With a simple setup, developers and IT administrators can easily launch a free Apprenda 5.5 image and begin to rapidly build, deploy and manage a scalable private PaaS environment in AWS, a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader.

Apprenda provides a foundational software layer and application runtime environment for creating and delivering an enterprise-class private PaaS (“private” means the platform software is managed by the user). Today’s announcement addresses the increasing demand for hybrid cloud options and the realization that customers are demanding innovation in modern application delivery. Together, Apprenda and AWS deliver the promise of unlimited application capacity by harnessing the power of public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

“Apprenda in AWS allows organizations interested in private PaaS to start using it today for free,” Apprenda CEO Sinclair Schuller said. “Private PaaS is the most promising way to enable hybrid cloud computing models. It gives hybrid the symmetry to host applications in two very different environments, which it was missing before.”
