Cast Iron promises easier adoption of Amazon's cloud
Cloud and SaaS infrastructure provider Cast Iron Systems announced today that it has developed code to help enterprise developers move applications to Amazon's EC2 cloud. The company's own Cast Iron Cloud is also running on Amazon EC2.
"As the pioneer in utility cloud computing, Amazon is leading the movement to the Cloud," said Ken Comée, Cast Iron Systems' CEO, in a statement. "The Cast Iron Cloud on Amazon EC2 enables companies to migrate their data and integrate their enterprise applications rapidly, no matter where they are deployed, and immediately start realizing the benefits of Amazon Web Services."
"As enterprises increasingly look to Amazon Web Services for highly scalable, reliable and cost effective computing resources, services like Cast Iron migration and integration solutions provide an onramp to move enterprise data to Amazon EC2 and connect their enterprise applications regardless of where those applications reside," said Terry Wise, Amazon Web Services director of business development, in a statement.
Cast Iron's preconfigured templates eliminate the need for enterprise developers to write their own custom code, Cast Iron said.
