Apprenda Updates Software for Private PaaS

Apprenda, the developer of software for creating private platform-as-a-service clouds, is adding features that offer users better control over applications running on the platform.

Businesses that use Apprenda install the software, which supports .Net applications, in their own data centers. With the software in place, developers in a business log into the PaaS via a Web-based console and use it just like they might use Microsoft’s own Azure PaaS. By running an internal PaaS, businesses can dramatically speed up the time to launch new applications while complying with security and legal restrictions, Apprenda said.

With Apprenda 3.0, the company hopes to make it very easy for organizations to install and manage the software, Apprenda CEO Sinclair Schuller said.
