Standing Cloud Extends Capabilities with Support for HP Cloud Services

"Standing Cloud powered by HP Cloud Services" simplifies cloud application deployment and management for HP Cloud Services customers

Standing Cloud (, a leading provider of cloud application management solutions, today announced support for the newly launched HP Cloud Services (, providing HP Cloud Services customers with a vastly simplified way to deploy, manage and distribute applications in the cloud.

The new offering, Standing Cloud powered by HP Cloud Services, leverages HP Cloud Services' infrastructure capabilities and elements of the Standing Cloud Marketplace to provide developers, enterprise users and ISVs with one-stop application hosting, installation and management via scalable virtual servers on demand. It integrates directly with HP Cloud Services and the OpenStack® API.

"We believe that Standing Cloud and HP Cloud Services share a common vision of the infrastructure cloud - one that is intuitive, interoperable, open source-based and user-focused, with a minimum of system administration overhead." said David Jilk, CEO of Standing Cloud. "This collaboration builds on that promise, and we're pleased to be working with them."

The Standing Cloud Marketplace is a comprehensive solution to the challenges faced by Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers in moving up to the application layer.

Its intuitive user interface, broad catalog of open-source applications and development platforms, and automated deployment and lifecycle management features help cloud providers meet the application needs of their customers, while its extensive white label configurability meets the branding and integration needs of the provider.

Available application lifecycle management features include automated application monitoring, backups, single-click version upgrades, application cloning, status logs, a browser-based terminal window, and a range of resource scaling options.

The availability of Standing Cloud powered by HP Cloud Services coincides with today's public beta launch of HP Cloud Services.
