Cloud portability across multiple clouds and devices

By CBR Staff Writer

VMware announced with Google the general availability of the first in a series of technology collaborations to make enterprise software developers more efficient at building, deploying and managing applications within any cloud environment on any device.

The company said the collaborative projects that will be available in the next two weeks include Spring Roo and Google Web Toolkit, Spring Insight and Google Speed Tracer, SpringSource Tool Suite and Google Plugin for Eclipse.

VMware said that the new application development tool Spring Roo and Google Web Toolkit – Spring Roo, will enable developers to build browser apps in enterprise production environments.

Spring Insight and Google Speed Tracer enables end to end performance visibility into cloud and provides a holistic view into the web application performance.

The SpringSource Tool Suite and Google Plugin for Eclipse make it easy for developers to build and maintain web-based, enterprise applications.

VMware said the general availability of these projects represents the first in a series of technology collaborations to enhance cloud portability across multiple clouds and devices.

Google vice president of developer platforms Vic Gundotra said developers are looking for faster ways to build and run web applications, and businesses want platforms that are open and flexible.

"By making deployments of Spring Java applications on Google App Engine using Google Web Toolkit generally available, developers can deploy Java applications in production environments of their choice while leveraging rich web front-end across multiple devices," Gundotra said.
