Cloud Technology Partners™, the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced the general availability (GA) of PaaSLane™, the first and only software solution that analyzes Java and .NET application source code to uncover problems that could impact cloud readiness, and accelerates the migration of applications to public or private clouds.  PaaSLane assesses existing Java and .NET apps quickly; finding coding errors, hardcoded dependencies, security issues, scalability problems, and other factors, which could quickly derail an application migration project.  By reducing the need for manual code reviews, which are labor intensive and time consuming, PaaSLane can shorten migration times by months and eliminate hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost.

PaaSLane enables its users to:

  • Rapidly assess application source code to determine cloud readiness, identifying quick wins that can be migrated immediately and prioritizing scarce resources
  • Accelerate cloud migrations and the development of cloud-native software by integrating into the software development lifecycle and tracking progress towards cloud readiness
  • Continuously optimize applications for evolving cloud platforms by checking every build for cloud readiness and delivering real-time intelligence on changes in major cloud platforms

PaaSLane includes complete support for Java and C# .NET, and assesses cloud readiness for all major private and public cloud platforms.  Building on support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced last year (http://www.cloudtp.com/?announcements=cloud-technology-partners-announces-paaslane-for-aws), PaaSLane 2.0 includes support for other leading cloud platforms including Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, Pivotal CloudFoundry, and Apprenda.  Additional new features with this GA release include: a redesigned reporting interface, live drill-down into alert detail, interactive charting, and new options for delivering both management-level and detail reports in PDF and Excel formats.

The use of cloud for enterprise workloads is skyrocketing, driving the need for solutions that reduce the risk and cost of migrating applications to the cloud, and that is where PaaSLane shines," said Ben Grubin, Director of Product Management at Cloud Technology Partners. "By using PaaSLane to find and fix problems in advance, companies can ensure migrations are successful."

PaaSLane is also gaining traction with systems integrators, who are challenged to deliver cloud-ready applications in an environment where cloud platforms are changing on a daily basis. 

"We leverage PaaSLane to accelerate our time to market for cloud-ready applications," said Deborah Mounts, Software Engineering Director at Foliage, a leading provider of product consulting and development services.  "PaaSLane has proven to be a valuable, time-saving addition to our toolset during consulting engagements.  We look forward to realizing similar productivity gains in our application development and migration processes, where PaaSLane can help us optimize our applications for constantly evolving cloud environments."

Recent IDC cloud research shows that spending on public IT cloud services is expected to be more than $107 billion in 2017, and growing at five times that of the industry overall, according to the IDC Worldwide and Regional Public IT Cloud Services 2013-2017 Forecast (Doc #242464, August 2013).

"For IDC, a prevailing question we are now hearing from clients is not whether to move applications to the public cloud, but what should be moved first," said Robert Mahowald, Program Vice President, SaaS and Cloud Services at IDC.  "The answer of course is not simple.  Migrating from existing on-premise platforms to a cloud-based platform has to be carefully planned to avoid additional complexity and risk, but it often can provide value to make it well worth the effort."  He continued, "Solutions like PaaSLane help automate the process and eliminate guesswork. They can also provide IT leaders with an objective measure of cloud "readiness" across application portfolios, and give the development team a roadmap to start fixing issues immediately."

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT.

There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
