Apprenda adds Java to its .NET PaaS

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provider Apprenda has come up with a way to morph single-tenant Java applications into multi-tenant hydras without developers having to do much legwork.

The company announced on Wednesday it had added Java support to its previously .NET-only PaaS.

Apprenda’s technology abstracts the IT runtime environment away from data center infrastructure, cutting the time it takes to develop new applications, much like other PaaS’s such as HerokuEngine Yard, and Cloud Foundry.

The kicker is that Apprenda will also morph your app from single- to multi-tenant as well. This separates it from its rivals and makes it a potentially neat bit of tech for large organizations that are loathe to invest in more developers.
