Citrix Backs CumuLogic

Technology is said to simplify development, deployment & runtime management of mobile, web & enterprise Java app in the cloud

Citrix has put an undisclosed amount of money in CumuLogic, the angel-backed private Java Platform-as-a-Service start-up founded last year by Sun Microsystems veterans with Java's father James Gosling as an advisor.

Citrix took the money out of its Citrix Startup Accelerator fund, which invests in early stage start-ups.

By transforming virtualized environments and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds into a high-value PaaS cloud, CumuLogic technology is said to simplify the development, deployment and runtime management of mobile, web and enterprise Java applications in public, private and hybrid clouds.

Its dynamically scalable application framework is supposed to integrate with VMware, OpenStack, Eucalyptus, HP's OpenStack-based Cloud Services, Citrix' CloudStack-based CloudPlatform and, of course, Amazon.

Citrix said it's supporting CumuLogic because it can bridge traditional datacenters and clouds at the application level and let enterprises and cloud providers begin deploying enterprise-class applications in cloud environments "without waiting for all the development standards to evolve and mature."

The start-up is expected to support Windows and .NET apps on top of its platform later this year.

The widgetry is used either privately or through a service provider.
