SAN FRANCISCO, CA – December 18, 2013 – MuleSoft, provider of the world”s most widely used integration platform to connect the New Enterprise, today announced a new release for its CloudHub integration platform as a service (iPaaS), with advanced security, reliability and scalability features that further solidify its lead in enterprise cloud integration. CloudHub Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) offers the first network-level security capability for connecting an on-premise data center to an iPaaS, connecting cloud and on-premise applications together with the same level of security and performance as in a private data center. In addition, CloudHub Fabric provides high availability and disaster recovery for integration applications, ensuring reliable message delivery for mission critical and high-throughput use cases. As the cloud integration engine for MuleSoft’s flagship Anypoint Platform™ and built to meet the integration needs of the Global 500 and beyond, CloudHub has quadrupled customer adoption over the past year due to the massive uptake of SaaS applications and the resulting explosion of endpoints.
“The past decade has seen a massive adoption of best of breed cloud applications at the departmental level to drive innovation and optimization at the line of business,” said R “Ray” Wang, Principal Analyst and Chairman, Constellation Research, Inc. “Consequently, organizations seek simple and scalable ways to create interoperability among this sea of siloed data and endpoints, and to meet the enterprise desire to build integrations using this same solution. Customers seek solutions that provide enterprise-ready cloud integration by offering hardware-level VPN security for hybrid integration scenarios.”
To streamline business processes and gain competitive advantage by connecting all their legacy, cloud and mobile endpoints, enterprises need a simple, reliable and scalable way to build, manage and run their integrations. The CloudHub platform is a highly available, multi-tenant and elastic integration cloud.
The new features further satisfy enterprise requirements:
- CloudHub VPC enables all traffic to be routed between the CloudHub VPC and the corporate data center over an industry standard, encrypted IPsec hardware VPN connection. This allows cloud-based integrations on CloudHub to connect with on-premise applications with the same level of security as on-premise integration infrastructure.
- CloudHub Fabric provides high availability for integration applications running in the cloud on the CloudHub platform, offering reliable delivery of messages to ensure peace of mind in mission-critical deployments. CloudHub Fabric enables automated failover in the event of an outage, scalability for peak workloads, and dynamic load balancing to optimize performance of the platform.
With these enterprise-grade security and reliability advancements, CloudHub continues to expand its lead as the only true enterprise-class iPaaS. MuleSoft continues to meet explosive market demand for the next generation of integration with its Anypoint Platform, including quadrupling year-over-year growth of the company’s cloud integration platform. As the world’s first global iPaaS, CloudHub data centers are distributed across the world, enabling enterprises to deploy integration applications with one click to any CloudHub region in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas for optimized integration performance and regulatory compliance.
“In order to survive and thrive in the era of the New Enterprise, companies must connect their silos of cloud endpoints with on-premise systems so that mission critical information can exist wherever it needs to be to get business done,” said Chris Purpura, vice president and general manager, cloud integration at MuleSoft. “MuleSoft enables endpoints to be connected without boundaries while meeting enterprise reliability, security and scalability requirements. Businesses now have a seamless, enterprise-grade way to directly connect cloud-based applications and devices to their existing IT infrastructures.”
MuleSoft’s secure multi-tenant cloud integration platform has been built to deliver the scalability and efficiency benefits of the cloud with the flexibility of deploying integration runtime in the cloud and on premises in a hybrid architecture. CloudHub allows companies to connect SaaS and on-premise applications; create and manage APIs to capture more value from data; modernize and service-enable legacy applications; and exchange data with partners in real time. With hundreds of prebuilt connectors, enterprises experience rapid time to value when connecting to SaaS and on-premise applications. They are also able to lower TCO with elastic platform and zero-touch upgrades, future-proof for hybrid cloud architectures and support mission critical use cases on a highly available global footprint.
