A new partnership between AppFog and Rackspace will enable cloud development and deployment using both services. The AppFog platform as a service (PaaS) will now support the Rackspace infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and AppFog will be listed in the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace. “We are very excited to align our efforts with Rackspace,” said AppFog CEO Lucas Carlson. “As a market leader and a powerful force within OpenStack, Rackspace is a valuable option for developers looking for a reliable, scalable and secure IaaS option. With Cloud Databases and Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack, we can be assured that our efforts support open standards, protect against vendor lock-in and enable developers to deploy on public or private OpenStack-based clouds.”
With AppFog, developers can choose which cloud computing infrastructure service to use–Amazon Web Services, HP, Microsoft Azure or Rackspace. AppFog supports multiple languages including Java, .NET, Node, Python, Ruby, PHP and others.
