Apprenda 5.0 Powers Enterprise Transition to Hybrid Cloud

Industry-Leading Enterprise PaaS Supports .NET and Java

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Apprenda, the leader in enterprise Platform as-a-Service (PaaS), today announced Apprenda 5.0, the latest version of the company's innovative enterprise PaaS solution. The release unveils ambitious new features, cementing Apprenda as the most comprehensive enterprise PaaS offering in the market. In addition to the deepest support for both .NET and Java applications, the release features a streamlined developer portal and enterprise policy enhancements including dynamic scaling, setting up enterprises for a smooth transition to running mission-critical applications in a hybrid cloud environment.   

Hybrid cloud deployments are on the rise, and Gartner predicts that nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by the end of 2017. As Gartner analyst Thomas Bittman has written, "The technology you choose matters. While pilot projects will tend to start small, with limited functionality, choose a technology foundation that offers room for expansion — both in terms of functionality richness, and in terms of hybrid cloud interoperability for the future."

Apprenda 5.0 enables businesses to seamlessly manage resources from within an enterprise's datacenter as well as from public cloud providers, easing the transition to a fully-optimized hybrid PaaS. The company offers the industry's most sophisticated, enterprise-grade PaaS with full support for both .NET and Java, which accounts for 80 percent of enterprise workloads. Apprenda 5.0 delivers one platform and one experience for enterprise developers across both .NET and Java applications, resulting in a more fluid and comprehensive experience. Enterprise customers including AmerisourceBergen, JPMorgan Chase and McKesson rely on Apprenda's proven unified platform to run mission-critical applications and eliminate friction between developers and IT operations teams.

"No other private PaaS we considered delivers the depth of Java and .NET capabilities in a single technology as Apprenda does," said Matias Klein, VP, Intelligence Hub, for San Francisco based McKesson. "We licensed the technology because it perfectly fit our needs as a modern enterprise."

"We've been working hand-in-hand with our customers in production to develop the most sophisticated, enterprise-grade PaaS on the market," said Rakesh Malholtra, VP, product, Apprenda. "Our ultimate goal is to make developing applications simpler for everyone involved: developers, IT ops and production teams. Apprenda 5.0 signifies our most robust PaaS with full support for .NET and Java, and armed with this solution, customers will be able to realize new streams of revenue and prepare for private, public and hybrid cloud environments."

With this release, Apprenda has overhauled its user experience, offering new dynamic visualizations in a highly intuitive management portal. Apprenda 5.0 meets the needs of modern enterprises with a focus on policy enhancements and includes the industry's first API for controlling dynamic scaling, allowing developers to automatically scale applications in response to user traffic and set constraints to ensure that compliance requirements are met. Apprenda recognized the tremendous need for this popular public cloud feature in the enterprise and created a simple interface for developers to achieve the benefits of dynamic scaling with maximum control. 

 Apprenda 5.0 features include:

  • Bootstrapping policies: With enhanced bootstrapping policies, customers have the ability to dynamically load libraries or perform additional operations prior to component deployment based on policies.
  • Native Oracle DB Support: Apprenda 5.0 supports Oracle as a first class database on the platform, including support for data level multi-tenancy.
  • Enhanced Developer Logging: Apprenda 5.0 features a more sophisticated and simplified developer experience for troubleshooting applications including log export, better contextual search and threading.
  • Archive Filtering: With this feature, developers have the ability to create regular expression match and replace rules as part of their archive upload.
  • Enhanced Tenant Membership: This feature enables a user to belong to multiple tenants while allowing the platform to disambiguate authorization automatically.

Availability
Apprenda 5.0 is now generally available. For more information, please go to: http://apprenda.com.
