(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Kinvey today announced the availability of an enterprise-class mobile Backend as a Service (BaaS) hybrid cloud solution on VMware vCloud® Air™, providing the features enterprises need to build, scale, and manage engaging mobile apps. The combined offering is delivered as both multi-tenant and dedicated fully managed cloud services, allowing customers to focus all their efforts on designing and delivering 5-star user experiences instead of managing infrastructure.
As mobile is increasingly driving cloud adoption in the enterprise, existing on-premise software architecture and delivery models do not provide the speed, cost model, and feature set needed to sustain successful mobile initiatives. As a result, mobile is driving IT to behave differently – IT needs to be more agile in order to meet the speed of mobile innovation, more cost effective with app delivery, and must have the capability to provide a wide variety of new mobile features because it’s hard to anticipate the needs of every unique mobile use case. A cloud service empowers IT with an on-demand self-service platform that is always current with the latest features, while providing a cost effective, pay-as-you-go business model.
“VMware is uniquely positioned to support enterprise IT as it transitions from web infrastructure to the mobilecloud era,” said Ajay Patel, vice president of Application Services, VMware. “VMware vCloud® Air™ and Kinvey are a natural combination, delivering enterprises mobile innovation on a trusted hybrid cloud platform.”
With Kinvey on VMware vCloud Air, VMware customers, running production applications on virtual infrastructure, have a secure way to augment data and identity systems on internal infrastructure with a full-featured mobility platform. Enterprise IT administrators can use the same VMware tools to extend security and networking policies from the internal systems into the mobility layer running on vCloud Air, thereby enabling consistency in compliance and usage policies. Kinvey on vCloud Air allows enterprises to create new mobile-enabled business processes and applications, and brings them into the mobile cloud era.
“Kinvey on VMware vCloud Air allows enterprises to create innovative mobile-enabled business processes and applications that increase revenue and cut costs,” said Sravish Sridhar, Founder and CEO, Kinvey. “VMware and Kinvey are empowering IT to support any app use case that their business can think of — enabling the art of the possible.”
