CumuLogic has today announced the public beta version of its new PaaS solution, which is designed to enable enterprises and ISVs to build and manage Java PaaS in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.
This technology essentially aims to provide control for application infrastructures, while simultaneously enabling developers with the capability to focus on rapidly engineering new apps at the same time.
"Today's clouds are complex and all different. There is almost no interoperability between cloud providers and between public and private clouds," said James Gosling, technical advisory board member at CumuLogic.
Note: The arguably heavy-handed quote is indeed attributed the "the" James (father of the Java language and platform) Gosling.
"I'm enthusiastic about CumuLogic's PaaS cloud management solution as it utilizes the higher levels of abstraction inherent in the PaaS model to reduce the complexity of cloud management, provides targeted facilities for both developers and management, and erases the distinctions between the various clouds enabling transparent interoperability," added Gosling.
CumuLogic says it is focused on delivering a best-of-breed technology that provides users with the flexibility and features to accelerate application development, while also providing control to IT organizations to adhere to security and compliance requirements when using public clouds.
James Gosling and Bill Vass, former CIO of Sun Microsystems and president of Sun Federal, lead CumuLogic's Technical Advisory Board.
"By enabling customers to leverage their existing investment in Java development, CumuLogic is in a position to help enterprises transition to the cloud with minimal risk and retooling," said Peder Ulander, VP of product marketing, Cloud Platforms Group, Citrix Systems.
CumuLogic says it provides a complete solution for public and private clouds running on Amazon EC2, Cloud.com (acquired by Citrix), Eucalyptus, and VMware — with OpenStack coming soon.
The product provides support for multiple clouds, which allows clouds from multiple vendors to be supported at the same time. Also included is the ability to mix-and-match middleware software components, which enable the deployment of modern applications, as well as consolidation of legacy Java applications to a single platform, substantially lowering the cost of managing various application infrastructure assets.
