(The Hosting News) – iland™ Internet Solutions, the global cloud infrastructure provider and VMware Service Provider Partner of the Year Global 2012, today announced it has reached an agreement with VMware to support the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace™.
This newly created marketplace by VMware offers a wide variety of real world applications ranging from open source to commercial applications, contributed by leading developers, independent software vendors, independent hardware vendors, content providers and system integrators. The applications can be easily deployed, scaled, managed and customized using VMware vFabric™ Application Director™, a leading cloud application provisioning solution.
iland also announced it has selected VMware vFabric Application Director as the application modeling component for its next generation of hosted cloud infrastructure services. A cloud-enabled application provisioning solution, VMware vFabric Application Director features a self service deployment automation interface enabling users to model and provision any multi-tier complex application on private, public and hybrid clouds. This unique model-driven approach reduces initial deployment as well as ongoing application maintenance time from days to minutes leading to increased business agility and operational efficiency while maintaining IT control.
iland sees VMware vFabric Application Director as a critical component of the software defined datacenter, giving users enhanced flexibility by enabling them to deploy and update complex applications across multiple clouds and development environments. Not only will it help users to better compete in their markets, but the sharing of these applications through the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace can create a collaborative environment.
“As a VMware service provider partner, we are delighted to support the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace™. We believe it makes the sharing of innovation and ideas simple, enabling users to collaborate quickly and inexpensively while increasing the number and variety of leading-edge applications built using VMware vFabric™ Application Director™,” commented Dante Orsini, SVP Business Development, iland. “VMware vFabric Application Director will allow us to work closely with ISV partners looking to cloud-enable their applications at a much faster rate. In addition, this advanced technology will enable them to provision, maintain and update applications into any cloud, not just a VMware-based cloud”.
