SnapLogic for Amazon EC2 Now Available
Open Source Data Integration Framework Leverages Amazon’s Cloud Computing Platform
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Jul 8, 2008 – SnapLogic, Inc., the Really Simple Integration company, today announced the immediate availability of a new version of the SnapLogic open source data integration framework optimized to run on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). SnapLogic enables enterprises to integrate data on both sides of the enterprise firewall and to create enterprise mashups and rich Internet applications (RIAs). SnapLogic for Amazon EC2 provides Amazon Web Services (AWS) users with a convenient SnapLogic deployment option that scales easily and eliminates the costs of acquiring and maintaining expensive server hardware. SnapLogic for Amazon EC2 also makes it easier than ever to integrate SaaS application data, such as Salesforce.com. SnapLogic’s Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is available at no charge at www.snaplogic.com/aws/ami. More information about the SnapLogic for Amazon EC2 is available at www.snaplogic.com/aws.
“Amazon Web Services provide highly reliable and elastic computing and storage resources, creating a compelling, cost-effective deployment alternative for data integration infrastructures that have been architected with the Web in mind,” said Steve Rabuchin, director, developer relations and business development for Amazon Web Services. “SnapLogic for EC2 users will be supported by the same technology infrastructure that Amazon.com uses.”
A recent Forrester survey indicated that data integration difficulties are the main inhibitors of enterprise adoption of SaaS. SnapLogic leverages Web technologies to enable enterprises to easily integrate data in the cloud with data behind the firewall.
“Architecturally, SnapLogic is simply better suited to integrate SaaS data than competing data integration offerings. For enterprises seeking to integrate data and applications on both sides of the enterprise firewall, SnapLogic is the obvious choice,” said Chris Marino, chief executive officer, SnapLogic. “For AWS users that want their integration infrastructure in the cloud, SnapLogic for EC2 provides them with all the benefits they expect from SaaS, including rapid deployment, low cost, and instant scalability.”
