OpenKM, a leading developer of open source, web-based enterprise document management solutions, today announced the launch of OpenKM Cloud, a new cloud-based offering that makes deploying and managing OpenKM fast, simple and affordable in the cloud.
OpenKM Cloud, built on technology from Standing Cloud, a leading provider of cloud marketplace and management solutions for cloud providers and ISVs, brings choice, flexibility and easy point-and-click installation and management to OpenKM, delivering single-click managed hosting, software licensing, provisioning, deployment, management and back-up at a simple monthly bundled price. Essentially eliminating the need for software downloads, the automated hosted deployment of OpenKM cloud makes it easy to build, test, deploy and scale fully functional OpenKM systems in just a few clicks.
"The ability to offer instant cloud hosting and automated back-ups of OpenKM to our reseller partners, small business users and enterprise customers enables us to reach markets faster and more efficiently than we could with just downloads," said Gaspar Palmer, General Manager of OpenKM. "OpenKM Cloud has all the benefits of SaaS, without having to rewrite code or invest in hardware or infrastructure, and Standing Cloud made it easy for us.”
With OpenKM Cloud, customers can choose the hosting provider, data center and geography of their choice from a wide range of 20 leading public cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, HP Cloud, Rackspace, CloudSigma, Microsoft Windows Azure and more. OpenKM deployments hosted through OpenKM Cloud on Standing Cloud are completely portable from cloud-to-cloud, meaning customers are never locked in to a single platform or cloud provider. They can quickly add capacity or move to another cloud, and are protected against downtime and service outages.
In addition, once the installation is up and running, Standing Cloud’s built-in automated application lifecycle management features provide easy point-and-click access to a range of automated management services, including 24x7 server monitoring, automated back-ups, auto-restore, single-click version and resource upgrades and more.
“At Standing Cloud, we’ve had great success with our hosted cloud solutions for ISVs, particularly with open source enterprise solutions for collaboration, content management, publishing and portals. Extending our solution to OpenKM is an excellent fit,” said Joni Klippert, Director of Customer Development for Standing Cloud. “By reducing the complexity of downloading software and configuring servers, and combining automated back-ups with the choice, flexibility and reliability of multiple clouds in the U.S. and Europe, we’re excited to help OpenKM and their resellers grow their user base.”
OpenKM is available today at http://www.openkm.com/en/cloud-full-service.html. It is priced at $50 per month for up to 50 users, in addition to hosting fees, which will vary based upon the selection of one of the 20 leading cloud providers supported by Standing Cloud.
