Stockholm, 27 January 2015. Today sees the launch of RedBridge Apps for businesses that want to be able to develop and launch applications quickly and cost-effectively as a service. With this, RedBridge is the first Swedish-based company to offer an application platform in the cloud on the Swedish market.
RedBridge's application environment in the cloud means you won't have to set up and administer your own development, test and production environments for applications. You have fast access to reliable tools, enabling you to stay one step ahead of your competitors with innovative services demanded by the market and your employees.
"Developers in Sweden can now easily test ideas and launch applications and it doesn't cost a fortune. RedBridge Apps gives you a team of productive inventors that can freely use and share the building blocks needed to develop services in a safe way that will make your business grow" says Stefan Andersson, CEO at RedBridge.
Ingenious, affordable and Swedish
Just like RedBridge Compute, our IaaS service (Infrastructure as a Service), the PaaS service (Platform as a Service) offers an ingenious formula for profitable IT:
RedBridge Apps is based on modern Red Hat technology and open source code together with RedBridge's best practices primarily in the field of software, development methodology and operating services such as self-service in the cloud (IaaS) and managed services (Premium)
The solution includes Cartridges such as programming languages, frameworks, databases, CMSs and other tools, including Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl, Node.js, Jenkins, Django, Apache Tomcat, WildFly, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Drupal and Wordpress.
All code is subject to version control with Git, and interaction between development and operation is enhanced using DevOps methodology.
RedBridge Apps is available in Small, Medium and Large. You choose the Gear size (RAM and storage) and the Cartridge you need to develop an application.
RAM comes in 512MB (Small), 1GB (Medium) and 2GB (Large) sizes, and you get 6GB of disk space for every Gear. Prices per hour are 0.15 SEK/h (Small), 0.30 SEK/h (Medium) and 0,60 SEK/h (Large) for every Gear. You just pay for what you use, and you can pay by card or against an invoice.
When you register for the PaaS service, you'll get two Small Gears absolutely free in order to try out the solution with any Cartridge.
