Launches TopStack Web Edition, enabling developers to deploy Amazon-compatible PaaS solutions in private clouds
AUSTIN, Texas, June 11 — Transcend Computing, an innovator in Amazon Compatible Environments (ACE) for public, private and hybrid cloud computing, today announced that it is releasing TopStack Web Edition, a set of platform services (PaaS) that emulate the Amazon Web Services (AWS) APIs. Transcend Computing was formed to help developers, enterprises and managed service providers to capitalize on the momentum of AWS.
TopStack Web Edition provides a set of as-a-service offerings that are interoperable with Amazon Web Services (AWS) PaaS and can be deployed in your data center. This interoperability enables organizations to more easily migrate applications between private and public clouds. The offering includes:
-- TopStack Container Service – enables auto-scaling and recovery of Java/PHP applications and is compatible with Amazon's Elastic Beanstalk.
-- TopStack Caching Service – provides an in-memory caching array to increase performance and is compatible with Amazon's ElastiCache.
-- TopStack Relational Data Service – offers self-service provisioning of databases and is compatible with Amazon's Relational Database Services.
-- TopStack Load Balancer – distributes incoming application traffic across servers and is compatible with Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer.
These services can be launched in the safety of an organizations' own data center or can be deployed at a preferred outsourced hosting location.
"We believe that Amazon Web Services has defined the de facto approach to cloud computing, which will endure as the industry standard for public, private and hybrid clouds," said Jeff Schneider, founder of Transcend Computing. "Until now, organizations have only been able to deliver AWS hybrid solutions up to the IaaS layer. TopStack Web Edition extends the reach of the AWS PaaS platform to your preferred data center or cloud provider."
Amazon Compatible Environments (ACE) are public and private cloud platforms that embrace the Amazon APIs as the basis for application portability. Uniform APIs ensure that applications can move seamlessly across cloud platforms to enable true hybrid cloud use cases. This helps enterprises to drive down costs, achieve greater agility, and it enables a competitive ecosystem of cloud providers to deliver unique value through differentiated features and service levels.
Use cases for TopStack Web Edition include:
-- Building PaaS based applications on private clouds and migrating to public clouds for production scale-out.
-- Joining public and private clouds to create uniform hybrid clouds that share the workload.
-- Avoiding 'cloud disasters' by making applications on PaaS available in multiple vendor clouds (active/passive) for business continuity.
Available today, TopStack Web Edition is available in both enterprise and service provider licensing models. http://www.transcendcomputing.com/topstack/
