Infraserve goes with CA while Ninefold looks to open source world

Clouds at both ends of the pitch

CA is celebrating another win in the Australian cloud market, with Verb Group company Infraserve adding AppLogic-based platform-as-a-service offerings to its cloud portfolio.

Infraserve had previously concentrated on the cloud infrastructure market, owning and operating its own data centre hosting HP pods with Cisco networking infrastructure.

It says it will be targeting independent software vendors (ISVs) with the new PaaS offering, as a way to help them turn their products into cloud offerings as easily as possible. Its other main channel to market will be managed services providers, the company says, who will be able to host software on the Infraserve platform on behalf of end users.

Meanwhile, the Macquarie Telecom-backed startup Ninefold is snuggling up to the open source world. The company has announced that its cloud storage and computing APIs have been accepted for inclusion in the Java/JVM jclouds libraries, the Ruby Fog libraries, and the Python Libcloud.

Ninefold says it’s also seeking developers to build a cloud library for PHP, and has created a new open source package, Nuget, to make its APIs more accessible to Microsoft .NET.

The idea, the company says, is to let users standardize how their applications connect with its cloud storage and computing services. ®
