3Tera Announces AppStore at Cloud Computing Expo Europe

Quality, Scalable Components to be Offered and Supported by Trusted Vendors in Public and Private Clouds

Cloud Computing Conference & Expo Europe Gold Sponsor 3Tera announced today the introduction of the 3Tera AppStore - the first marketplace for cloud components where enterprise users, software vendors and datacenter experts can exchange production-ready, scalable and highly available cloud components on a pay-per-use basis.

3Tera's AppStore is a globally available portal offering enterprise-class, supported software stacks, packaged for use in public, private and hybrid AppLogic(R) cloud deployments.

The AppStore catalog spans all types of datacenter infrastructure elements and complete applications, from networking components (such as load balancers, firewalls, routers, traffic managers, content switches), server components (such as Web servers, directory servers, databases, application servers) and storage solutions, as well as application software stacks, management and monitoring tools.

"We've been enabling Cloud Computing for the past three years," said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc. "With the introduction of 3Tera's AppStore, we're enabling a community of software providers to make their products easily available in the Cloud and accessible on-demand."

Users of the 3Tera AppStore can find pre-configured, ready-to-use appliances to add to their 3Tera AppLogic catalogs provided by trusted software vendors. Many are free or offered on a trial basis, while others are offered on a pay-per-use basis. For ISVs, the AppStore provides a way to publish and distribute enterprise-class, production ready, cloud components and generate revenue every time users run them in public or private clouds powered by AppLogic. Datacenter architects and consultants can package and publish complete application infrastructures to the AppStore that are ready to run, complete with value-added capabilities such as clustered solutions, high-availability, disaster recovery, on-demand scalability or automated backups and security.

"Zeus is delighted to be partnering with 3Tera and making our solution available via the new AppStore portal," says Paul Brennan , CEO, Zeus Technology . "The cloud is already proving itself a viable and successful means of hosting Web applications, but not every application runs comfortably there. As the only pure software enterprise-class load balancer and traffic manager, Zeus has the unique advantage of sitting directly within the application stack. Zeus provides the high availability, on-demand scalability, flexibility and security that enterprise deployments need."

Initial AppStore partners include CohesiveFT, Layer 7 Technologies, SOASTA, Tap In Systems, and Zeus Technology.
