Cloud computing has started making a profound impact on the application development. Mobile and web based application development companies have significantly benefited by developing and rolling out their applications on clouds. But application downtimes and development process can delay the lab to market cycle. 80% of downtime of mission critical applications is caused by miscommunications about the release change. Similarly 45 to 65 percent of the issues are introduced during the requirements and design phase of the software development. goPaddle addresses these two problems through improved collaboration between the teams and helps to identify issues early in the release cycle through container based shift left approach. Due platform neutrality, goPaddle offers Developers and IT teams the flexibility to use different operating systems and different cloud platforms across the software release cycle.
“Container technology adds a new dimension of portability in Software release cycles. Development and IT teams now have a choice of using either Infrastructure or Platform Clouds across the release cycle without worrying about application portability issues. With goPaddle, companies can take advantage of light weight and portable software release management on cloud,” says Vinothini Raju, Founder & CEO at Bluemeric.
While model-driven PaaS and container adoption is on the raise, most of the applications still run on Infrastructure clouds compared to platform clouds. A solution like goPaddle connects these technologies with the existing application deployments. This announcement came following Red Hat’s OpenShift Enterprise 3 announcement last week. goPaddle currently integrates with Open source version of Openshift v3 PaaS, Kubernetes and with other infrastructure clouds like AWS and Google Cloud.
Using goPaddle, cloud based application development companies can now speed up their software development process. They can do forward and reverse engineering of a multi-tier application in a similar fashion. In addition to this agile application delivery, they can also achieve application portability across different cloud platforms.
“We have been closely following the technology trends in the portability space and we have found Docker to be a game changer in the container management space. We wanted to contribute to the Docker adoption and have also released open source tools like DockYard to manage Docker containers. Based on our DevOps consulting experiences, we have seen how Docker can simplify application release management. Our technical expertise in Docker and clustering platforms like Kubernetes has helped us develop a solution like goPaddle”, says Giragadurai Vallirajan, CTO at Bluemeric.
goPaddle is available as a closed source SaaS application and is currently in public beta. It is available to customers as a free subscription with limited licenses for the next 3 months.
Based in India, Bluemeric has establishment in US as well to have more closer interaction with the Developer community in US, bridging the container technology space between India and US.
