Virtualisation company GigaSpaces has launched Cloudify, a tool designed to help businesses move applications from on-premise servers to cloud computing platforms.
Cloudify functions as a platform- and middleware stack-neutral system for porting software to cloud services, and will integrate database information and middleware services.
GigaSpaces claimed that the system allows companies to move applications to the cloud without the need for cloud vendor or a complicated migration process. The company argued that competing platforms such as VMware require customers to move applications to a proprietary cloud platform.
"Cloudify enables businesses to move applications to the cloud with no code change and minimal learning curve, meaning that they can continue to develop in their traditional environment and leverage existing skills and assets, while gaining the cost and agility benefits of deploying to the cloud," said GigaSpaces chief technology officer Nati Shalom.
"We also enable our customers to survive a complete datacentre failure, and to burst into the cloud at peak loads, by making replicas of the data available across multiple datacentres and availability zones."
Cloudify is currently offered as a public beta, and general availability is slated for December. The company plans to release free and premium versions of the tool.
