AppFog Unveils Add-On Program for Developers

PaaS solution supports all major development languages, introduces new portal to allow developers to purchase services from multiple vendors

PORTLAND, Ore.--()--AppFog, the leading cloud-based PaaS, today announced a new add-on program for third-party service providers. Through this program, PHP Fog, AppFog’s flagship service, will provision the accounts purchased by developers through a single interface and display partner information for the customer to easily integrate additional functionality from these third-party services into the applications they build on the AppFog platform. This will make it easier still for developers to deploy and scale web based applications without having to become part-time IT support on the side. Partners include MongoLab and New Relic.

"Our goal is to provide the best, most comprehensive user experience for developers," said Lucas Carlson, founder and CEO of AppFog. "We are partnering with a number of industry-leading ecosystem offerings through this new program, starting with these three, and expect the program to significantly increase the options available through the AppFog interface for developers."

AppFog offers a complete solution providing reliability, ease of use, scalability and speed for developers. The platform includes infrastructure that automates scalability and makes deployment and management of applications easy, enabling application developers to rapidly create and seamlessly scale applications. The AppFog service supports tens of thousands of application developers who have collectively created and deployed approximately tens of thousands of applications using its platform. The company has closely collaborated with thousands of developers to understand their unique pain points and build an infrastructure that automates scalability and makes the deployment and management of applications easy. The company is known for its rock-solid service and support, backed by its active developer community.

Ben Wen, vice president of marketing and sales at MongoLab: "MongoLab is delighted to offer hosted MongoDB to the AppFog community. MongoLab's focus on ease of use and solid operations mean that our customers' precious engineering time is spent on productive coding and not on worrying about their data. Our backup and monitoring services, data manipulation tools and mad-dog support allow customers to feel at ease. With the astounding growth of MongoDB in the PHP world and beyond, our scalable MongoDB in the cloud is a beautiful complement to AppFog's platform."

Bill Lapcevic, vice president of business development at New Relic: “We are pleased to be a part of AppFog's add-on program, and see their breadth of language support to be a key differentiator. Our web application performance tool gives developers deep, 24x7 visibility from the end user experience all the way to a line of application code. This is a crucial capability for developers using AppFog for deploying apps to the cloud. Additionally, through our close partnership, we are pleased to provide New Relic to AppFog customers at no charge."
