rPath to Preview New Cloud Application Engine at VMworld

Cloud-scale application delivery solution offers speed, reliability and consistency to private and hybrid clouds

VMworld 2011

RALEIGH, N.C. and LAS VEGAS--()--rPath, the application engine provider for the private cloud, today announced that it will show a technology preview of its new cloud application engine, rPath Cloud Engine, in booth #226 at VMworld 2011, from August 29 – September 1 in Las Vegas. Built on the proven rPath X6 platform, rPath Cloud Engine empowers enterprise organizations and managed service providers with the ability to automate application management for the private cloud with consistency, reliability and speed – all with the push of a button.

“While applications are driving the race to the private cloud, many cloud builders are focused on building out their infrastructure instead of making their applications work,” says Brett Adam, CTO of rPath. “Cloud builders deploying apps manually are putting their organizations at risk for erroneous updates and costly service bottlenecks. At VMworld, we’ll give attendees a sneak preview of rPath Cloud Engine, a new automation engine that eliminates these risks.”

Technology Preview

During the show, see rPath tackle this issue head-on in a demonstration of the rPath Cloud Engine’s powerful application automation integrated with a Cisco-based cloud automation stack. This demo illustrates a common use case that all private cloud providers face – seamlessly integrating self-service portals, orchestration, and application delivery automation.

rPath Cloud Engine provides end-to-end application management, including full automation of system construction and image generation. This automated approach to application delivery seamlessly fits into any cloud technology ecosystem, helping cloud providers, builders and buyers alike ensure that their cloud delivers applications with consistency, reliability and speed. rPath works with partners to embed rPath Cloud Engine into private cloud stacks from cloud technology vendors as well as into private and hybrid cloud offerings from service providers.

Lightning Talks: “Cloud Applications: The Seven Deadly Sins”

Also at the show, rPath’s Brett Adam will host Cisco’s Rodrigo Flores, technical architect in the IAS group, for a series of lightning talks that will address the “Seven Deadly Sins” of cloud application management. Attendees will learn how to make automation a core component of their cloud strategy to ensure fast, accurate and scalable application deployments, among other key strategies.
