PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AppFog, the leading cloud-based platform-as-a-service (PaaS), today announced the addition of Blitz.io and Iron.io to its recently introduced add-on program for third-party service providers. Since the program’s conception in December, AppFog has built a strong foundation for its customers with current partners including New Relic, MongoLab, MailGun and MongoHQ. With the addition of Blitz.io and Iron.io, AppFog continues to offer its customers enhanced features to make it easy for developers to deploy and scale web-based applications through a single interface.
“At AppFog, we’re all about helping developers deploy applications with velocity and grace, and Blitz.io and Iron.io are two great examples of add-on partners who provide our customers with even more nuanced, cost-effective and time-saving developer platforms,” said Lucas Carlson, founder and CEO of AppFog. “With these new partners, the AppFog ecosystem continues to establish itself as an industry-leading solution for developers creating innovative cloud applications.”
Users have responded well to the add-on program, which makes it easy to manage accounts with third-party services through the AppFog interface. The intuitive interface displays partners’ services allowing the customer to easily integrate additional functionality into the applications they build on the AppFog platform. This is AppFog’s third installment to the program; the company plans to continue expanding its partner ecosystem adding new tools and solutions to the program throughout the year.
"We're very excited about making Blitz an AppFog 'Add-On'. This program is an outstanding way for developers to quickly access the best development solutions available from within AppFog," said Ajit Sancheti, co-founder, Mu Dynamics. "The integration of Blitz is another piece in this puzzle, enabling developers to quickly create rock solid applications without having to learn the nuances of load and performance testing."
"Cloud developers need fast deployment along with the ability to scale," says Chad Arimura, CEO and co-founder of Iron.io. “When it comes to message handling and background processing, most developers spend a lot of time creating and managing these components. IronMQ and IronWorker offload the challenges of maintaining what ends up being pretty complex systems into massively scalable services. Like AppFog, Iron.io is committed to removing complexity for developers, and we are excited to work together on this mission. Through our partnership, developers can spend far less time managing infrastructure and far more time on areas of their application that really matter."
