|AUSTIN, Texas — June 13, 2011 VaraLogix®, the leader of Web Application Deployment solutions, today announced a partnership with Electric Cloud®, the development cloud company. VaraLogix Q® directly integrates with ElectricCommander, to automate the end-to-end build-test-deploy process to any environment - physical, virtual or cloud. |
VaraLogix Q provides the vital safety net for automated deployment and rollback of business critical Web applications, removing risk and uncertainty from the deployment process. ElectricCommander users now have the power of VaraLogix Q for perfect Web application deployment to any production environment from within ElectricCommander, using physical, virtual or cloud resources. VaraLogix Q extends the built in deployment workflow capabilities of ElectricCommander to provide support for Web application infrastructure environments including JBoss, WebSphere, WebLogic, IIS, Tomcat, Apache, Oracle, MySql, MS SQL and more. Q automatically enforces promotion models to support business policy and enables IT operations, development, QA and production teams to seamlessly automate real and virtual environments as part of a standardized, repeatable and audit-ready way to execute Web application deployment.
VaraLogix Q archives all application components, including ElectricCommander build artifacts, images, media files, static content and database schema, and manages them in a single, versioned package throughout the deployment lifecycle. This ensures the correct versions of application components and their resource dependencies are always intact, secure, correctly promoted and deployed as they advance from development to QA and through to production with complete traceability. If a rollback is required, all stored versions of any package are instantly available for redeployment. "We're excited to join forces with VaraLogix to bring this powerful, combined solution to Electric Cloud customers," said Mike Maciag, CEO at Electric Cloud. "This integration bridges the gap between development operations and production for teams working on physical, virtual or cloud infrastructure, ultimately decreasing time to market, and reducing errors and costs." VaraLogix Q provides proven business value in a secure, easy-to-use, scalable solution:
* Captures, documents and executes process knowledge within a flexible automation framework that is completely open and cloud ready.
* Delivers real-time process visibility across geographic boundaries — you know exactly who did what, when and why.
* Provides Active Directory/LDAP role-based security, real-time results, email notifications, alerts and management sign offs.
* Manages topology and enforces promotion models to support business policies.
* Leverages existing processes, scripts, and tools with quick implementation.
"Our technology partnership with Electric Cloud is a natural fit. We've essentially married Electric Cloud's best-of-breed build-test-deploy automation solution with error-free Web application deployment to any environment," said Tim Wall, VaraLogix CEO. "It's a great win for both organizations and, most importantly, for our mutual customers."
