Nexaweb Partners with Standing Cloud to Provide Groundbreaking Application Modernization Platform
Platform-as-a-Service solution built on Standing Cloud’s platform-as-a-service layer makes application transition to the public cloud quicker and more reliable.
May 16, 2011: Standing Cloud, Inc. announced today that Nexaweb is using Standing Cloud technology to support its new Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform, which launched today.
Nexaweb’s Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform is the industry’s only platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that leverages the efficiencies of the cloud for development and testing to quickly transform legacy client/server applications into modern, Java-based web applications. The Nexaweb Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform is built on a Standing Cloud PaaS layer that can be deployed on virtually any public cloud.
Nexaweb’s Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform provides:
- Reliable and elastic on-demand development resources, unlimited testing scalability and pay-as-you-go pricing
- Easy, immediate project start-up and ramp-down
- The flexibility of deploying a transformed application on the user’s hardware and software to an existing private cloud or to any public cloud service
“Application modernization is the perfect cloud use case, because it solves the biggest problems of on-premise solutions – the provisioning delays and high capital expense of development and testing,” said Chris Heidelberger, CEO of Nexaweb Technologies, Inc. “The Nexaweb Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform enables organizations to take the cloud to the cloud – and modernize their entire IT ecosystem of applications, platforms and processes.”
"Standing Cloud is excited to be providing the cloud and platform layer for Nexaweb's groundbreaking application modernization capabilities. This partnership enables Nexaweb customers to modernize their application top-to-bottom, including making the deployment architecture cloud-ready," said David J. Jilk, CEO of Standing Cloud.
Standing Cloud is the only platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that enables cloud users to deploy, manage, customize and/or develop applications on a variety of cloud services and with several programming languages. The service supports PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, and Python, as well as 80+ complete open source applications that can be deployed by end users with a few clicks.
Because Standing Cloud supports a broad array of cloud infrastructure services, Nexaweb customers can deploy their development environment on any of the leading public clouds, including Amazon, Rackspace, OpSource, SoftLayer, GoGrid, Linode, and several others. In the event of service or network outages, the customer’s Client/Server-to-Cloud environment can be moved in a few minutes, with a few clicks, to another data center or cloud service.
Standing Cloud is backed by Foundry Group and Avalon Ventures and was founded in 2009 by CEO David J. Jilk, former CEO of Xaffire, an online application monitoring company that was sold to Quest Software in 2005. Board members include Brad Feld of Foundry Group and Rich Levandov at Avalon.
