Sunnyvale, Calif. — January 25, 2011 Electric Cloud®, the private development cloud company, today announced a partnership with Eucalyptus Systems and rPath to power private development clouds. Electric Cloud also announced the launch of ElectricCommander 3.8, the first application to bridge the gap between private cloud infrastructure and software development. ElectricCommander 3.8 streamlines the development process and helps companies get the most out of their private clouds by bringing self-service, manageability and elasticity to the development team.
"As we empower enterprises to take full advantage of the private cloud for software development the partnership with Eucalyptus Systems and rPath is a natural one. We can now provide our joint customers with seamless integration between best in breed private cloud infrastructure and what software development needs to do their job more effectively," said Electric Cloud CEO Mike Maciag. "These products taken together provide a great solution for development on the private cloud."
Eucalyptus Systems, creator of the Eucalyptus private cloud platform, transforms compute resources into secure, massively scalable private and hybrid clouds. ElectricCommander interfaces directly with Eucalyptus to automatically provide development with the compute resources they need whether they are inside or outside the firewall.
"Electric Cloud's products take a private cloud powered by Eucalyptus to the next level," said Matt Reid, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Eucalyptus Systems. "The automation and reporting that Electric Cloud provides, paired with the elasticity, security and scalability of a private cloud running Eucalyptus, gives enterprises unprecedented control, visibility and efficiency in the software development cycle."
rPath, the service factory for on-demand IT, automates software system construction, deployment and maintenance on private and hybrid clouds. ElectricCommander now integrates with rPath to provide fully automated software development on the private cloud. With Electric Cloud and rPath, enterprise software development can automatically define their development process and workflows, automatically construct the systems required to run them in the private cloud and execute them with the touch of a button.
"Private development clouds are the logical starting point for many enterprise cloud initiatives, said Jake Sorofman, rPath chief marketing officer. "This combination represents a powerful solution for enabling speed, control and elasticity to accelerate application innovation and delivery. We're pleased to be working with Electric Cloud and Eucalyptus on what we see as an important pattern for enterprise cloud adoption."
ElectricCommander 3.8, available now, connects the machines, tools, and processes already in place and creates a private development cloud where developers find precisely the services and resources they need. With the push of a button, any developer can harness the power of the private cloud and get as many machines as they need to run compute intensive tasks such as build, test and deploy.
