OpenLogic, a provider of enterprise open-source solutions for the data center and the cloud, announced that it has added support for high-volume cloud applications and Websites to its CloudSwing platform as a service (PaaS) solution.

New CloudSwing capabilities include deploying a pool of servers, load balancing across servers, the ability to scale the application tier and database tier independently, application-level management and monitoring across servers and support for hosted databases including Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).

€œThe world€™s most flexible and open PaaS solution, CloudSwing now includes a broad set of capabilities that make it easy to deploy high-volume applications without being locked in to any cloud provider or any database provider,€ said Rod Cope, OpenLogic CTO and founder, in a statement. €œCloudSwing support for Amazon RDS and other hosted MySQL services will allow users to deploy MySQL-based cloud applications in a matter of minutes and outsource database administration to their provider of choice.€

In addition, CloudSwing is customizable and enables application developers to quickly deploy and operate cloud platform stacks using any open-source or proprietary components on the cloud of their choice, OpenLogic officials said.

With CloudSwing, companies can create scalable cloud applications by deploying a pool of Web servers or application servers. CloudSwing also supports application-level monitoring and management across all of the servers. Moreover, CloudSwing maintains native load balancing on multiple clouds, which enables users to preserve the freedom to run the application on any cloud provider at any time. For instance, CloudSwing leverages the native load-balancing capabilities of both Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.

In addition to support for Amazon RDS, CloudSwing also supports hosted MySQL databases. It also includes two new LAMP stacks out-of-the-box: one that uses Amazon RDS for the data store and another that works with hosted or remote MySQL instances. These new stacks enable CloudSwing users to use Amazon RDS and other hosted MySQL services in their own customized technology stacks.
