Deploy, Manage and Consolidate Data-Heavy Applications with 1-Click App-Store Experience and Get Entire Application Lifecycle Management
SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 14, 2018 – Robin Systems, the only container-based Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) software provider, today announced a Free Trial Edition of Robin Platform on Amazon Cloud (NASDAQ: AMZN).
The Free Trial edition allows users to fully test drive Robin Platform Enterprise Edition in a SaaS model (software-as-a-service) at no cost. With a short registration, the entire platform is available for consumption, including all features and functions. Full access is granted for the entire range of pre-configured data-heavy workloads and pipelines of Big-Data applications (Hadoop Cloudera, Hortonworks, Kafka, SPARK etc.), NoSQL (Cassandra, MongoDB, Elastic etc.) as well as Enterprise Databases (Oracle, MySQL, Postgres and more) so that users can test drive the robust platform with an app-store experience, and experiment with the wealth of 1-click lifecycle management features ranging from initial deployment, resource and service scaling, performance management and SLA guarantees, full application snapshots to clones and time travel.
“We found Robin’s Free Trial to be a great way to get hands-on experience with the Robin software and its capabilities without having to commit funds upfront to building out and running our own cluster. It has proven useful to easily provision and then test drive Big Data and NoSQL applications on Amazon. Clearly the snapshot and cloning features could benefit our company and streamline our workflow.” Said Steve Seike, principal software engineer, VitalConnect, Inc.
This release follows the well-received Robin Platform Community Edition (CE) which is free forever for deployments of up to 5 instances (regardless of AMI type). Robin Platform CE does require users to use their own Amazon account and resources (AMIs, Storage/EBS, etc.), whereas the Free Trial Edition eliminates even those requirements – so that it can be used with no prior setup and is totally free.
“The Free Trial edition is a natural extension of community and enterprise editions of Robin Platform on AWS. This makes it even simpler for users to get hands-on experience with Robin Platform to explore all of the unique features and functions it offers.” said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems.
Robin Platform offers the broadest support for enterprise data apps in the market. It is the only solution that lets you share resources across multiple applications and users, while guaranteeing performance isolation. Robin is also the only solution that slashes application deployment, as well as management times from days to minutes. Robin Platform is a container-based pure software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud-based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications.
