@CloudExpo: Press Release

AppZero Automates Movement of Enterprise Apps to and from All Clouds

fastest, most simple way to move existing enterprise apps from one machine to another – leaving the OS behind

Advancing a clear vision for the Elastic Enterprise, application virtualization pioneer AppZero today announced availability of release 4.8 which delivers breakthrough functionality for moving applications, of particular interest to enterprise IT, cloud providers, and software vendors (ISVs).

New in release 4.8, AppZero accomplishes real-time migration and cloning of enterprise applications (Windows server and desktop) by simply running them on a target machine. This new technology builds a Virtual Application Appliance (VAA) automatically populating it with the components an application requires on demand as the application runs.  The result is an OS-free encapsulation of an application running on a new machine or cloud.

Packaged as a VAA, the application is ready for instant, and repeated movement to and from environments, with copy and run ease, without any lock-in. This approach is effective even when there is no-specific knowledge of the application - a consideration sure to be of interest to cloud providers faced with moving large numbers of applications. The company plans to hold a contest to name the ground-breaking capability.

"Corporate IT is ready to use the cloud for more than dev/test within a business-responsive, elastic context. They want to leverage hybrid and federated clouds for everyday workloads on-demand, and cloud providers are more than ready to welcome them.  The hitch has been the level of effort required to move enterprise applications to a cloud, and the lock-in that resulted," observed AppZero CEO, Greg O'Connor. "By extending our patented cloud container technology, we've made it possible for an existing application to be moved just by starting that application on the target machine."

AppZero customer, NeoGenesys Chief Architect, Luis Pérez Galván agrees, "This release moves AppZero's value proposition forward with strong advances in usability. The functionality, powered by unique intellectual property, positively impacts the profitability of our customer cloud migration engagements."

About AppZero
AppZero virtualizes server applications for portability and ease of distribution. AppZero's patented software packages Windows, Linux, and Solaris applications in OS-free Virtual Application Appliances (VAA) for rapid provisioning: across a network, on any server (physical or virtual), in the data center, hosted, or in the cloud, without change or lock-in. The result is applications that can easily move from one environment to another as quickly as business circumstances require. First to market virtualizing server applications, the company also offers a Windows desktop version.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
