Apprenda 4.5 Release of its Private PaaS Allows Any Enterprise System to be Delivered “as-a-Service” and Unveils a New User Experience for Developers

Apprenda, the leader in enterprise private platform-as-a-service, today unveils a next generation PaaS user experience for its developers and an extensive library of add-on capabilities giving partners and customers a way to integrate enterprise application systems “as a service” with associated security, quota and other policy controls compliant with IT policies.

The add-on system enables the Global 2000 to integrate with their existing internal systems, which are often custom designed and industry specific. Developers can access the service catalog to provision and incorporate these services into applications running on the Apprenda platform.

Apprenda’s updated user experience offers a more seamless way to scale massive application portfolios, integrate with all existing IT investments and provides an improved self-service approach to developers who launch new applications over the Apprenda platform, further removing the friction between developers and IT through single-click application deployment.

“This release of the Apprenda platform continues to provide customers with an unprecedented time to market, where their application deployment goes from weeks or months to minutes per app,” said Rakesh Malhotra, vice president of product management at Apprenda. “Apprenda’s private PaaS gives fine grained cost control to organizations and reduces over provisioning whereby only assigning what utilization is really needed. That can save enterprises millions a year.”

The Apprenda 4.5 release has capitalized on feedback from Apprenda’s enterprise installed base requesting new APIs and automated SLA enforcements for applications, amongst other features detailed below:

  • Improved REST API for Apprenda Developer Portal  – in addition to SOAP and Apprenda’s Command Shell (ACS), the platform now offers an improved REST API enabling additional enterprise and partner integration options.
  • Updated Developer Portal UX – Apprenda has unveiled a new UX for the developer portal. The sleeker, more responsive experience helps developers find and accomplish tasks faster.
  • Automated SLA Enforcement for Applications – Apprenda now enables developers and platform operators to specify ‘minimum instance counts’ for their application components. The platform automatically monitors and scales applications to help ensure customers stay compliant with enterprise SLAs.
