To extend Java PaaS to private cloud environments running on OpenStack or vSphere
CloudBees, a provider of cloud computing for Java, has unveiled RUN@cloud Private Edition, which extends the company’s Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to private cloud environments running on OpenStack or vSphere.
The new new offering allows CloudBees customers to select deployment in public, private or hybrid cloud and also select the underlying infrastructure – Amazon, OpenStack or vSphere, said the company.
The new RUN@cloud Private Edition features include: scale DUO – down, up and out, optimally manages virtual machines; multi-tenant: lets multiple customers share a service — securely; metering and billing; management; and IaaS-agnostic – portable, and supports multiple cloud infrastructure services to avoid lock-in.
The company is also joining the OpenStack community and will work with the OpenStack ecosystem to bring an open, enterprise-grade PaaS to OpenStack users that frees them from vendor lock-in and costly server virtualisation.
The new RUN@cloud Private Edition will enable enterprise companies building private clouds on OpenStack or vSphere to take advantage of CloudBees’ deployment services behind their own firewalls, said the company.
CloudBees founder and CEO Sacha Labourey said the company continues to lead on innovation, and today they have broadened the choices for their customers in deployment and in underlying infrastructure.
"Even more, we’ve shown that we can execute rapidly, and our vision remains committed to providing the easiest to use, most flexible and most cost-effective PaaS on the market covering the complete development to production lifecycle for Java applications," Labourey added.
The company said that the public cloud providers built on OpenStack or vSphere can support RUN@cloud services. CloudBees is currently onboarding beta customers, with planned general availability in second half of 2011.
