"AppScale's API compatibility is lightyears ahead of the competition"

Product Overview

AppScale software allows you to turn dedicated infrastructure into private AWS regions. With a flexible installation and a customizable configuration, AppScale runs on virtually any infrastructure, be it from a service provider, bare-metal or on-premise. Each deployment exposes dedicated AWS API endpoints that can be used by any software and workloads that run on or use core infrastructure services from AWS public cloud.  Since each deployment of AppScale is self-contained, different policies or rules can apply. For example, a deployment can be completely isolated from unsecured networks, such as the public internet, creating an air-gapped AWS environment that doesn’t require external connections. 

  • Proven and time-tested software deployed at large scale (>300k cores)

  • Flexible configuration conforms to various infrastructures and use cases

  • AppScale and its partners offer various levels of support to fit your needs

Technical Overview

AppScale leverages the same   APIs you already know

AppScale deployments expose AWS API endpoints which can be used by any software or AWS workloads using such APIs. For example, AppScale does not implement any client CLI to interact with a deployment but it uses the AWS CLI tools which can be configured with different profiles to interact with AWS regions and AppScale deployments at the same time. AppScale also implements an easy to use GUI (the AppScale console) for the end user, and an administrator CLI to allow for admin operations (set limits, retire old nodes, extend deployments, migrate workloads).
