By teaming up with Uhuru, PeakColo is now able to use its deep experience in running reliable and secure datacenters to offer developers and IT managers an easier way to host and manage their web applications without having to manage servers or virtual machines.
DENVER – September 25, 2012 – PeakColo, Inc, one of the fastest growing service providers in the United States, today announced the introduction of a multi-platform Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providing more choice for developers who want to host their web applications without having to worry about the hassles of managing their own servers or virtual machines. Powered by PaaS technology from Uhuru Software, Inc., a Redmond, WA software start-up that helps developers deploy and manage their applications on the cloud, the PeakColo PaaS allows developers and IT managers to move their web applications to public or private clouds with the click of a few buttons, automatically taking care of load balancing and fail-over.
Customers will be able to sign up for trial accounts when the PeakColo PaaS trial becomes available in the coming weeks. You can learn more about the Uhuru AppCloud at http://www.uhurusoftware.com.
By using Uhuru technology, called the Uhuru AppCloud, and drawing on their experience in building and managing highly secure and reliable data centers, PeakColo was able to construct a PaaS that gives developers the flexibility and simplicity they want in deploying and managing their applications in the cloud.
“With the PeakColo PaaS, we have removed the complexity of cloud computing, and proprietary lock-ins that bedevil cloud computing, while delivering a level of security to the cloud that was previously only available on closed networks,” said Luke Norris, PeakColo CEO.
PeakColo will also be offering the new PaaS as a white label offering for Value Added Resellers who wish to offer a PaaS to their customers without having to host it themselves.
Currently in beta, the Uhuru’s AppCloud PaaS technology has gained over 3000 users since it was made publicly available on June 25th of 2012. The Uhuru AppCloud provides a comprehensive cross-platform PaaS, making it possible to deploy and manage applications on a wide variety of language platforms including .NET, Ruby, Node.js and Java. IT Managers and developers can use command line tools or the Windows Cloud Admin client software to deploy and manage their applications in the cloud. Additionally, there are plugins for major Integrated Development Environments like Visual Studio allowing developers to deploy their apps directly from their programming tools.
“Developers want to focus on building great software without getting mired in the issues of complex deployments or security,” said Jawad Khaki, CEO of Uhuru. “By using the PeakColo service software engineers can not only have more fun but ensure their applications are cloud ready and secure, using the language of their choice, right from the start.”
