Verio and Servoy Announce Platform as a Service (PaaS) Offering
Provides full line of technology every ISV needs for Software as a Service (SaaS)
Verio manages the infrastructure part of the offering – the core of this combined offering – making it both easy and cost-effective for ISVs to scale from a few to hundreds of thousands of concurrent users. Now, ISVs don't need to invest in hardware, bandwidth, hosting facilities or even the management of the servers.
Servoy provides the development and deployment stack, ranging from the actual development tools to the application server and database connectivity. “With this unified offering, ISVs no longer need to endure the tedious process of selecting and managing a hosting partner,” said Jan Aleman, CEO, Servoy. “Verio's infrastructure has been tested by our team and provides the optimal platform for Servoy-based technology.”
Additionally, the cost is typically lower than other offerings on the market today with an on-demand infrastructure that allows ISVs to pay for the solution that best meets their needs. With the integrated stack, ISVs can move from development to production in less than a minute, and new versions of applications can be put in production with a single button click.
Servoy is a platform to help build and deploy applications much faster than traditional development environments. As a hybrid platform, applications can be deployed both in the new SaaS model, as well as in the classic on premises model from the same code base. Servoy recently introduced real-time load balancing and clustering in its fifth release – Servoy 5.0. This allows ISVs to scale up and down – depending on load – without bringing their application down.
"SaaS allows ISVs to easily take applications global,” added Aleman. “Hosting was still an issue as you can't host an application for international usage in a single location – the round-trip time due to the distance makes applications too slow. There is no technology that can solve the speed of light problem. The only solution is to have servers in at least three global locations for good international performance – U.S., Europe and Asia. Verio has data centers in each continent and this allows ISVs to scale over multiple data centers with a single vendor.”
