Kii Launches Dedicated Platform to Accelerate Adoption of Enterprise Apps and Connected Devices

Platform Now Offers Private On-Premises and Multi-Tenant Deployment Options to Meet the Needs of Enterprises and Large Device Manufacturers

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2014) - Kii, the leading end-to-end mobile backend provider, today announced the availability of its dedicated platform, empowering businesses with the flexibility to run backend capabilities for their apps and connected devices in their own datacenters or as a hosted cloud service with Kii. Designed to meet the needs of enterprises and device manufacturers, this launch will enable businesses to create and run high-performance mobile apps, while maintaining control over app deployment, delivery and data. In addition users will have the ability to more efficiently meet regulatory and security requirements.

Enterprise companies and device manufacturers will benefit from this launch with these key features:

  • Supports organizations with regulatory or policy guidelines that do not permit off-premise hosting.

  • Optimally supports businesses as they grow by offering speed, security and flexibility. Customers can start on a multi-tenant cloud, which can serve as a Launchpad, and then move to dedicated instances as they scale, or their customers and partners require them to run apps on-premises.

  • Ensures through the environment isolation that platform resources are dedicated to a specific customer and not shared across customers, providing unparalleled scale, reliability and performance

With Kii's dedicated platform, both multi-tenant and dedicated options are fully managed, comprising of the same backend "stack." This includes enterprise-grade features and development tools such as cloud storage, push notifications, user management, analytics, A/B testing and user acquisition services. In addition, customers can customize their dedicated deployment to align with their company's brand to maintain consistency for better serving their customers and partners.

"Backend platforms are essential and easy to manage for developers. However, the adoption for enterprises seems to open Pandora's box on many fronts including control to protecting sensitive data, to maintaining compliance and security requirements," said Masanari Arai, CEO of Kii. "With our new dedicated platform, enterprise businesses now have the choice to pick the right deployment option that best fits their needs -- multi-tenant, dedicated, or the combination of two -- for their mobile and IoT initiatives, allowing them to focus on solving real business challenges."

Some of Kii's large enterprise customers and carriers in Asia are already running the platform in dedicated mode. After the initial success of its trial run in Asia, Kii decided to bring the platform to the US and other markets, as it has seen an increased demand in its dedicated and fully-private model, in order to better control apps and connected device deployments. For enterprises and device manufacturers in regulated industries, such as healthcare, financial payment processing, this is especially true.

"As a gaming studio that ships several titles and serves millions of users, it is very important for us to run on an architecture that delivers optimized performance, security and scale," said Vinnie Reddy, CEO BlueGiant Interactive. "We are happy that Kii is providing a flexible platform so we can efficiently serve our customers -- from early piloting a title to realizing and scaling it massively with consistently high performance, security and reliability."

Kii's customers can utilize the platform to accelerate time to market in creating apps that will connect with devices, while also having the confidence of a secure and compliant infrastructure that provides control and data privacy to best serve their customers and partners.
