What's happening at Standing Cloud's cloud, application and solution provider partners.
Congrats to this open-source digital advertising platform for closing a $20 million in series D financing from SAP, AOL and others. Funds will be used for expansion in Asia and strategic acquisitions.
This month, we added more cloud providers to our offering, and this week, we made it easier to choose one in the "configurator." We're also sticking to our plan to give you as much control as you need, adding support for post-deployment scripts, as well as access to a status log display. As well, continued expansion for multi-app hosting support. Here's all the details:
Today we joined with Nexaweb for the launch of its new Client/Server-to-Cloud Platform, which will use Standing Cloud technology.
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.

It has not been a good day for anyone running an application on Amazon Web Services' ultra-popular EC2. Several data centers experienced a major outage: Down for 12 hours, and as a result, hundreds of sites, big and small, down too. Services like Quora, Reddit, Heroku and Foursquare have been out all day, due to the failure of multiple "availability zones" in Amazon's east coast data centers.
