Cloud Technology Partners Announces the General Availability of PaaSLane 2.0, to Accelerate Migration and Optimization of Applications for Cloud

PaaSLane Cuts Time and Expense of Migrating Java and .NET Applications to Public or Private Clouds By Analyzing Application Source Code, Discovering Problems and Recommending Solutions to Ensure and Maintain Cloud Readiness

BOSTON, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

News Summary:

  • Cloud Technology Partners announces the General Availability of PaaSLane, the first and only solution that analyzes Java and .NET application source code for compatibility with private and public cloud platforms
  • PaaSLane supports industry-leading cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, Pivotal CloudFoundry, and Apprenda
  • The free trial of PaaSLane is available at http://www.paaslane.com

Cloud Technology Partners™, the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced the general availability (GA) of PaaSLane™, the first and only software solution that analyzes Java and .NET application source code to uncover problems that could impact cloud readiness, and accelerates the migration of applications to public or private clouds.  PaaSLane assesses existing Java and .NET apps quickly; finding coding errors, hardcoded dependencies, security issues, scalability problems, and other factors, which could quickly derail an application migration project.  By reducing the need for manual code reviews, which are labor intensive and time consuming, PaaSLane can shorten migration times by months and eliminate hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost.

PaaSLane enables its users to:

  • Rapidly assess application source code to determine cloud readiness, identifying quick wins that can be migrated immediately and prioritizing scarce resources
  • Accelerate cloud migrations and the development of cloud-native software by integrating into the software development lifecycle and tracking progress towards cloud readiness
  • Continuously optimize applications for evolving cloud platforms by checking every build for cloud readiness and delivering real-time intelligence on changes in major cloud platforms

PaaSLane includes complete support for Java and C# .NET, and assesses cloud readiness for all major private and public cloud platforms.  Building on support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced last year (http://www.cloudtp.com/?announcements=cloud-technology-partners-announces-paaslane-for-aws), PaaSLane 2.0 includes support for other leading cloud platforms including Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, Pivotal CloudFoundry, and Apprenda.  Additional new features with this GA release include: a redesigned reporting interface, live drill-down into alert detail, interactive charting, and new options for delivering both management-level and detail reports in PDF and Excel formats.

The use of cloud for enterprise workloads is skyrocketing, driving the need for solutions that reduce the risk and cost of migrating applications to the cloud, and that is where PaaSLane shines," said Ben Grubin, Director of Product Management at Cloud Technology Partners. "By using PaaSLane to find and fix problems in advance, companies can ensure migrations are successful."

PaaSLane is also gaining traction with systems integrators, who are challenged to deliver cloud-ready applications in an environment where cloud platforms are changing on a daily basis. 

"We leverage PaaSLane to accelerate our time to market for cloud-ready applications," said Deborah Mounts, Software Engineering Director at Foliage, a leading provider of product consulting and development services.  "PaaSLane has proven to be a valuable, time-saving addition to our toolset during consulting engagements.  We look forward to realizing similar productivity gains in our application development and migration processes, where PaaSLane can help us optimize our applications for constantly evolving cloud environments."

Recent IDC cloud research shows that spending on public IT cloud services is expected to be more than $107 billion in 2017, and growing at five times that of the industry overall, according to the IDC Worldwide and Regional Public IT Cloud Services 2013-2017 Forecast (Doc #242464, August 2013).

"For IDC, a prevailing question we are now hearing from clients is not whether to move applications to the public cloud, but what should be moved first," said Robert Mahowald, Program Vice President, SaaS and Cloud Services at IDC.  "The answer of course is not simple.  Migrating from existing on-premise platforms to a cloud-based platform has to be carefully planned to avoid additional complexity and risk, but it often can provide value to make it well worth the effort."  He continued, "Solutions like PaaSLane help automate the process and eliminate guesswork. They can also provide IT leaders with an objective measure of cloud "readiness" across application portfolios, and give the development team a roadmap to start fixing issues immediately."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
