Blue River today announced the launch of MuraCloud Hosting, the premier hosting option for Mura CMS. Blue River partnered with Standing Cloud, a provider of cloud infrastructure and management services, (who was very recently in news when SetSeed CMS launched a new hosted cloud solution built on their platform) to develop MuraCloud for businesses and other organizations looking for high-quality, high-performance Mura CMS hosting in the cloud.
MuraCloud is fast, convenient and extraordinarily portable, enabling MuraCloud customers to deploy a new production-ready instance of Mura CMS in just a few minutes. Users simply choose the cloud provider, data center and geography of their choice from a wide range of leading public cloud providers, specify RAM size and disk space, and the site is available instantly.
Mura CMS deployments hosted through MuraCloud on Standing Cloud are completely portable from cloud-to-cloud, meaning users are never locked into a single platform or cloud provider; options include Amazon Web Services (AWS GovCloud is coming soon), Rackspace, GoGrid, VPS.net and more. Users can quickly add capacity or move to another cloud, and are protected against downtime and service outages. Each MuraCloud instance is deployed on industry-standard, open source solutions, including: Mura CMS, Railo, MySQL, Tomcat, Apache, and Ubuntu or Cent OS.
Once the Mura CMS instance is up and running, MuraCloud provides simple point-and-click access to easy-to-use application management tools, including automated backups, monitoring services, resource scaling and more.
“We’re excited to work with the team at Blue River to help bring Mura CMS to cloud, making it possible to deliver single-click hosting, provisioning, deployment and management for their customers at a simple monthly bundled price,” said Joni Klippert, Director of Customer Development ,Standing Cloud. “With the choice, flexibility and reliability of multiple clouds, it’s great for organizations, enterprises and small business users in the cloud.”
Mura Cloud is available today at www.muracloud.com. Customers interested in evaluating the solution can get started immediately with a no-cost two hour hosted “Test Drive” in the cloud on any one of the 15+ supported cloud providers.
“We developed Mura CMS with the goal of making it simple to publish web content quickly and easily, and now Mura Cloud takes it to a whole new level, delivering instant hosting and management in just a few clicks,” said Sean Schroeder, one of the lead developers of Mura CMS and partner at Blue River Interactive Group. “Enabling our users to choose from more than 15 leading cloud providers from a single interface is a key benefit and unique advantage for Standing Cloud, and we’re excited to be working with them.”
Blue River and Standing Cloud will be showcasing MuraCloud in a special Mura Show web cast on Wednesday, January 16th at 1:00 Pacific Time. They’ll provide a walk-through of all the great features, and will include a Question/Answer segment during the show. Click here for more information: www.getmura.com/support/mura-show .
