Distribute Your Software in the Cloud.
It's Like SaaS. Only Better.
Fast track your cloud distribution strategy with Standing Cloud. We make it quick, easy and cost-effective to distribute your software in the cloud.
There's no need to adapt the code for multi-tenant deployment, or build out infrastructure. With cloud hosting at the point of sale, we can make single-tenant deployment seem like SaaS for your customers, and immediately expand your distribution footprint through our multi-cloud marketplace.
With Standing Cloud, it's turn-key simple to add an entirely new solution option to your mix: one that fits neatly between generic SaaS offerings and “manage yourself” on-prem enterprise software. All at a singled bundled price for software and hosting. And we do all the work - including subscription billing, license sale and usage tracking - at no cost to you.
What could be easier than that?
Cloud Hosting at the Point of Sale
Our custom cloud-based Try & Buy solutions make it easy for potential customers to evaluate your solution by reducing the hassles of downloading software and configuring servers. Instead, they can try out your software with a no-cost demo in the cloud, directly from your web site, with the option to upgrade seamlessly at the end of the trial. All at a single bundled price for software and hosting. Plus, we capture and share all the download data, so you know just who your customers and prospects are. See what we did for MuraCMS.
An App Store in the Cloud
Increase your exposure and expand your potential customer base by distributing your software through our Application Marketplace. It’s an easy-to-use catalog of applications, software and development tools, pre-configured to run instantly and reliably on top of a variety of leading cloud providers with data centers around the world. For your customers, the simple-to-use online storefront and wide choice of familiar clouds reduce purchase friction. Plus, our scripted deployment and automated lifecycle management features make it easy for users to spin up and manage your software, even without sys admin skills.
Automated Application Lifecycle Management
When your application is deployed through Standing Cloud, our management console (fully branded with your look and feel) gives your customers easy point-and-click access to a range of automated application lifecycle management features, including monitoring and backups, version upgrades, resource scaling, and more. Customers can choose when and how to upgrade your application, reducing the support overhead usually associated with wide-scale application upgrades.
Develop Once and Deploy Everywhere
Applications are completely portable from cloud-to-cloud, so users are never locked-in to a single platform or cloud provider. They can quickly add capacity or move to another cloud, and are protected against downtime and service outages.
No Heavy Lifting
We do the work to prepare your application for distribution; you get a deployment that’s cross-cloud ready, and a whole new distribution channel for your application, plug-ins, extensions and more. Plus, we handle all the billing management and reporting.
Standing Cloud's model driven engine automatically "scripts" deployment of the OS, technology stack and application on top of leading cloud infrastructures, providing portability, flexibility and reliability that image-based deployments can't match.
The Standing Cloud platform is built for application scaling, from multiple applications on a single server, to single servers of various sizes, to multi-server, multi-tier horizontally scalable deployments.
Users choose the cloud provider, datacenter or geography of their choice. We connect to the APIs of more than 15 top cloud providers, including Amazon, Rackspace and OpSource.
Flexibility & Control
Operate the deployments on behalf of your customers and manage those deployments using Standing Cloud, or offer it transparently to customers as an easy deployment option.
