Single Cloud Lock-In
Cloud infrastructures and services vary. Even with "API-level compatibility," the process of moving an application to another provider can be very difficult. Without the ability to easily move applications, you lose the flexibility to change cloud providers based on cost or business needs.
Cloud-agnostic application deployment
Using ElasticBox, you can build and deploy applications independent of the cloud platform.
ElasticBox supports infrastructures from Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure, Rackspace, HP Cloud Services, and OpenStack.
Developers can assemble applications using ElasticBox without worrying about platform specifics. ElasticBox deploys components and allocates services and infrastructure on the various cloud providers as needed.
Using ElasticBox eliminates cloud platform 'lock-in' by:
- Enabling developers to assemble applications without having to know specifics about the underlying infrastructure platform.
- Simplifying the migration of applications between cloud infrastructures - for example, between development and production environments.
- Streamlining the process of upgrading or updating applications across platforms when individual components change.
With boxes and applications, its easy to deploy applications on any provider -- preventing lock-in.
