Turn Your Private Cloud into a Self-Service App Platform

By Rakesh Malhotra

While Apprenda runs on any infrastructure (private/public/physical/virtual) capable of surfacing Windows Server instances, many of our customers have existing investments in Hyper-V and System Center. This provides a terrific foundation for building elastic and agile infrastructure but still requires developers to configure virtual machines, load balancers, networking, storage and operating systems. As our customers think about “what’s next”, Apprenda provides a software layer that you can integrate with your existing Hyper-V/System Center private cloud to transform it into an application-centric, multi-tenant cloud for your enterprise devs. You can even run Apprenda across hybrid cloud environments and use application deployment policies to automatically ensure apps get put where you need them to be, all while abstracting this complexity from developers. This frees them up to focus on what matters most – adding business value with amazing applications.

Check out the video below for a demonstration of how Apprenda works with Hyper-V/System Center and Windows Azure from the perspective of both IT Pros and enterprise .NET developers.
