SAN FRANCISCO, Calif (PRWEB) September 19, 2014
Today, ElasticBox, the company that enables IT as a Service along with real-time collaboration on the delivery of applications, announces the launch of the ElasticBox Virtual Appliance and the ElasticBox MyServer Edition. Now, in addition to supporting public clouds such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft, customers can install ElasticBox in their own datacenter and deploy applications on physical or virtual machines. These features will enable any enterprise--regardless of their adoption of the cloud--to achieve faster time-to-market by adopting DevOps best practices like real-time collaboration between developers and IT operations.
Even though “cloud computing” has become a household term, market data shows that companies currently virtualize less than 50 percent of their servers. Businesses use physical servers for a variety of reasons such as: leveraging existing investments, security, privacy, control over upgrade cycles and the limited support for certain third-party applications on non-physical infrastructure. As a result, the majority of enterprises have a mix of infrastructure -- physical, virtualized, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud. As their infrastructural investments change, ElasticBox will enable a smooth transition to the cloud without an overhaul of applications.
“ElasticBox, with its advanced workload mobility features and on-demand provisioning, is helping enterprises focus on rapid innovation and application delivery irrespective of their choice of infrastructure.” said Jay Lyman, analyst with 451 Research.
Customers can download the Virtual Appliance in a few easy steps at elasticbox.com/appliance and quickly install it in their vSphere, OpenStack, or CloudStack environments. The Appliance gives customers full control over their data, update cycles and access to public clouds.
The ElasticBox MyServer Edition, an industry-first, will enable customers to use ElasticBox to deploy applications using converged infrastructure provided by vendors such as: VCE, AMAX Information Technologies, Dell, Nutanix, Hewlett-Packard and IBM. Enterprises can now be fully-prepared for a cloud migration strategy by leveraging the ElasticBox Workload Mobility features.
The ElasticBox MyServer Edition will also enable developers to be more agile--setting up development environments on their laptops while maintaining consistency with production environments for an easier path to releasing cool features.
“Our mission is to bring the benefits of DevOps and streamlined application delivery practices to every IT organization in the world, completely agnostic of their infrastructure investments. The support for physical servers and our virtual appliance brings us another step closer to that mission.” said Ravi Srivatsav, CEO and Co-founder of ElasticBox.
