OpenLogic Announces Availability of CloudSwing PaaS Cloud Solution

First-Ever PaaS for the Enterprise With Cost Tracking and Complete Customization of Technology Stacks

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - OpenLogic, Inc., provider of enterprise open source solutions for the cloud and the data center, today announced the general availability of CloudSwing, the industry's first-ever fully flexible Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud solution offering cost-tracking and complete customization of technology stacks.

OpenLogic CloudSwing provides a complete open PaaS solution for enterprises seeking to deploy applications in the cloud. CloudSwing offers an entirely customizable array of infrastructure, languages, and technology stacks, giving companies and developers the flexibility they need to choose the best platforms for all their cloud deployments. The first offering of its kind, CloudSwing is the only PaaS solution with built-in cost management tools to help enterprises understand and manage their cloud costs across multiple clouds. Based on open source technologies, CloudSwing is platform-agnostic and frees enterprises from the limitations of vendor lock-in associated with proprietary tools.

Most enterprises use a variety of languages and technology stacks, so they need the ability to configure cloud platforms exactly to their specifications. Supporting multiple Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) options, including Amazon and Rackspace, CloudSwing provides pre-built stacks for Java, Ruby, PHP, and JavaScript with platforms based on Rails, Tomcat, LAMP, node.js, and nginx. For enterprises and developers, CloudSwing enables complete customization of technology stacks, including the ability to blend open source with proprietary software. CloudSwing users can pick versions of components, add new open-source components, add custom code or third-party commercial code, or create their own technology stacks from scratch.

In addition, CloudSwing incorporates features that help enterprises manage their cloud deployments. CloudSwing is the first-ever PaaS solution with built-in cost management. Using CloudSwing, enterprises have visibility across multiple clouds and cloud accounts, enabling them to understand and manage their cloud costs.

CloudSwing also provides enterprise monitoring and support for cloud deployments. Using New Relic for complete application monitoring, CloudSwing goes beyond the server- or instance-level monitoring offered by most cloud providers. SLA technical support for open-source components and stacks is also available from OpenLogic.

"OpenLogic CloudSwing lets us quickly and easily deploy open source stacks in the cloud," said Shabbir Merchant, CEO at Pragmatic Techsoft. "Thanks to the powerful customization options offered by CloudSwing, we are able to mix-and-match different components, giving our developers the flexibility to choose the best stack for each cloud project."

"To successfully leverage PaaS solutions, enterprises require the flexibility to choose and customize their technology platform. They also require a unified approach to managing the costs and operations of applications across multiple clouds," said Kim Weins, senior vice president of marketing at OpenLogic. "CloudSwing eliminates these barriers, by enabling enterprises and developers to customize a stack from open-source and proprietary components and providing enterprise level management features for managing costs and operations."
