ServiceMesh Announces Solution for Enterprise-Grade Cloud Foundry PaaS

Agility Platform Solution Delivers One Click, On-Demand Cloud Portability for Enterprise Cloud Foundry Topologies

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - ServiceMesh, provider of the industry's only enterprise-grade cloud management platform, today announced its Cloud Foundry Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution for the ServiceMesh Agility Platform, which delivers one-click deployment of Cloud Foundry topologies with the essential governance, security and auto scaling capabilities required by large enterprises. ServiceMesh's Cloud Foundry solution automates the ability to build and release application code within a Cloud Foundry topology and extends its auto-scaling benefits. Additionally, ServiceMesh's solution now enables organizations to deploy Cloud Foundry on industry-leading Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

Creating software in PaaS environments, such as Cloud Foundry, where developers can avoid the administrative hassle associated with underlying infrastructure and ensure application scalability, is attractive to large-scale enterprises. With ServiceMesh's release of its Cloud Foundry solution, deploying Cloud Foundry in enterprise hybrid cloud environments is now simple and fast.

 "Enterprise IT organizations need to accelerate the speed with which they can deliver applications to make their business more agile and competitive," said Frank Martinez, chief strategy officer, ServiceMesh. "With ServiceMesh's Cloud Foundry solution for the Agility Platform, a Cloud Foundry PaaS environment can be deployed with full governance and security in just minutes. Enterprises can now realize the full benefits of Cloud Foundry and deliver new applications faster than ever to address market opportunities."

ServiceMesh has also enhanced Cloud Foundry with additional application release automation functionality to support DevOps initiatives. Enterprises need self-service provisioning of Cloud Foundry topologies and the ability to automatically deploy applications onto Cloud Foundry instances to compress application time-to-market. ServiceMesh provides this automated application release functionality for Cloud Foundry and combines policy-based governance and security controls to ensure that application deployments adhere to regulatory constraints and enterprise compliance requirements. 

The ServiceMesh Cloud Foundry solution delivers auto-scaling capabilities at both the platform and infrastructure level, which complement Cloud Foundry's inherent, application-level auto-scaling features. This additional functionality means that when applications grow beyond their allotted infrastructure, ServiceMesh's policy-based, auto-scaling engine will automatically provision the new infrastructure and resources necessary, adding to the Cloud Foundry resource pool and scaling seamlessly without interruption or the need for human intervention.

Agility Platform makes Cloud Foundry enterprise-ready by delivering:

  • One-click, on-demand, self-service deployment of scalable Cloud Foundry topologies on RHEL and other operating systems
  • Ability to deploy and release code onto Cloud Foundry instances
  • Auto-scaling of Cloud Foundry deployments at the application, platform and infrastructure level
  • Enterprise-class governance and security controls as well as portability across heterogeneous cloud models

ServiceMesh's Agility Platform provides a single, consolidated platform for the consistent management, governance, orchestration and delivery of cloud applications, platforms and other services. The Agility Platform orchestrates, automates and manages the deployment of complex topologies, now including Cloud Foundry, across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. It provides a single, policy-driven control point to ensure governance, compliance and security across the full lifecycle of cloud applications developed with the Cloud Foundry PaaS.

ServiceMesh will be demonstrating Cloud Foundry Solution for Agility Platform, as well as its newly announced DevOps Solution and the Agility Platform in booth 307 at VMworld 2012 August 26-30 at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
