3Tera expands platform backing for its AppLogic grid software, allowing for mixing among Linux, Sun Solaris, and Windows and providing scalability

3Tera is expanding platform support for its AppLogic grid software for Web applications, enabling it to run on Windows, a company official said at the TechCrunch50 2008 conference in San Francisco on Monday.

Now supported on Linux and Sun Solaris, the Windows capability allows mixing of all three environments and provides scalability, said Essy Nickolova, vice president of marketing communications at 3Tera. The company was showing a preview of the Windows version at the conference, she said.

"What [Windows support] allows you to do is basically take advantage of all the code written today for Windows and use Windows servers and Microsoft-based products for Web services," Nickolova said.

The official announcement is planned for September 15 at the VMworld 2008 conference in Las Vegas. The public beta is planned for that day with general availability expected in the December timeframe.

AppLogic serves as a grid operating system for cloud computing and running Web applications. 3Tera hosting partners can use AppLogic to offer clouds and utility computing services on grids of x86 servers. AppLogic does not require SANs, blade servers, firewalls, load balancers, or other expensive hardware, according to 3Tera.

"It makes Web applications scalable, highly available, [and] reduces time to market because it eliminates the need to deal with infrastructure," Nickolova said.

Primary customers include hosting partners and datacenters using the technology to build virtual private datacenters, enterprises, and end-users who use hosting partners.
