SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - Appsecute, the cloud application management company, today announced a set of tools to allow developers and operations staff to collaborate on applications deployed to the cloud.
"Our Cloud Application Management Tools enable a new way of doing operations that is inclusive of developers, rather than shutting them out," said Tyler Power, founder and CTO of Appsecute.
A key part of this vision is the use of Platform as a Service. PaaS delivers big reductions in the time to market and cost of running cloud-based applications, by eliminating most of the operational work and providing a 'self-service' interface for developers.
But so far PaaS has mainly been used by developers working outside the IT department, creating so-called Rogue IT. "Attempting to deploy PaaS applications in production creates a big problem for IT departments," Power says. "The management tools needed are just not there yet, making it difficult to deal with security, audit, compliance and uptime requirements."
By combining PaaS with tools that facilitate collaboration and visibility, Appsecute builds a bridge between IT and the business. Developers have the capability to perform the operations role as 'devops' for some systems, while handing over responsibility to IT for more mission-critical production systems.
The Appsecute tools cover application deployment, configuration, scaling and monitoring, providing a single view across all the cloud platforms used by a team or an organization. Clouds, individual applications, services and access to cloud platforms can be shared by a team, within a company, or even shared with selected people in other companies to allow the idea of 'collaborative deployment.' Full role-based access control ensures people can be given the right level of access for the job they are doing.
Appsecute provides the tools to bridge the chasm between developers and operations, allowing people to collaborate and realize the potential of Platform as a Service for production applications.
Appsecute bridges the divide between developers and IT operations, delivering collaborative management tools for PaaS. Seed funded by a selection of influential Cloud thought-leaders, Appsecute is based in Christchurch, New Zealand. To learn more visit http://appsecute.com
