MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Morphlabs, the leading enabler of enterprise cloud architecture platforms, today announced a significant upgrade to its flagship product, mCloud™ Controller. The enhanced version introduces Enterprise Cloud Architecture (ECA), a new approach that simplifies the process of building and managing an internal cloud for enterprise environments — enabling companies to create their own private cloud infrastructure. Morphlabs also announced a partnership with Zend Technologies Ltd., whose Zend Server® will be shipped as part of the mCloud Enterprise.
“Implementing ECA provides our customers a pre-integrated framework to manage virtualized resources, the middleware stack and the applications that run on the cloud environment.”
Morphlabs’ mCloud Controller is a comprehensive cloud computing platform, delivered as an appliance, which converts commodity hardware into a cloud environment. Now incorporating ECA, mCloud Controller 2.5 provides enterprises with immediate access to the building blocks and binding components of a fault tolerant, elastic and highly automated platform. It runs highly reliable applications and services while addressing the industry-wide need for a definitive cloud architecture for the enterprise. To support the leading platforms, mCloud Controller will have built-in ECA compliant support for Java, Ruby on Rails and PHP.
“PHP has been broadly adopted for the productivity gains it brings to Web application development, and because it can provide the massive scalability that e-commerce, social networking and media sites require,” said Matt Elson, vice president of business development at Zend. “Integrating Zend Server into Morphlabs’ mCloud Controller enables IT organizations to leverage the elasticity of cloud computing and automate the process of deploying highly reliable PHP applications in the cloud.”
Key features of the mCloud Controller with ECA include:
Cloud computing presents a viable option for IT organizations seeking to reduce the complexity within their IT environments, either by means of converged systems that arrive pre-integrated and ready to use (for private clouds) or systems that are offsite entirely (public cloud). International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that server hardware revenue for public cloud computing will grow from $582 million in 2009 to $718 million in 2014. Server revenue for the larger private cloud market will grow from $2.6 billion to $5.7 billion in the same time period — more than twice the size. (IDC Press Release, Cloud Computing to Drive $6.4 Billion in Server Hardware Spending by 2014, According to IDC, June 30, 2010.)
“The mCloud Controller 2.5 is designed to enable IT organizations to rapidly deploy Enterprise Private Clouds,” said Winston Damarillo, CEO of Morphlabs. “Implementing ECA provides our customers a pre-integrated framework to manage virtualized resources, the middleware stack and the applications that run on the cloud environment.”
The mCloud Controller 2.5 is available now in the United States, Japan and South East Asia. For pricing information, or to begin using the mCloud Controller, please contact Morphlabs at 310-437-8001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
