DUBLIN, IRELAND (1st February 2011) – It’s not uncommon to hear of overnight internet successes. Good developers can quickly code great software and deploy it online to paying customers – but what happens to their service with the demand of thousands of customers?
A leading team of software developers and systems administrators, today announce Orchestra [http://orchestra.io], a new cloud computing platform for the deployment, hosting, and scaling of web applications.
Built by echolibre in Ireland, Orchestra is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for software developed in PHP, a popular language choice and the core of global internet successes such as Facebook, Digg, Wikipedia, WordPress.
EchoLibre are no stranger to the problem they’re solving. Speaking today, Managing Director Eamon Leonard said, "As PHP application developers, we found ourselves going through the same time consuming and costly process of setting up and configuring production server environments to scale for our clients. We knew there had to be a better way of doing this."
"We’ve created an automated platform that reduces the time and money overhead that was involved for us to set up and scale popular PHP applications, and we figured if this was critical for our business, it’d be critical for other developers too", they were right. The company proceeded to interview their peers confirming both market demand and prospective first customers.
"Our customers want to be able to take advantage of powerful third-party services", continued Leonard as he explained how the company is partnering with database, testing and email routing companies to package up their service into a symphony of add-ons that can quickly be deployed in harmony.
Orchestra is currently in private beta, and developers should visit www.orchestra.io before 18:00 (PST) Friday 11th February 2011, to register their interest for exclusive early access. When success comes for Orchestra, at least they know it’ll scale!
