Microsoft Windows Azure Pack in the data centres of Pironet NDH

PaaS platform for developing and operating software from the cloud

(PresseBox) (Cologne, ) Medium-sized software vendors who wish to market their applications as cloud solutions can now profit from the close cooperation between Microsoft and Pironet NDH. This partnership means that Microsoft's Platform as a Service technology is available to software vendors from Pironet NDH's data centres. The basis for this is provided by the Windows Azure Pack Software from Microsoft.

"Partners like Pironet NDH will in future play a key role in establishing Cloud solutions and providing development environments for Cloud applications," says Kai Göttmann, Director Server, Tools & Cloud Business at Microsoft Germany. "Because if we want to adapt the Microsoft Cloud OS strategy to the local market, this means freedom of choice, openness and planability for a hybrid, enterprise-capable infrastructure which adjusts to the customer like a chameleon while still remaining consistent. Consequently, it is part of our hybrid approach to engage in strategic partnerships." Pironet NDH has more than ten years practical experience in setting up successful on demand software services, and in the context of the Microsoft SaaS Incubation Center Program, belonged quite early on to the small circle of qualified specialists worldwide that support software houses in expanding their business activities by means of a cloud scenario.

Customised PaaS environment

"We want to make the full scope of the advantages of cloud computing available to our partners with the help of the Windows Azure Pack," adds Khaled Chaar, Managing Director Responsible for Business Strategy and Cloud Enabling at Pironet NDH. "In doing so we combine the benefits of a highly-standardised platform with the option of taking into account the individual situations and requirements profiles of our customers - starting with a large number of associated services, through to different compensation models which suit the marketing strategies and specific requirements in the software houses' target markets."

In the joint initiative of Microsoft and Pironet NDH, the market researchers of Crisp Research see a great opportunity above all for medium-sized software houses: "The users' demand for web-based delivery models will affect every software house and will become an existential question for many. Joint initiatives of platform providers such as Microsoft and service providers such as Pironet NDH enable companies to progress considerably more quickly in developing their software applications and business models further," says Steve Janata, Senior Analyst at Crisp Research.
