For the Application Developer
What if you could access cloud services on-demand without waiting weeks to have an application infrastructure to be provisioned for your project? And what if you never had to worry about installing and configuring application infrastructure components, such as web servers, application servers, load balancers, etc. and could just focus on what you do best?
Automate Application Deployment of Mission-Critical Apps
A world class organization in the travel and hospitality business was looking for a new deployment model for an existing e-commerce application. More specifically, their application development team was spinning up multiple instances of the same applications manually to different customers, one instance at a time, so they were looking to automate the deployment to cut the time-to-deployment.
Because their e-commerce application was mission-critical, application isolation was also a critical requirement, as the performance of one instance has to be completely independent – and therefore isolated from any other instances. Last but not least, the new deployment platform had to run on their existing private cloud powered by Citrix CloudPlatform.
Boosting App Dev With CumuLogic Elastic WebStack/PaaS
Because of the tight integration with Citrix CloudPlatform and a PaaS architecture that supports application isolation, CumuLogic Elastic WebStack/Platform-as-a-Service was a natural fit. Not only did CumuLogic PaaS support the containers needed by the existing e-commerce application, but the CumuLogic engineering team was able to add support for different flavors of the database and message queue engine in record time to ensure the seamless roll out of the new deployment model without any code re-writes. By using CumuLogic PaaS, DBaaS and Message Queue Service, the app dev team is now rolling out the same application automatically to multiple customers, cutting down the deployment time from 8 weeks to a few hours. And more importantly, they’re able to meet the application isolation requirements of a mission critical e-commerce application.
With its tight integration to existing Infrastructure-as-a-Service clouds, such as Apache CloudStack, Citrix CloudPlatform, Eucalyptus, OpenStack and vCloud, and its support for multiple middleware components, CumuLogic Cloud Services Platform empowers app dev teams to do what they do best – that is deliver high quality applications, while the platform takes care of all the tasks required to deploy mission critical applications in a secure, efficient, and automated fashion.
