cloudbase.io picks SoftLayer to host its Private Cloud offering
Essentially, cloudbase.io is powered by a NoSql database that can perform complex data operations within an object-orientated architecture.
“Originally designed for use by SMEs, we’ve upgraded the capabilities of cloudbase.io to cater for larger businesses looking to develop enterprise standard applications,” explains Stefano Buliani, cloudbase.io’s founder.
“It’s now possible to securely centralise more application business logic away from client devices – eliminating the need for heavy-duty data processing – with cloudbase.io Cloud Functions,” he added.
Private Cloud contracts come with 20 hours support per month to help with customising a developer’s platform – from custom cloud functions to an entirely new API.
Not everyone is happy with using a cloud based service for sensitive company data, for example.
“The public cloud is still perceived as a potential security risk so we’re working hard to help customers feel as secure as possible,” Bulian revealed.
The latest cloudbase.io developments therefore come with 2048-bit encrypted HTTPS connections, and with advanced authentication now as standard.
“We’re seeing a trend where companies are moving beyond merely having a mobile website and leveraging the value of the ability to engage with customers and employees wherever they go,” commented Jonathan Wisler, general manager for EMEA with SoftLayer.
“Today, the vast majority of people stay connected to the internet via a mobile device. We are excited to have cloudbase.io running their cloud hosting solution on our infrastructure,” Wisler added.
Larger enterprises will also be able to deploy cloudbase.io on their own infrastructure internally by purchasing a software licence for a yearly fee.
