3Tera AppLogic Adds Windows Support

1 comment

3Tera Inc. has released a beta version of its “grid operating system” software that supports Microsoft Windows Server, a step long sought by users, the company said. The company’s announcement came just hours after Amazon Web Services said that its EC2 platform would support Windows servers. A spokesman said 3Tera’s release of its AppLogic 2.4 beta “had been planned for some time.”

3Tera doesn’t host its own platform, but licenses its AppLogic software to hosting companies to build virtual private data centers that can power cloud applications. AppLogic, which allows companies to run applications in a scalable virtualized environment, previously had supported Linux, Sun’s Open Solaris and Solaris 10.

“Windows support is an important requirement for an open cloud computing environment robust enough to take on any Web or enterprise application,” said Bert Armijo, senior vice president of sales and marketing, 3Tera Inc. “Solutions like .net, IIS, SQL Server and Exchange have made Windows a critical part of IT infrastructure.”
