Apprenda: an alternative PaaS for .NET

As Citrix is to Microsoft Terminal Services, or VMware is to Microsoft Virtual Server, so Apprenda wants to be to Azure. The firm sees PaaS as the new Application Server rather than the new virtualisation.

Apprenda’s goal is to provide a development experience that is business as usual for Windows .NET developers, making multi-tenancy into a configuration decision, by taking a standard app, automatically instrumenting the app, managing data isolation and transformation (even at the row level), making the app appropriate for the cloud.
