CloudMunch Selected to Launch at Amazon Web Services Global Customer Conference

DevOps PaaS Goes Live With 30 Customers

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- (AWS re:Invent Conference) - CloudMunch Inc., a cloud-based orchestration engine for managing the entire application lifecycle, today announced it has been selected by Amazon Web Services to launch its DevOps Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas. Selected from hundreds of companies, CloudMunch will be one of eight start-ups to be featured at "Launched," a Live Stage environment where some of the most promising start-ups running on AWS have been invited to present and demonstrate their solution. CloudMunch CEO Pradeep Prabhu and CTO Prasanna Raghavendra will be presenting on Wednesday, November 28th.

Software developers today rely on a variety of cutting-edge cloud-based services to build, deploy, and manage their applications. Tools such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Chef, GitHub, Google Docs, JIRA, and New Relic have become indispensible to today's software teams -- especially for distributed teams. However, orchestrating all of these tools into a seamless workflow remains a significant challenge. With the General Availability release of the CloudMunch Platform, software development teams will now have a faster, easier way to Build-Test-Deploy-Run, and Manage applications in the cloud. CloudMunch is available in two editions: a Team Edition -- and with today's launch -- a new Developer Edition. The Developer Edition is designed for individual developers and provides a simple way for them to deploy their application and run it on AWS.

"As a cloud service broker, Jamcracker is constantly innovating to meet the demands of our clients," said Vinay Bhardwaj, Vice President, Engineering, Jamcracker Inc. "CloudMunch allows us to achieve continuous delivery and hence, faster releases."

"A key focus area for AWS is to help companies get started by offering a technology infrastructure with no capital expense and low pay-as-you-go pricing, and providing a technology platform with a broad functionality and global scale," said Ariel Kelman, Head of Worldwide Marketing, AWS. "This year, at the first AWS re:Invent conference, we have pushed 'getting started' to a new level by creating a dynamic, live stage environment for start-up companies to launch publicly for the first time. We're excited to have CloudMunch participate and show off their innovation on AWS."

Founded by former Infosys executives, CloudMunch launched its private beta in May 2012 and its service has since been adopted by over 30 customers ranging from product companies, IT service and SaaS providers, Web 2.0 businesses and innovative start-ups, demonstrating compelling user benefits such as faster time-to-market, improved quality and substantially lower costs. Customers include Beyond Square, Bizosys Technologies, Compassites, Evam Technologies, Jamcracker, LogicMatter, Tarento, Thinking Hut, and Wolken Software, to name a few.

"The reality of distributed teams coupled with a new generation of cloud-based tools means that delivering quality software on a continuous basis is becoming even more complex and fraught with risk. CloudMunch addresses this with a 'Hub in the Cloud' architecture, orchestrating the entire application lifecycle into a single workflow, enabling developers to use the tools they're already comfortable with," said Pradeep Prabhu, CEO and co-founder of CloudMunch. "CloudMunch provides in-context, real time analytics for the entire application lifecycle. Our mission is to let development teams focus on code and innovation, and in the process, raise the bar on software delivery speed and quality."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
