Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 3, 2011
Standing Cloud, Inc. (http://www.standingcloud.com) is pleased to announce the addition of several cloud providers to its platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering.
Users of Standing Cloud’s application management service now have the option of hosting applications on OpSource, Atlantic.Net, and Peak Colo, in addition to previously supported services from Amazon, Rackspace, SoftLayer, Tagadab, SliceHost, GoGrid and Linode. Additional SoftLayer data centers in Washington, D.C. and Seattle are also now available, in addition to the previously supported Dallas data center.
"With the recent Amazon Web Services outage, awareness of alternative infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers has increased," said David J. Jilk, CEO of Standing Cloud. "Standing Cloud is on the forefront of providing application deployment, development, and management capabilities that not only support many cloud services, but can move applications from one service to another in very short order."
Customers of Standing Cloud enjoy its signature application management service, which features:
- easy installation and management of packaged applications and development stacks
- 24x7 monitoring
- frequent, regular and accessible backups
- auto-recovery (to another server or another cloud entirely in the case of downtime)
- version management
- scaling as application usage grows
Standing Cloud is the only platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that enables cloud users to deploy, manage, customize and/or develop applications on a variety of cloud services and with several programming languages. The service supports PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, and Python, as well as 80+ complete open source applications that can be deployed by end users with a few clicks. Target customers include business users who want an easy way to automatically deploy and manage SaaS; developers who customize existing open source applications or develop their own from scratch; and IT professionals in search of a time-saving way to deploy applications and development environments for teams within their organization.
