SpringSource Launches The Enterprise Java Cloud

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpringSource, the leader in Java application infrastructure and management, today introduced SpringSource Cloud Foundry, a new Enterprise Java Cloud offering that enables developers to deploy and manage Spring, Grails and Java applications within a public cloud environment. SpringSource is the first vendor to offer a self-service, pay-as-you-go, public cloud deployment platform for full-feature Java web applications that unifies the entire build, run and manage application lifecycle for Java.

Numerous technology vendors and industry analysts have touted the advantages of cloud computing, which enables companies to rent infrastructure from third-party providers to run enterprise applications outside of their own datacenter. Such an approach saves time and internal resources and allows companies to pay-as-they-go as they use infrastructure for applications. SpringSource's new offering enables deployment within a public cloud as a new option for enterprise Java applications.

Cloud Foundry is based on SpringSource's recent acquisition of Cloud Foundry, Inc., an Oakland, Calif. - based software company. SpringSource Cloud Foundry is built on the innovative open-source Cloud Tools project and extends SpringSource's solutions for building, deploying and managing Java applications to take full advantage of the power of elastic cloud computing. Cloud Foundry, now incorporated into SpringSource's product line, launches and automatically scales Java web applications in the cloud with a few clicks of the mouse.

"As the leader in enterprise Java, SpringSource offers the most complete solution set for building, deploying and managing Java applications, and today's announcement adds a new deployment model in the cloud," said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource. "Unlike competitive offerings, our cloud service does not come with compromises; companies can deploy full-feature Java web applications, built using SpringSource tools. C-level technology executives can seamlessly add cloud computing as a strategic option as part of their development roadmap."
