DreamFactory, Verizon Team on Free Cloud Dev Portal
DreamFactory announced the launch of a free enterprise application development portal for Verizon Cloud.Verizon and DreamFactory announced a new developer portal in the cloud. The new development partnership aims to make it easier for enterprise application developers to prototype, test, deploy and scale applications on the Verizon Cloud. The partnership combines DreamFactory’s REST API platform with Verizon's secure cloud services to deliver a turnkey cloud-first development environment for mobile, Web, and Internet of Things (IoT) developers. "The DreamFactory-Verizon Partner Solutions portal addresses a key developer need: a frictionless way to instantly access RESTful API services hosted on IaaS, plus an easy progression of those new dev/test workloads to production—'all in a secure, scalable, cloud-hosted environment,” said Eric Rubin, co-founder of DreamFactory, in a blog post. DreamFactory markets a REST API platform that detects and connects to a variety of cloud back end data sources and services, and then automatically creates an API and documentation. Now DreamFactory and Verizon have collaborated to create a "cloud first" development portal for enterprise mobile, Web, and IoT workloads. The new co-branded portal is being launched as a natural extension to Verizon Cloud Spaces.
"As developers increasingly adopt cloud-first strategies, we are making it easier for them to rapidly access data and integrate APIs without having to migrate backend resources prior to development, testing, and production," said Quintin Lew, senior vice president of marketing at Verizon Partner Solutions, in a statement. "The DreamFactory-Verizon Partner Solutions portal will accelerate the development of many enterprise applications that would otherwise require significant integration development resources.”
