OW2 launches the “Try AppHub” campaign at OpenStack Summit to promote its self-service cloud-oriented deployment platform

At OpenStack Summit in Barcelona attendees can win a prize by trying the AppHub self-service, cloud-oriented deployment platform for enterprise open source software on OW2 booth #A19.

OpenStack Summit, Barcelona, October 24, 2016 - OW2, the global community for open source infrastructure software, launches the “Try AppHub” campaign to promote the self-service cloud- oriented deployment platform for enterprise-grade open source software. Attendees at the OpenStack Summit, October 24-28, in Barcelona, are invited booth #A19 to execute a deployment from the AppHub cloud-oriented self-service deployment platform and enter the raffle to win a connected watch.

“With this campaign, our objective is to rapidly achieve 50 successful deployments and learn from the feedback to improve the platform.” says OW2 CEO Cedric Thomas. All open-source end-users and contributors are welcome to try AppHub and give their feedback now. The AppHub team will be at OpenStack Summit in Barcelona.

The AppHub marketplace already showcases some 100 projects and sports several dozens of ready- to-deploy open source software. The platform is designed and operated by Fraunhofer FOKUS, UShareSoft and OW2. It combines software quality best practices and machine image automation in a free and convenient distribution channel for open source software. AppHub is made of the following integrated components:

  • The AppHub Open Source Directory helps end-users identify and select the project assets.
  • The AppHub Store enables end-users to view software installation information, then to import pre-configured software into the AppHub Factory.
  • The AppHub Factory generates machine image to the format of the end-user choice, allowing to download the image on a local infrastructure or to publish it to a cloud infrastructure

As of January 1st, 2017, AppHub will become the cloud-oriented self-service deployment platform for the OW2 community. The sustainable marketplace will continue to grow with the OW2 open source code base, international software and services.
