OneCloud Alliance Brings Together Top Cloud, Technology and Service Providers

New Partner Program Led by Apprenda Promotes Open, Interoperable Cloud, Delivering Long-Term Enterprise Value

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gartner Catalyst Conference 2014 -- Apprenda, the leader in enterprise Platform as-a-Service (PaaS), today announced the OneCloud Alliance, a partner program dedicated to bringing together best-of-breed cloud providers to deliver portable and interoperable solutions without the fear of vendor lock-in. The program builds on Apprenda's commitment to encouraging flexibility, ease of use, and most of all, customer choice, when it comes to cloud application delivery.

"Apprenda is a true customer-first organization," said Matias Klein, VP, Intelligence Hub, McKesson. "It's refreshing to work with a company that's focused on more than just their own product. They're an advocate for us, and work together with other companies to provide us with better solutions, delivering more value every day. We're looking forward to working with new OneCloud Alliance partners to continue to drive innovation at McKesson."

Many enterprises struggle to integrate new technology, like cloud computing, with existing legacy investments. The OneCloud Alliance brings together companies that are committed to application portability, and ensuring that both old and new technologies work together seamlessly to provide a highly-effective and intuitive approach to cloud application delivery for all enterprises. OneCloud Alliance customers are assured that they have the freedom to choose the best approach for their company, maximizing existing investments while achieving the benefits of a modern cloud environment, which include faster time to market, increased developer productivity and the opportunity to more easily uncover new revenue streams. 

"We're a different enterprise software company -- we're truly customer-first," said Sinclair Schuller, CEO, Apprenda. "Our customers have lamented the challenges of working with locked-in enterprise stacks that vendors have sold them in the past. This will not happen with the OneCloud Alliance. It's our commitment to customers that we will work with other vendors to ensure interoperability and portability in the cloud era."

Supporting Partner Quotes:

"We believe the capabilities that Apprenda brings to the market will accelerate our customers' ability to consume our current and future cloud offerings by abstracting the way their applications view and consume infrastructure. Apprenda simply breaks the traditional paradigm of how applications are hardwired to their supporting infrastructure and software stacks."
-- Michael Kollar, VP, Project Solutions and Services, Atos

"Apprenda's PaaS is transforming how enterprises develop, deploy, and manage applications in the cloud era. With Citrix CloudPlatform and Apprenda, the devops story comes to life: enterprise development teams get the freedom they desire and operators get the control and automation necessary to ensure a consistent, predictable experience."
--Krishna Subramanian, VP, Product Marketing, Cloud Platforms Group, Citrix

"The combination of CA SiteMinder® and Apprenda's enterprise PaaS dramatically streamlines the process of building custom applications with SSO and allows them to deliver these faster without any additional coding."
-- Shawn Sprague, VP Product Management, Security, CA, Inc.
