ZeroStack Extends Open Application Ecosystem for Developers

Integrated Z-AppStore Now Offers More than 40 Developer Tools

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 26, 2017 –ZeroStack, Inc., creators of the self-driving on-premises cloud, today announced that the Z-AppStore now comprises more than 40 popular developer applications. This Open Application Ecosystem allows software development teams to take their projects from concept to production in the same on-premises, self-provisioned cloud environment.

Application development teams and individual developers often have their preferred toolsets. ZeroStack’s intelligent private cloud provides users with a broad set of tools to satisfy every development team and individual developer, and to enable self-provisioning of those tools to maximize developer productivity while slashing IT overhead. In fact, any OpenStack API-compatible application will work in the Z-AppStore, and developers can easily add other tools they prefer.

The Z-AppStore includes eight key categories of Open Application Ecosystem tools that eliminate vendor lock-in: NoSQL and SQL databases, cloud management platforms, Big Data tools, operating systems, container and orchestration tools, CI/CD tools, and modern application and server stacks. Teams can upload their own application tools and complex application stacks using templates. As a result, the Z-AppStore is an incredibly rich environment that can be extended using RESTful OpenStack APIs for easy integration. While the Z-AppStore allows developers to choose any tool they want, it also helps IT departments avoid vendor lock-in.

“Enterprise IT staff is responsible for providing a productive environment for their developers, but with dozens of applications in use, it’s a time-consuming and frustrating challenge,” said Steve Garrison, vice president of marketing and business development at ZeroStack. “With our Open Application Ecosystem on the ZeroStack Intelligent Cloud Platform, our customers leverage self-service provisioning for every popular development application so DevOps teams are empowered to automatically spin up their favorite tools.”
