GoGrid and Appistry Announce Cloud Partnership Initiative

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008 by

Today, GoGrid and Appistry announced a new partnership initiative. The full press release is below:

Appistry Extends Cloud Computing Reach

New Partnerships and Pricing Simplify the Delivery of Critical Applications Via Third-Party Clouds

ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Appistry, a provider of cloud application platform software, today announced a new partnership initiative and pricing that makes it easier for enterprises to deliver highly scalable and reliable applications via third-party “public clouds.” The announcement extends the reach of the company’s flagship product, Appistry Enterprise Application Fabric (EAF), which powers cloud-based applications for Global 2000 companies, high-profile government agencies and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers.

The announcement is part of the company’s strategy to address the complex challenges enterprises face developing, deploying and managing applications in both public and private clouds. Appistry’s cloud application platform simplifies cloud computing and allows enterprises to more easily realize its full promise — elastic scalability, solid reliability and automated management.

Leading analyst firms and industry experts have said better tools are required to help enterprises successfully make the move to the cloud-based architectures popularized by firms such as Yahoo and eBay.

According to Forrester Research vice president and principal analyst Frank Gillett, “Vendors such as Appistry… offer various versions of software tools and architecture to enable firms to build cloud IT architectures without the handcrafting that Web giants resort to.” (December 2007, There are Three IT Architectures, Not One”)

As part of a new partnership initiative, Appistry is extending the availability of its application platform to a number of leading cloud infrastructure providers. Through the program, these providers will allow customers to:

  • Access pre-configured versions of its Appistry EAF Community Edition on Microsoft Windows or Linux;
  • Create new Appistry-powered virtual machines on-demand, to scale-out applications with a simple mouse click;
  • Purchase full Appistry EAF licenses directly through each partner via direct end-user billing, when and where available.
