Cloud Computing Brings Demand For Elastic Application Platforms

EAPs Ease Delivery Of Elastic Apps, Smoothing A Path To Cloud's Benefits

April 26, 2011


Why Read This Report

Promises that cloud computing can save money and reduce time-to-market by automatically scaling applications (either up or down) oversimplify what it takes to develop application architectures to achieve these benefits of elastic scaling. Few of today's business applications are designed for elastic scaling, and most of those few involve complex coding unfamiliar to most enterprise developers. A new generation of application platforms for elastic applications is arriving to help remove this barrier to realizing cloud's benefits. Elastic application platforms will reduce the skill required to design, deliver, and manage elastic applications, making automatic scaling of cloud available to all shops. Get a jump on the competition by starting now to understand elastic platforms and their potential for your organization.
