Morph Labs Virtualizes SaaS Infrastructure with Morph AppSpace Subscriptions
Virtual Application Infrastructure Allows Software Vendors to Simplify the Development, Delivery and Management of SaaS
Apr. 3, 2008 03:15 PM
Morph Labs announced the availability of a virtual
application infrastructure subscription. The service will allow independent software
vendors (ISVs) and entrepreneurs to simplify the deployment, delivery, and
management of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications while reducing upfront
investment costs and speeding time to market.
Each Morph AppSpace runs within the Morph Application
Platform that utilizes Amazon Web Services, including the Amazon Elastic
Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
By utilizing on-demand computing resources and storage from Amazon EC2 and S3,
Morph Labs is able to provision an enterprise quality elastic application
environment. Each application environment can be enlarged or reduced in
real-time to meet user needs, this flexibility eliminates the practice of over
provisioning the application environment just to service peak periods.
The Morph Application Platform enables deployment, delivery
and management of web applications. The platform is a secure enterprise-grade
environment that enables businesses to increase productivity and frees developers
from the time required to manage and scale an application. The Morph
Application Platform brings together the best of open source technologies and
integrates them along with Morph's own technology to provide a seamless end to
end virtualized infrastructure for applications. Developers and ISVs can
quickly run Software as a Service (SaaS) applications on a Morph AppSpace, and
move from sign-up to deployment within minutes.
"Morph utilizes the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
for resizable compute capacity infrastructure to provide a scale for its
users," said Steve Rabuchin, Director of Developer Relations for Amazon
Web Services. "Applications can be delivered and scaled to millions of
users within minutes".
David Abramowski, CEO of Morph Labs said, "Software as
a Service is a growing trend as companies look to cut big budget IT costs and
take advantage of on-demand applications. Lack of data-center space, power
restrictions and the cost of acquiring and managing hardware have opened the
door to outsourcing the application environment. Morph Labs is leading the
charge in providing those capabilities to companies big or small.”
