Morphlabs, a provider of enterprise cloud
architecture platforms, has simplified the process of building and
managing an internal cloud for enterprise environments -- enabling
companies to create their own private cloud infrastructure.
The Manhattan Beach, Calif. company today announced a significant upgrade to its flagship product, mCloud Controller. The enhanced version introduces Enterprise Cloud Architecture (ECA), a new approach that provides enterprises with immediate access to the building blocks and binding components of a fault tolerant, elastic, and highly automated platform.
Morphlabs also announced a partnership with Zend Technologies Ltd., whose Zend Server will be shipped as part of the mCloud Enterprise, said Winston Damarillo, CEO at Morphlabs.
mCloud Controller is a comprehensive cloud computing platform, delivered as an appliance
or virtual appliance, as well as providing open mCloud APIs (you can
manage the ECA cloud from an iPad, for example). To support the
leading platforms, mCloud Controller will have built-in ECA compliant
support for Java, Ruby on Rails, and PHP.
for enterprise private clouds, the Morph offering also provides direct
integration to mainstream middleware via standards-based connectors. It
also supports a plethora of VMs, from KVM to Xen, and and VMware, and
allows for others cluster managers to be used as well.
Morphlabs to seek to sell to both service providers and enterprises for
the compatible hybrids benefits. Of course, we're hearing the same from Citrix, VMware, Novell, HP, etc. It's a horse race out there for a de facto hybrid cloud standard, all right.
has been broadly adopted for the productivity gains it brings to Web
application development, and because it can provide the massive
scalability that e-commerce, social networking and media sites require,”
said Matt Elson,
vice president of business development at Zend. “Integrating Zend
Server into Morphlabs’ mCloud Controller enables IT organizations to
leverage the elasticity of cloud computing and automate the process of
deploying highly reliable PHP applications in the cloud.”
Key features of the mCloud Controller with ECA include:
environments from development to production to help users simplify
system configuration. Applications can grow as needed, while maintaining
a standardized infrastructure for ease of growth and replacement.
system administration with automated monitoring and self-healing out
of the box to avoid complicated system tuning. mCloud Controller also
comes with graphical tools for viewing system-wide performance.
resource provisioning, which frees the IT department from numerous
application provisioning requests. Without any system administration
skills, authorized users can start and stop computes and provision
applications as needed. Billing is also included within the system.
application management automates the process of deploying, monitoring
and backing-up applications. Users do not have to deal with
configuration files and server settings.
Controller v2.5 is available now in the United States, Japan and South
East Asia. For more information contact Morphlabs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
