Global Micro, Apprenda intro cloud PaaS

Global Micro Solutions has partnered with Apprenda to introduce a new platform as a service (PaaS) cloud offering, intended to help businesses build, manage and deploy next-generation cloud applications.

The public PaaS provides a way for customers to scale their massive custom application portfolios, quickly and in a secure cloud environment, says JJ Milner, MD and chief cloud architect for Global Micro.

“Global Micro is the first hosting provider in South Africa to offer Azure Services for Windows,” says Milner. “The Apprenda Platform extends this infrastructure as a service (IaaS) capability with platform as a service. Global Micro is Apprenda’s exclusive delivery partner in Africa and will support the partner and customer community. Apprenda will, in turn, support Global Micro.”

The service will help to maximise the productivity of development teams and increase the speed with which updates and new products can be launched.
