Apprenda Extends Microsoft’s Service Management Portal for Hosting Service Providers to Enterprise .NET Applications

In continued support of enterprise .NET applications, Apprenda announces today that hosting service providers using Microsoft’s newly introduced Service Management Portal and Service Management API can seamlessly add Apprenda’s best of breed Private Platform as a Service to their list of hosting offerings.

In addition to databases, websites and virtual machines, hosting service providers using Microsoft’s portal can now extend the portal to host .NET enterprise applications through Apprenda.

“We are introducing technologies that enable hosting service providers to use their Windows Server datacenters to deliver capabilities consistent with some of the services running in Windows Azure. Apprenda helps extend these capabilities to include enterprise .NET applications,” said Mike Schutz, General Manager for Windows Server Product Management at Microsoft. “Apprenda provides a solution empowering service providers to offer differentiated services and capabilities to enterprise .NET customers.”

June’s release of Apprenda Azure changed the landscape of .NET cloud enablement by creating the first and only fully symmetrical hybrid cloud within the Microsoft ecosystem. By integrating Apprenda’s Private PaaS capabilities into the Service Management Portal, hybrid symmetry is further enhanced by giving hosters and their customers a consistent user experience and API to acquire and consume private and public cloud services. “We’re excited to be working closely with Microsoft. Apprenda’s private PaaS enables customers to build, deploy and manage enterprise .NET applications and seamlessly migrate between Azure and their own data center.” said Sinclair Schuller, CEO of Apprenda.” By integrating with the Service Management Portal, both hosting service providers and enterprises can take advantage of this functionality through a consistent user-interface both on premises and on Azure.”

Trusted by companies such as Honeywell, Symantec, and Quest Software, Apprenda empowers organizations to achieve significant cost savings and productivity improvements that result in better business/IT alignment.
