Certeon Announces aCelera Cloud Optimization Solution For Public and Private Cloud Interconnectivity

Certeon, the application performance company, today announced the launch of aCelera Cloud, its software cloud optimization and application acceleration solution that enables automated and secure public and private cloud interconnectivity.   

aCelera Cloud allows companies to securely connect their private cloud to virtually any public cloud provider, while reducing application response times and increasing their effective network throughput. With this technology, companies can securely access applications and data in any cloud without the need of additional network devices or complex configuration. Because aCelera Cloud simultaneously supports multiple hypervisors and includes a complete central management system, it provides unrivaled deployment flexibility to global organizations, allowing them to automatically and securely connect users in their MPLS-based private cloud to multiple cloud providers using a single optimization solution. aCelera Cloud also enables cloud providers to deliver enhanced application performance and streamlined onboarding of new customers by automating and optimizing data replication between clouds.

“As application services from cloud providers mature, the long-term benefits of automated and secure access to the applications, and associated cost-savings and flexibility, will be indisputable. Many organizations still have concerns over the security and control of their applications and business-critical information,” said Peter Dougherty, President and CEO, Certeon. “Being able to automatically create virtual private networks, connecting any cloud infrastructure running any application with aCelera Cloud, tackles these concerns head on.”

Certeon is giving companies the freedom to change cloud providers knowing their applications will be safe, while still easily and quickly accessible. As a software solution, aCelera Cloud is ideally suited for private, hybrid and public cloud environments, because it enables massively scalable infrastructure, and also eliminates a providers’ need to increase investment in new hardware, maximizing the infrastructure they have in place.

Cloud providers that are offering application services require elasticity supporting many use cases, workloads and topologies. aCelera Cloud meets this need by including the most scalable and flexible cloud optimization and application acceleration platform on the market. It is delivered as a virtual appliance and supports all the major virtualization platforms used by leading cloud providers, including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen, KVM and Amazon EC2. aCelera Cloud interoperates with the aCelera product suite enabling secure and accelerated access to public and private clouds for remote office users as well as mobile users globally.

“As a recent partner of Certeon’s offering a developer cloud, we’re pleased to attack some of the current issues facing companies transitioning to the cloud by providing the software infrastructure for enabling automated, secure, optimized access to integrated development environments,” said John McDonald, CEO of CloudOne, which is leveraging aCelera Cloud to provide a comprehensive cloud based developer solution. “As a software solution, aCelera Cloud is a flexible and cost-effective approach to optimized access to applications in the cloud.”

Dougherty continued, “With aCelera Cloud, we’ve changed the game for meeting secure application accessibility and performance SLA’s. aCelera’s cloud-bridging capability and ability to extend the enterprise network seamlessly out to the public cloud providers is an innovation that empowers cloud providers and organizations to unleash the ease of use advantages and benefits of low-cost cloud computing. aCelera Cloud makes the cloud dream of automated secure and optimized data access for any user accessing any application, on any device, across any network a reality.”
