healing, monitoring and real-time application-level usage metering.
We are excited to be working with
CumuLogic, said Giles Sirett, managing consultant and founder of ShapeBlue, a
cloud-focused consultancy that focuses on the CloudStack open-source cloud
computing solution, in a statement. After evaluating several PaaS offerings,
we found that the CumuLogic platform provided the most valuable extension for
our CloudStack clients, and were looking forward to building deep practice
competency around the integrated solution.
In April, Citrix announced that its
companys popular CloudStack solution
would become the first cloud
platform in the industry to be submitted to the Apache Software Foundation
Citrix said the move brought Apache more than 30,000 community members,
thousands of certified apps, and hundreds of production clouds, collectively
generating more than $1 billion in cloud revenue from some of the biggest
brands in the industry.
To capitalize on the anticipated
market momentum, in May Citrix announced Citrix CloudPlatform, the first
commercially supported cloud orchestration system based on Apache CloudStack
. Citrix said the release would
enable customers to evolve virtualized data center resources to automated,
elastic and self-service IT delivery models.
