Certeon Partners with CloudOne to Automate Secure Access to Developer Cloud

Organizations globally are suffering from the high cost and complexity of acquiring, deploying and managing distributed developer collaboration solutions. CloudOne, the leader in lifting software and systems development onto the cloud, solves this problem by providing enterprises with a fully hosted one-stop developer solution that can be up and running in minutes, is secure and scalable and provides the same performance as if the application was running locally. Certeon, the application performance company, today announced a partnership with CloudOne to provide the software infrastructure for enabling automated, secure, optimized access to integrated development environments (IDE) in the cloud for developers using the IBM Rational product suite.   

CloudOne’s cloud development solution elevates distributed development team collaboration through secure virtual private clouds. Combined with Certeon’s application acceleration technology, aCelera, the partnership delivers unparalleled application performance, control and security for developers looking to collaborate in the cloud. By having the IDE in a secure, optimized cloud environment, organizations and their developers can bypass many of the common challenges associated with such an environment, including huge up front setup costs, downtime, painfully slow synchronization of workflows, unavailability of shared code bases, software maintenance, systems scalability and high TCO.

“At CloudOne, we continually strive to improve our cloud-developing solution, and partnering with Certeon is the next step in providing the most comprehensive and advanced solution on the market,” said John McDonald, CEO, CloudOne. “Think about it. Virtually any developer can be up and running in minutes on a secure link to other globally distributed developers. Certeon’s aCelera is a software-based solution with a proven flexible and cost-effective approach to optimized access to applications in the cloud. We are excited to couple aCelera’s benefits with our ability to lift software and systems development to the cloud, ensuring our customers’ developers application access is fast, reliable and secure. The low cost flexibility of the offering – which was able to fit in our existing VMware environment – was a key reason to join forces. Certeon’s software flexibility and scalability is unrivaled; no other optimization vendor can provide this offering enabling this level of cloud services.”

While collaborating in the cloud has clear benefits, organization must be mindful of issues that can arise with regards to privacy and security. Enterprises need to create private networks within a cloud provider’s infrastructure to make the network an extension of the enterprise network. This enables more user confidence when working in the cloud. Flexibility in transfer of applications across computing environments is also significant, along with ensuring optimized connectivity in the cloud. The Certeon and CloudOne partnership alleviates all of those problems by providing a virtual VPN connection between any user and the cloud application.

“aCelera has just changed the game for cloud services providers that need to deliver automated access and meet application SLA’s in a secure cloud,” said Peter Dougherty, President and CEO, Certeon. “We’re pleased to partner with CloudOne and offer aCelera, allowing organizations of any size to capitalize on the benefits of the cloud by unleashing the value of distributed development and enabling any developer on the planet access to their application and code base automatically and securely. Why would any organization not want to provide this offering for their developers? It’s faster, secure and less expensive. This partnership allows any global organization the option to exploit the promise of cloud computing in minutes.
