CloudMunch Selected to Launch at Amazon Web Services Global Customer Conference

DevOps PaaS Goes Live With 30 Customers

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- (AWS re:Invent Conference) - CloudMunch Inc., a cloud-based orchestration engine for managing the entire application lifecycle, today announced it has been selected by Amazon Web Services to launch its DevOps Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas. Selected from hundreds of companies, CloudMunch will be one of eight start-ups to be featured at "Launched," a Live Stage environment where some of the most promising start-ups running on AWS have been invited to present and demonstrate their solution. CloudMunch CEO Pradeep Prabhu and CTO Prasanna Raghavendra will be presenting on Wednesday, November 28th.

Software developers today rely on a variety of cutting-edge cloud-based services to build, deploy, and manage their applications. Tools such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Chef, GitHub, Google Docs, JIRA, and New Relic have become indispensible to today's software teams -- especially for distributed teams. However, orchestrating all of these tools into a seamless workflow remains a significant challenge. With the General Availability release of the CloudMunch Platform, software development teams will now have a faster, easier way to Build-Test-Deploy-Run, and Manage applications in the cloud. CloudMunch is available in two editions: a Team Edition -- and with today's launch -- a new Developer Edition. The Developer Edition is designed for individual developers and provides a simple way for them to deploy their application and run it on AWS.

"As a cloud service broker, Jamcracker is constantly innovating to meet the demands of our clients," said Vinay Bhardwaj, Vice President, Engineering, Jamcracker Inc. "CloudMunch allows us to achieve continuous delivery and hence, faster releases."

"A key focus area for AWS is to help companies get started by offering a technology infrastructure with no capital expense and low pay-as-you-go pricing, and providing a technology platform with a broad functionality and global scale," said Ariel Kelman, Head of Worldwide Marketing, AWS. "This year, at the first AWS re:Invent conference, we have pushed 'getting started' to a new level by creating a dynamic, live stage environment for start-up companies to launch publicly for the first time. We're excited to have CloudMunch participate and show off their innovation on AWS."

Founded by former Infosys executives, CloudMunch launched its private beta in May 2012 and its service has since been adopted by over 30 customers ranging from product companies, IT service and SaaS providers, Web 2.0 businesses and innovative start-ups, demonstrating compelling user benefits such as faster time-to-market, improved quality and substantially lower costs. Customers include Beyond Square, Bizosys Technologies, Compassites, Evam Technologies, Jamcracker, LogicMatter, Tarento, Thinking Hut, and Wolken Software, to name a few.

"The reality of distributed teams coupled with a new generation of cloud-based tools means that delivering quality software on a continuous basis is becoming even more complex and fraught with risk. CloudMunch addresses this with a 'Hub in the Cloud' architecture, orchestrating the entire application lifecycle into a single workflow, enabling developers to use the tools they're already comfortable with," said Pradeep Prabhu, CEO and co-founder of CloudMunch. "CloudMunch provides in-context, real time analytics for the entire application lifecycle. Our mission is to let development teams focus on code and innovation, and in the process, raise the bar on software delivery speed and quality."

The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D

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.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software. They hope to capture value from emerging technologies such as IoT, SDN, and AI. Ultimately, irrespective of the vertical, it is about deriving value from independent software applications participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridhar, founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, discussed how given the magnitude of today's application ...
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
