AppFog's PaaS is "specifically tailored" to software application developers and offers public cloud capability via www.appfog.com.

AppFog will try to tell us that its reach has been extended (if the two firms can pull off a reasonable integration job) as it now adds its public cloud PaaS to the savvisdirect online channel — it also offers private, dedicated deployments to Savvis' enterprise clients.

"AppFog continues to see strong adoption in the developer community," said Jeff Von Deylen, president of CenturyLink's Savvis organization. "Combining AppFog with Savvis' Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud services and CenturyLink's global network will enable developers to securely and reliably operate and connect the applications they build and deploy."

"We are excited to introduce the AppFog developer community to CenturyLink's Savvis organization," said Lucas Carlson, whose role prior to the acquisition was chief executive officer at AppFog and who now serves as vice president, cloud evangelist, at Savvis. "Developers can expect to see enhancements to our PaaS capabilities, and we look forward to making the full suite of AppFog services available to existing and prospective CenturyLink and Savvis clients."
