Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) March 13, 2012
Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, today announced it has delivered hosting of private Cloud Foundry instances via the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud. As companies adopt cloud technologies such as VMware vCenter™ and VMware vCloud™ Director, they are often updating their existing enterprise applications to take advantage of the many benefits a cloud platform provides, such as capacity, scalability and redundancy. With this in mind, Logicalis has focused its cloud solutions team on achieving excellence with VMware technologies. Logicalis specializes in building and migrating enterprise applications to the cloud, while the VMware-initiated Cloud Foundry open-source application development platform enjoys broad industry support.
“VMware technologies have been at the core of Logicalis' development framework for years. They have significantly accelerated our development efforts, decreasing the time to value for our customers, enabling Logicalis to help our clients build applications faster, scale applications better, and do it all in a less expensive and more open manner,” says Brian Day, Logicalis’ director of Cloud Solutions.
Private Cloud Foundry Instances
The Logicalis Enterprise Cloud makes all the benefits of cloud computing and managed services available to customers on demand. It provides a multi-tiered cloud infrastructure built on a set of predefined services with flexible support levels designed to meet customers’ exact needs.
Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS), providing enterprise developers a choice of clouds, frameworks and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy and scale applications.
As one of many services offered via the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud, customers can now run a private Cloud Foundry instance. Cloud Foundry is important to Logicalis as it represents an easy-to-develop, easy-to-manage development platform that is open and flexible.
“Cloud Foundry’s openness allows for great flexibility and extension as witnessed by cloud providers like Logicalis who are helping customers host and setup private Cloud Foundry instances,” Day says.
