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."

@ThingsExpo Stories
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry – resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his general session at 17th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, an IBM Company, broke down what we have to work with, discussed the benefits and pitfalls and how we can best use them to design hosted applications.
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
In his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bruce Swann, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Adobe Campaign, explored the key ingredients of cross-channel marketing in a digital world. Learn how the Adobe Marketing Cloud can help marketers embrace opportunities for personalized, relevant and real-time customer engagement across offline (direct mail, point of sale, call center) and digital (email, website, SMS, mobile apps, social networks, connected objects).
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
