Recently, OpenKM launched the OpenKM Cloud, a new cloud-based offering that facilitates deployment and management of OpenKM easily and cost-effectively in the cloud. The company specializes in developing open source, Web-based enterprise document management solutions.
Gaspar Palmer, general manager of OpenKM said, “The ability to offer instant cloud hosting and automated back-ups of OpenKM to our reseller partners, small business users and enterprise customers enables us to reach markets faster and more efficiently than we could with just downloads. OpenKM Cloud has all the benefits of SaaS (News - Alert), without having to rewrite code or invest in hardware or infrastructure, and Standing Cloud made it easy for us.”
The OpenKM Cloud is built upon the Standing Cloud technology platform. Standing Cloud provides cloud marketplace and management solutions for cloud providers and ISVs and will enable flexible and easy point-and-click installation and management to OpenKM.
This capability offers single-click managed hosting besides simple software licensing, provisioning, deployment, management and back-up. There is no need for software downloads and the automated hosted deployment of OpenKM cloud facilitates the building, testing, deployment and full functional scalability of OpenKM systems.
Further, OpenKM Cloud allows customers to choose their hosting provider, as well as data center location from a choice of 20 public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (News - Alert), HP Cloud, Rackspace, CloudSigma and Microsoft Windows Azure.
Joni Klippert, director of Customer Development for Standing Cloud added, “At Standing Cloud, we’ve had great success with our hosted cloud solutions for ISVs, particularly with open source enterprise solutions for collaboration, content management, publishing and portals. Extending our solution to OpenKM is an excellent fit.”
