CloudBees has announced that customers can now run the company’s Java-based platform as a service (PaaS) in their own data centers, in Amazon’s public cloud, on a hosting provider’s servers, or on any combination of those. Through its new AnyCloud service, the company will enable private or hybrid cloud computing environments utilizing its PaaS technology.
The company hopes these new services will appeal to enterprises that are interested in cloud development, but wary of the public cloud. “We deliver the platform as a service whether it runs on public cloud, datacenter or hosted data center — you do not install anything. We architected it in a way where you identify the resources in your data center or hosted provider but you use us to deploy and manage it,” explained CloudBees’ Steve Harris.
