CumuLogic Delivers Java PaaS for OpenStack

CumuLogic, a Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) software provider, today announced that the company now supports OpenStack. The move will increase underlying infrastructure choices for developers and organizations using the CumuLogic platform and will bring an enterprise-grade PaaS offering to OpenStack, freeing users from proprietary cloud platforms. Backed by more than 110 participating organizations including Cisco, Citrix, Dell, HP and Rackspace, OpenStack is an open source cloud operating system for public and private clouds.

"Platform-as-a-Service offerings are becoming increasingly important for developers using the cloud to accelerate their deployments," said Mark Collier, Vice President for Rackspace Cloud Builders. "With the Diablo release, OpenStack's capabilities are stronger than ever for these users, so support from PaaS solutions only enhances their experience and support this growing segment of cloud users."

"By integrating their PaaS with Citrix CloudStack, CumuLogic provides their customers with added choice, while offering the expertise to deliver a PaaS for OpenStack," said Peder Ulander, Vice President of Product Marketing, Cloud Platforms Group, Citrix Systems. "We look forward to seeing the OpenStack community grow and thrive as more customers deploy clouds."

CumuLogic’s PaaS solution - currently in beta, enables enterprises, cloud providers and ISVs to leverage Java PaaS to deploy highly scalable applications in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. CumuLogic’s platform also provides enterprises with the means to standardize their IT application infrastructure, simplifying development environments while giving developers the capability to focus on quality applications.

The move further extends CumuLogic’s commitment to the open cloud and follows last month’s introduction of their complete solution for public and private clouds running on Amazon, Citrix, Eucalyptus, VMware, and now OpenStack. CumuLogic PaaS can be provisioned on multiple clouds simultaneously allowing organizations to architect and deploy highly scalable, fault tolerant applications. Additionally, CumuLogic PaaS enables enterprises to leverage public clouds while maintaining a consistent deployment environment across on-premise clouds and public clouds.

“CumuLogic remains focused on enabling organizations to retain their existing investments in Java technology while improving developer productivity and leveraging the agility and economics of cloud computing,” said Rajesh Ramchandani, Founder and VP of products at CumuLogic. “Integrating with OpenStack platform only furthers our purpose of bringing a standard PaaS to the cloud and increasing freedom of choice for enterprises, ISVs and cloud providers.”
