BOSTON, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

News Summary:

  • PaaSLane enables developers and QA professionals to assess and optimize applications for modernization and cloud readiness by analyzing Java and .NET source code.
  • PaaSLane 2.5 adds major capabilities to enable Java and .NET application developers to assess and optimize source code for cloud readiness and modernization more quickly, easily and efficiently.  Key new features of PaaSLane 2.5 include:
    • Local Profiling – keep source code secure with on-premise code analysis, eliminating the need to upload code to the cloud
    • Google Cloud Platform Support – optimize and migrate apps to the Google cloud, including App Engine and Compute Engine support
    • CI Integration – integrate with leading CI and build tools such as Jenkins to ensure continuous improvement and cloud governance of applications
    • Enhanced .NET Profiling – complete support for C# .NET applications across all supported cloud platforms
  • Customers also have more flexibility than ever before, with two editions of PaaSLane:
    • PaaSLane Assess™ offers one-time comprehensive assessments of applications for modernization and cloud readiness
    • PaaSLane Optimize™ is an annual subscription service that integrates with software development lifecycles to accelerate application modernization and cloud development projects

Cloud Technology Partners™, the leader in transforming businesses through cloud solutions, today announced the addition of major new features and functionality to PaaSLane™, a solution to assess and optimize Java and .NET applications for modernization and cloud readiness.  PaaSLane 2.5 enables Java and .NET developers and quality assurance (QA) professionals to assess and optimize applications more quickly, easily and efficiently; and enables businesses to reduce capital and operational expenses by simplifying applications and facilitating cloud adoption.

"The public cloud provides a highly desirable alternative for hosting applications.  The challenge lies in ensuring that applications are cloud ready," said Stephen Hendrick, Principal Analyst for Application Development and Deployment Research at ESG.  "Products such as PaaSLane that understand the unique features of public and private cloud environments and automate the evaluation of both Java and .Net applications for cloud readiness on these environments allow enterprises to clearly understand the impact of cloud migration.  This is an indispensable activity for any enterprise developing a comprehensive cloud strategy."

For today's enterprise business organization, it is no longer a question of 'if' they should modernize and move business critical applications to the cloud, but 'when'.   Tackling these challenges without knowledge, expertise, and automation can waste months of time and millions of dollars.  PaaSLane helps enterprise developers gain the knowledge needed to build cloud-ready applications, providing deep Cloud Technology Partners expertise around best practices and modern application architectures directly to developers.  Through automation, PaaSLane reduces risk, improves consistency, and accelerates modernization and cloud optimization projects.

"Developing modern cloud applications without PaaSLane is complex and error-prone," said Ben Grubin, Director of Product Management, PaaSLane.  "With PaaSLane, application developers and engineering leaders get deep visibility into the architectural improvements that are necessary before ever starting a project, as well as guidance on exactly how and why to make specific code changes.  Having PaaSLane in your software development process means avoiding the pain of outdated, expensive to maintain, and inflexible applications in the future."

PaaSLane 2.5 Enhancements:

  • Local Profiling – keep source code secure with on-premise code analysis, eliminating the need to upload code to the cloud
  • Google Cloud Platform Support – optimize and migrate apps to the Google cloud, including App Engine and Compute Engine support
