Boston & Paris -- October 18, 2011 -- Nuxeo, the provider of a content management platform for business applications, today announced the availability of Nuxeo Cloud, a content management platform that provides a seamless development, customization, testing and production environment in the cloud.
With Nuxeo Cloud, solution and information architects can build a content-centric application without taxing internal IT infrastructure and resources, with the benefit of adapting their operational costs to the needs of their project, whether they want to scale big or lean. With this announcement, Nuxeo delivers a comprehensive enterprise content management platform as a service.
Nuxeo Cloud offers a hosted application environment and managed services for the entire content management application lifecycle through the Nuxeo Platform, from prototype to production, including a full-service customization and configuration toolset. By design, the Nuxeo Platform is highly customizable and extensible, enabling the building of content management applications that correspond to many diverse use cases.
"Nuxeo is the first content management software vendor to provide a complete development-to-production environment that is fully customizable in the cloud. Nuxeo Cloud delivers a wide range of benefits to organizations, including faster time to deployment, reduced strain on in-house IT resources, and greater cost elasticity as projects evolve," said Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO.
A subscription to Nuxeo Cloud includes allocation of environments for development, testing and/or production, automated maintenance, access to the Nuxeo Online Services portal, upgrades, Nuxeo Studio to customize an application and to Nuxeo Marketplace to extend with ready-made plugins. Nuxeo Cloud also offers premium support options.
"The Nuxeo content management platform ecosystem is tailor made for deployment as a cloud service, bringing the best in development and production of content management applications via a simple interface. We listened closely to customer and community feedback to help initiate this pivotal closed-loop cloud offering," said Barroca.
Key highlights of Nuxeo Cloud include:
- Access to Nuxeo Studio, which provides a configuration and customization environment to speed development and seamless testing of content management projects, with automated deployment to the cloud application;
- Allocation of runtime environments and resources in the cloud; multiple server environments can be supported, if needed;
- Automated maintenance and upgrade of the customization, with managed upgrade to the Nuxeo Platform;
- Applications that run smoothly with reduced in-house resources, and application monitoring by Nuxeo support teams.
"We are using Nuxeo Cloud for our development and production work, and are extremely pleased with how perfect the offering is for our use case needs," said Rajiv Cooray, application development manager, InterContinental Hotels Group. "We were looking for the traditional functionalities of a content management system but with a lightweight footprint in the cloud. Nuxeo Cloud fit the bill because it deploys and runs anywhere -- pivotal to our hotels in various regions -- it's Java-based, and we wanted a PaaS solution where payment was based on usage. These benefits, plus the fact that Nuxeo Cloud does not tax our internal infrastructure, are extremely helpful."
The Nuxeo Cloud monthly subscription packages are designed to easily scale up or down for customers to closely manage resource needs and costs as requirements change over time. The offering is available immediately on the Nuxeo Cloud page.
