Morph AppSpace Extends Cloud-Based Platform as a Service to Support Java and Grails, from Just a Dollar a Day

- Drives down cost of web-based application deployment, encourages innovation and offers broadest 'platform as a service' off

Morph Labs, the leading provider of Platform as a Service (PaaS) that leverages virtual infrastructure and open source technologies, has added capabilities to allow Java and Grails applications to be deployed, delivered and managed in its end-to-end platform as a service, Morph AppSpace.

Available to developers around the globe that want a managed environment for web-based applications, the new capabilities for Java and Grails add to Morph’s current offering for Ruby on Rails.

Each Morph AppSpace subscription is an end-to-end deployment, delivery and management system for web applications that combines technology, services and people into a low-cost managed service. Morph AppSpace enables Independent Software Vendors to dramatically reduce their startup costs of bringing a new Software as a Service (SaaS) application to market.

With subscriptions available from $1/day, Morph AppSpace runs an application and handles all system administration. It allows developers to side-step time-consuming challenges such as hosting setups and deployment tasks so they may focus on innovation and the creation of new web-based applications.

With a commitment to open source technologies, Morph Labs provides independent software vendors (ISVs) with a streamlined service to deliver enterprise quality applications to their customer base for a low cost, and gives freelance and independent developers a cost-effective way to launch new applications to the market.

Beyond the additional development language support, Morph Labs has also added a collection of new features requested by developers, including:

  • MySQL database option enabling existing applications to easily move into a Morph AppSpace subscription without modifications.
  • Web-based database administrators console allowing developers to directly access, manage, upload and download data to their own databases.
  • Job scheduler allowing developers to run timed jobs across the distributed environment, as well as pre-integrated web statistics and performance information.

“From our interactions with hundreds of beta customers, we learned exactly what developers are looking for and we have responded to their needs. These new additions give developers the control they need and the flexibility they want over how they host and deploy their applications in a scalable environment,” said Guy Naor, chief technology officer of Morph Labs.

“Our broad support for today’s web application programming languages puts Morph AppSpace in a league of its own. Developers can use the best tools for the job and deploy their applications within a few minutes to a Morph AppSpace without worrying about vendor lock-in or captive pricing,” said David Abramowski, CEO of Morph Labs.

A free developer account to test drive the service is available from www.mor.ph.
