Appcara's AppStack: An Application to Help Companies Accelerate Complex Applications

Today, start-ups and SMEs companies are using Cloud computing to carry out their business operations at lower investment costs.

To offer compelling benefits to businesses with greater flexibility and adaptability, Appcara, a maker of cloud application lifecycle solutions, announced a major new version of its AppStack application and portability platform.

Appcara was created by a group of cloud computing industry veterans in 2010 in Santa Clara, CA (News - Alert).

The new service helps enterprises and service providers accelerate complex applications into the cloud and deliver new application-based revenue sources.

“For a long time, enterprises have been seeking to leverage cloud environments for more complex business applications and take advantage of the flexibility, faster time to market and markedly lower cost structures delivered by the cloud,” said William Fellows, analyst at 451 Research. “AppStack’s ability to capture and assemble these applications graphically in real time is something that businesses can truly leverage for improved efficiency and faster time to market.”

AppStack 2 offers an advanced application layer above public and private clouds – to capture application components, configurations and dependencies in real time in the dynamic Configuration Repository –to automate all aspects of the application lifecycle.

The program decreases low-level dependencies such as operating systems and machine images into its uniquely visual, intuitive and real-time environment, and enables total application portability, even across different public clouds – from Amazon to Rackspace (News - Alert), for instance – as well as from public to private clouds.

AppStack allows cloud computing to expand beyond simple, predefined workloads, and into the realm of serious enterprise applications – with a single pane of glass management interface, eliminating vendor lock-in.

AppStack 2 has been developed upon existing AppStack patent-pending components, used by service providers and enterprise customers.
