(The Hosting News) – Zunicore (http://www.zunicore.com), the professional-grade cloud from PEER 1 Hosting, has teamed with Standing Cloud (http://www.standingcloud.com), a leading provider of cloud-based application management solutions, to deliver Zunicore customers a vastly simplified way to deploy and manage applications in the cloud.
The new offering, Standing Cloud powered by Zunicore, leverages Zunicore’s infrastructure-as-a-service capabilities to provide business users with customized hosting and cloud-based application services that match their needs, with full control over server size, bandwidth usage and backup options, as well as the control, flexibility and reliability they need to run business applications. The new offering is available today.
Standing Cloud’s Application Storefront enables cloud service providers like Zunicore to offer their customers instant access to more than 100 open-source and commercial apps – including such popular CRM and CMS software as WordPress, Drupal, SugarCRM, and others – all configured to deploy automatically, quickly and reliably in the cloud, and seamlessly integrated with their infrastructure. Once an application is deployed, Standing Cloud’s application lifecycle management capabilities give business users a point-and-click interface for ongoing management, including monitoring, scaling, back-ups, upgrades, auto-restore and more.
“With Standing Cloud, we can offer our customers a one-stop hosting, installation and management option. Now any user, with or without technical abilities, can easily find and use applications on Zunicore. That’s an important benefit for our business customers,” said Greg Rusu, General Manager, Zunicore. “Standing Cloud and Zunicore share the view that the cloud should be flexible, scalable, accessible and affordable; this partnership delivers on that promise.”
“Standing Cloud is very pleased to team with Zunicore as it builds out world-class cloud services for business users, who represent a growing – and largely untapped – customer base for the cloud,” said David J. Jilk, CEO of Standing Cloud. “Zunicore’s focus on business users is a great match for what we do, and we’re excited to make our service available to their customers.”
