“Application modernization is the perfect cloud use case, because it solves the biggest problems of on-premise solutions – the provisioning delays and high capital expense of development and testing,” Chris Heidelberger, CEO, Nexaweb.
Burlington, MA (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
Nexaweb Technologies today announced its new Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform, the industry’s only Platform as a Service (PaaS) that leverages the efficiencies of the cloud for development and testing to quickly transform legacy client/server applications into modern, Java-based web applications. The Nexaweb Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform is built on a Standing Cloud platform-as-a-service layer and provides:
- Reliable and elastic on-demand development resources, unlimited testing scalability and pay-as-you-go pricing
- Easy, immediate project start-up and ramp-down
- The flexibility of deploying a transformed application on the user’s hardware and software, to an existing private cloud or to virtually any public cloud service.
“Application modernization is the perfect cloud use case, because it solves the biggest problems of on-premise solutions – the provisioning delays and high capital expense of development and testing,” said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb Technologies, Inc. “The Nexaweb Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform enables organizations to take the cloud to the cloud – and modernize their entire IT ecosystem of applications, platforms and processes.”
"Standing Cloud is excited to be providing the cloud and platform layer for Nexaweb's groundbreaking application modernization capabilities,” said David J. Jilk, CEO at Standing Cloud. “This partnership enables Nexaweb customers to modernize their application top-to-bottom, including making the deployment architecture cloud-ready."
The Nexaweb Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform consists of separate services tailored for the unique needs of enterprise development, testing and production teams.
Nexaweb devCloud is a self-contained Linux system that includes an Eclipse-based developer desktop and a consolidated dashboard for managing build versions and controlling resource allocation. To meet the needs of enterprise development teams, Nexaweb devCloud allows the user to use the same commercial database and application servers present in their current production environment. Nexaweb devCloud also includes a source code repository so developers can run unit test coverage, static code analysis and trend reports.
Nexaweb testCloud enables the user to test against specific application versions, manage build promotion and simulate the target production environment. It includes a user interface automation station, a performance test station and a consolidated dashboard for build promotion, deployment and access to system statistics and logs across the environment.
Nexaweb prodCloud provides monitoring, maintenance and service-level agreements suitable for production. It is capable of deploying to N machine clusters for application servers and databases, provides backup and archive system components to another provider for redundancy and failover, and granular audit capability for system configuration changes. Nexaweb prodCloud’s consolidated dashboard enables the user to monitor system health across the environment, start, stop or increase resources, and provides clear control over system security.
Pricing and Availability
Nexaweb devCloud is available today and pricing starts at $2,500 per month for up to five developers. Nexaweb testCloud is planned for availability end of Q2 2011 and Nexaweb prodCloud is planned for availability end of Q3 2011.
