Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) March 27, 2012
ISVs and developers that want to focus on building great software without becoming mired in issues of complex deployments or security now have an additional choice for moving their application development to the cloud. Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com), today announced it is supporting Uhuru AppCloud - Service Provider edition via the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud. Uhuru AppCloud – Service Provider edition enhances VMware Cloud Foundry™, the industry’s first open PaaS solution, to provide a comprehensive PaaS offering that supports common languages and frameworks including Java, Ruby on Rails, NodeJS and .NET. Now, using the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud, and Uhuru AppCloud – Service Provider edition, developers can choose whatever language they prefer and focus on building great applications rather than spending time worrying about how to deploy their software on specific cloud services, or how to scale their applications to handle large work-loads.
“Uhuru takes what’s great about Cloud Foundry and extends it to the .NET community without vendor lock-in and constrains. Running Java and .NET apps together, in a single PaaS utilizing common services, is a compelling value proposition,” said Brian Day, Logicalis Director of Cloud Solutions.
“With Logicalis and Uhuru developers can not only have more fun but ensure their applications are cloud ready and secure, using the language of their choice, right from the start,” said Jawad Khaki, CEO of Uhuru Software.
