James Gosling Praises PaaS Platform
Ex-Sun Employees and CumuLogic Launch PaaS Beta
CumuLogic, whose Technical Advisory Board consists of ex-Sun Microsystems employees, including James Gosling, commonly referred to as the "father of Java," and former CIO Bill Vass, have announced that the CumuLogic PaaS controller for private clouds is now available. This beta supports IaaS clouds like VMware vSphere, Cloud.com's Cloudstack and Eucalyptus, with support for OpenStack planned for the next release.
CumuLogic provides solutions for building and managing Platform-as-a-Service on public, private and hybrid clouds. Speaking about the platform, James Gosling said:
"Today's clouds are complex and all different. There is almost no interoperability between cloud provider and between public and private clouds. I'm enthusiastic about CumuLogic's PaaS cloud management solution as it utilizes the higher levels of abstraction inherent in the PaaS model to reduce the complexity of cloud management, provides targeted facilities for both developers and management, and erases the distinctions between the various clouds enabling transparent interoperability."
Developers can sign up for the beta now.
