DevOps Leader Electric Cloud® Partners with PTC® to offer Application Deployment Solutions

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud, a leading DevOps optimization company announced today that it has joined the PTC PartnerAdvantage™ Program and will offer customers its application deployment solution, ElectricDeploy, integrated with PTC Integrity®. PTC recently notified customers of the decision to end-of-life its MKS Deploy solution and is partnering with Electric Cloud to provide customers a migration path to the innovative technology offered in ElectricDeploy.

"PTC is committed to bringing innovation and world class lifecycle management capabilities to the ALM market. With this focus we decided to work with industry leading development operations vendors when replacing native capabilities in these areas.  We chose Electric Cloud for our customers' deploy migration path because ElectricDeploy offers customers advanced deployment technology that enhances Integrity's already industry leading release management capabilities," said Doug Akers, Vice President, Product Management, PTC. "Electric Cloud's innovative technology includes industry first features such as fail-safe deployments and a model-driven approach that reduces the complexity and variability of application deployments.  Like PTC, Electric Cloud has significant expertise serving large enterprise customers.  We are confident that ElectricDeploy will help our customers achieve faster delivery of higher-quality applications and that they will receive the world-class support that all Electric Cloud customers enjoy."

The integration between PTC Integrity and Electric Cloud's ElectricDeploy platforms provides customers an enterprise-grade, end-to-end Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and DevOps solution for developing, building, testing, and deploying applications. With Electric Cloud's out-of-the-box integrations with hundreds of essential software development, middleware, and infrastructure tools, customers can now develop and deliver applications across physical, virtual, and cloud environments with a single solution.

"We are thrilled to be working with PTC to transition their deploy customers to Electric Cloud," said Electric Cloud CEO Mike Maciag. "The strength of the PTC solutions for ALM combined with Electric Cloud's DevOps solutions are a natural fit. With a consistent process to transition software from Dev to Ops, the value of Agile development will be fully realized." 

ElectricDeploy automates and standardizes application deployments across all environments — Dev, QA, pre-production, and production — by modeling applications, related environments, and processes. Built on Electric Cloud's award-winning ElectricCommander platform, ElectricDeploy reduces the occurrences and impacts of deployment failures in production environments through features that make ElectricDeploy the industry's first fail-safe solution. Fail-safe features address three separate areas:

  • Code-Safe offers run-time debugging capabilities to interactively refine deployment processes.
  • Run-Safe lets teams define success and failure thresholds for application deployments so that deployments can account for real world environments and deployment situations.
  • Recover-Safe enables teams to define recovery policies and processes for dynamic management of deployment failures.

In conjunction with PTC's end-of-life program to retire its MKS Deploy product, Electric Cloud has announced a special time limited offer for PTC customers with active MKS Deploy maintenance contracts to migrate to ElectricDeploy. To take advantage of the offer, customers must contact before December 1, 2012.
