Work on code, not management.
AppFog, CenturyLink's Public Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), enables developers to focus on writing great applications, without having to worry about managing the underlying infrastructure. The result is increased agility and productivity, more efficient use of resources, and a simplified deployment and management experience.
Based on Cloud Foundry v1, AppFog is Cloud Foundry Core compatible which means that you can confidently migrate your CFv1 applications from any other Cloud Foundry provider.
AppFog supports many frameworks and services — choose the right technologies for your apps, including Ruby on Rails, Spring, Grails, Django, and more.
Application services include MySQL, PostgresSQL, MongoDB, RabbitMQ and Redis.
AppFog was designed for Developers, by Developers. It's rich, user-friendly UI and command-line interface allow you get to get things done quickly and focus on building world-class apps instead of configuring servers.
Specify either CenturyLink Cloud or Amazon Web Services deployment as targets.
For PHP, Java, Ruby, Python, and Node.js.
The AppFog Platform-as-a-Service Developer-focused ecosystem facilitates agile development and removes barriers that slow innovation. It is ideal for many common enterprise workloads. Consider these three cases:
Enterprise data centers are bursting with key web applications that were custom built for each business unit. Many of these apps sit on underutilized, dedicated hardware that wastes space and money. By moving these applications to Platform-as-a-Service, customers can take advantage of multi-tenancy while not sacrificing the uptime or reliability of these critical applications.
In addition to migrating existing business applications, enterprises are increasingly looking to cloud services to host new, modern web applications. These services encourage a rapid, agile delivery of web applications. Specifically, AppFog gives developers their choice of programming language and framework to use.
As the speed of business continues to increase, the pressure is on IT departments to deliver software even faster. Traditional means of deploying software to dedicated servers makes it difficult to rapidly prototype solutions or quickly publish temporary or seasonal web applications. Applications can be deployed to AppFog in seconds and inherently have the enterprise-grade support needed for reliable, global applications that may be online for months or years.
Each AppFog applications has unique URL, which can be mapped to a custom domain, enabling AppFog to host numerous public-facing web properties that are dispersed throughout enterprise IT departments. Thanks to its support for the most popular web application frameworks, AppFog can host a diverse range of public websites while providing the deep performance analytics that enterprise customers demand.
