Blitz.io and Iron.io Now Available as Add-Ons for PHP Fog
We’re thrilled to let folks know that we’re continuing to grow our add-on program. We’ve added two new partners this week: Blitz.io and Iron.io. We’re very excited about adding these new tools in the arsenal so you can focus on the business of writing excellent applications with velocity and grace, free from worry about your IT infrastructure. Blitz.io and Iron.io join our existing partners, MailGun, MongoHQ, MongoLab and New Relic. If you are developing and managing applications using our flagship PaaS product, PHP Fog, you absolutely need to check out these new add-ons.
A Bit More About the Add-on Program
The AppFog Add-On program, introduced in December, allows users of PHP Fog to develop apps that integrate functionality from these third party partners easily and to manage accounts with their services from a single interface. This intuitive interface displays partners’ services options, allowing the customer to easily integrate additional functionality into the applications they build on PHP Fog and soon AppFog as well. We will continue to expand its partner ecosystem adding new tools and solutions to the program throughout the year.
From Our New Partners
Here’s a bit more from the fine folks at MuDynamics, creators of Blitz.io, and from Iron.io about why they’re excited to be part of the PHP Fog platform and the AppFog family…
“We’re very excited about making Blitz an AppFog ‘Add-On’. This program is an outstanding way for developers to quickly access the best development solutions available from within AppFog. The integration of Blitz is another piece in this puzzle, enabling developers to quickly create rock solid applications without having to learn the nuances of load and performance testing.” – Ajit Sancheti, Co-Founder, Mu Dynamics
Blitz provides load and performance testing as a service. Using Blitz with PHP Fog, developers can quickly perform this testing without ever leaving their PaaS console.
“Cloud developers need fast deployment along with the ability to scale. When it comes to message handling and background processing, most developers spend a lot of time creating and managing these components. IronMQ and IronWorker offload the challenges of maintaining what ends up being pretty complex systems into massively scalable services. Like AppFog, Iron.io is committed to removing complexity for developers, and we are excited to work together on this mission. Through our partnership, developers can spend far less time managing infrastructure and far more time on areas of their application that really matter.” – Chad Arimura, CEO and Co-Founder, Iron.io
Iron.io provides message and task queues as a service. This allows developers to integrate enterprise class queuing without having to mess about with complicated integrations and expensive products.
What Are You Building?
We’re excited to be adding more partners to our ecosystem, but we’re much more interested in how these partnerships enable your success. What cool stuff are you building? How has the Add-On program made your life easier? Your application better? Your users more delighted? Our Community Manager, Leslie Hawthorn, would love to hear from you.
