DAILYHOSTNEWS, October 18, 2011 – rPath, the application engine provider for the private cloud, has announced the general availability of rPath Cloud Engine. The rPath Cloud Engine is a new software solution that empowers cloud technology vendors and managed service providers with the ability to deliver critical applications with consistency, reliability and speed. The software also plugs and plays into any cloud technology ecosystem.
Built on the proven system automation platform of rPath X6, rPath Cloud Engine features an unprecedented, model-driven approach to provisioning and update that is push-button simple. rPath Cloud Engine automatically generates software configurations based on an application’s current run-time environment, eliminating the need for labor-intensive, error-prone approaches to image creation, such as golden images and manual scripts.
Key features of the rpath Cloud Engine include: deeper API integration which offers the ability to access critical applications via either web browser or rPath Cloud Engine GUI, model-driven image creation which ensures push-button application delivery across heterogeneous targets, as well as on-demand systems update and rollback.
The cloud Engine also offers multi-tenancy which enables customer base segmentation so as to meet unique requirements without compromising reliability, as well as role-based access control for security. Customers can also take advantage of new technology with ease through the open architecture thus eliminating the risk of vendor lock-in.
Customers can also take advantage of comprehensive licensing, pricing, support, and services packages which enable easy co-selling and OEM cloud technology bundling through the rPath Cloud Engine.
“Apps drive business, and if you don’t have a reliable method for deploying and maintaining them in the cloud, you are limiting your company’s ability to fully capitalize on the economics of this rapidly-growing business model,” says Michael Torto, chief executive officer for rPath. “The rPath Cloud Engine gives MSPs and private cloud vendors a simple way to differentiate, sell more and deliver long-term business value.”
The rPath Cloud Engine can be purchased directly through rPath’s global sales organization and its certified partners.
