Appcara's AppStack Cloud Platform is Verified as Citrix Ready

Appcara today announced that its flagship AppStack cloud application platform has been verified as Citrix Ready. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. AppStack completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix CloudPlatform providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.

With enterprises eagerly seeking greater efficiency for complex applications, market demand is accelerating for solutions that simplify cloud deployment. Now that it is Citrix Ready for CloudPlatform, AppStack is verified to help Citrix enterprise and service provider customers to expedite the deployment of business applications to public and private clouds. These include:

  • Provisioning and managing multi-tier and distributed apps that formerly were restricted to on-premises resources as cloud-based solutions
  • Simplifying Big Data workloads such as Hadoop in clouds
  • Management of cloud apps across the lifecycle from development to production
  • Enterprise App Marketplaces, with pre-packaged applications in a wide variety of categories, as well as a self-service packing and publishing capability for new custom applications from ISV’s or enterprises
  • Enabling multi-cloud support, allowing Citrix CloudPlatform users to move cloud Workloads from non-Citrix public and private clouds into CloudPlatform

The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that AppStack has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with CloudPlatform in order to enable application services for Service Provider delivery on their CloudPlatform based infrastructure services (IaaS), or directly by enterprise users to accelerate their application management in the cloud.

AppStack provides a platform for enterprise application orchestration on top of Citrix CloudPlatform. Through a unique data model-driven approach, AppStack can enable any application into the cloud, from simple stacks to complex multi-tier enterprise apps, and even large-scale distributed apps such as found in today’s Big Data world. By capturing and assembling these apps in its dynamic Configuration Repository, AppStack can fully automate the provisioning of apps into cloud environments such as CloudPlatform, and also provide runtime point-and-click management of these apps through the AppStack Portal over the duration of the application lifecycle. This eliminates the need for any low-level coding or scripting as may be required by server template based solutions.

“It’s still far too complex and time-consuming to launch and manage big distributed applications into the cloud,” said John Yung, CEO and founder, Appcara. “Becoming a member of the Citrix Ready program demonstrates our commitment to work closely with others in the Citrix Ready partner ecosystem to simplify and streamline enterprise cloud application deployment.”
