New York, NY (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
StackMob, the leading cloud-based mobile platform provider, today announced that it extended its mobile application development platform to the open cloud by joining Rackspace® Hosting’s new ecosystem of mobile application developer partners. This ecosystem brings together trusted solutions to make it easier for developers to design, build, test, deploy and scale mobile applications on Rackspace’s open cloud.
Through this alliance, StackMob will deliver its platform to enrich Rackspace’s new mobile application ecosystem. With its robust API and wide array of modules to extend that API, StackMob will collaborate with Rackspace to offer developers a comprehensive mobile app solution to support enterprise mobility and connected services.
“Entrepreneurs and enterprises need a quick way to create apps but they also need a platform that is reliable and supported, “ said Ty Amell, CEO and Co-Founder of StackMob. “StackMob and Rackspace will provide a rock-solid open cloud platform for mobile application developers to create the very best apps for their customers with confidence.”
With nearly three million apps available across nearly a dozen mobile operating systems (Source: CTIA), mobile devices are quickly becoming the de facto way people consume technology. By abstracting the need to architect, build and maintain a cloud-based application, Rackspace and its partners now allow mobile application developers to focus on building elegant apps that are intuitive to end-users.
“We’re pleased to welcome StackMob to this ecosystem. As one of the industry leaders in the mobile app development space today, StackMob provides the advanced functionality we need to empower our developer community to build powerful applications,” said John Engates, CTO of Rackspace. “Together, we aim to eliminate the backend complexities of app building, effectively allowing developers to focus on the user experience, like functionality and user interface.”
StackMob provides an easy to use, reliable, cloud-based backend for mobile applications allowing companies to accelerate their time to market, reduce costs, and deliver outstanding mobile user experiences. The StackMob platform provides a flexible and scalable open solution to support the most mission critical apps. Developers can easily create APIs to store and retrieve data in the cloud, add custom code to enhance those APIs with advanced business logic and easily add functionality through the StackMob Marketplace.
StackMob was listed as a leader in the GigaOM Pro Report “What Developers Should Know When Choosing an MBaaS Solution”, and named an "enterprise ready" provider in the 2012 Forrester Report “Cloud Mobile Development: Enabled By Back-End-As-A-Service, Mobile’s New Middleware.” For more on StackMob, visit http://www.stackmob.com.
