Apprenda, a startup that claims to transform legacy infrastructure into modern cloud-based architectures, has announced its latest release. The update allows a customer to run hybrid platform as a service (Paas) simultaneously between the data center and its existing cloud infrastructure.
Apprenda makes it easier for developers to deploy and scale their applications; the service itself is the brainchild of a former application developer. Prior to founding the company, CEO Sinclar Schuller was a software developer at global investment bank Morgan Stanley. He told VentureBeat in a phone conversation his team would often receive requests from a colleague on the business side with a “big idea” for a custom app.
