CAST Partners with Google Cloud to Accelerate Application Modernization

CAST | April 08, 2022

Today CAST announced a new arrangement with Google Cloud to help accelerate the migration and application modernization programs of customers worldwide, complementing the Google capabilities already available through the Google Cloud Application Modernization Program (CAMP).

“Enterprises and software vendors are increasingly looking to take advantage of the agility, efficiency, and rich catalog of Google Cloud for complex custom-built applications, which are mostly designed for different environments and need to be modernized or refactored for cloud,” said Marc Zablit, Executive Vice President Business Development at CAST. “Typically, there is no accurate intelligence available about their actual architecture or what needs to be changed inside.”

CAST products provide insights into the inner workings and structural condition of custom-built applications, essential for speeding up and de-risking their migration and modernization to cloud:

  • CAST Highlight can analyze hundreds of applications in a week to pinpoint what needs to change in the source code, the effort required, the best-suited Google Cloud services to use, and the best migration path to take.
  • CAST Imaging then automatically reverse engineers the actual architecture of a given application into interactive application maps to help architects and developers navigate key modernization steps, such as re-platforming, re-architecting, framework or database replacement, breaking monoliths into services.

Once in the cloud, continuous use of CAST ensures the applications remain agile, safe, and resilient.

“Technologies that provide new ways for enterprises to analyze the inner workings of complex software applications have become increasingly important to organizations’ modernization roadmaps,” said Erwan Menard, Global Director, Infrastructure and Applications Modernization Solution Engineering at Google Cloud. “We’re pleased to partner with CAST to provide customers with the products and expertise they need to plan, accelerate and de-risk complex migrations and application modernization programs.”

Hundreds of enterprises and leading system integrators, such as Accenture, BAH, CGI, DXC, IBM Services, Infosys, LTI, Wipro, already use CAST products to enable safer and faster migration to cloud.

HYCU® Launches R-Cloud™ Data Protection Development Platform for SaaS

HYCU, Inc. | February 07, 2023

HYCU has recently launched R-Cloud™, a software development and data protection platform, providing Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Software as a Service (SaaS) companies with in-days, recovery, and backup services in their respective platforms. R-Cloud is a low-code, purpose-built data protection development platform that assists SaaS vendors in delivering backup and recovery services. Unfortunately, in more than 17,000 SaaS applications, only some have these features, making business-critical applications for IT departments more complicated to manage, protect, and overview. The constant development and patent-pending innovations of software resulted in the R-Cloud platform, engaging customers and SaaS solution providers with the visual data output, secured data identification, protection, and recovery from human error or malicious cyberattack. In addition, it empowers SaaS companies with HYCU's data protection, identity and access management, policy management, analytics, and orchestration. HYCU's Founder and CEO, Simon Taylor, said, "If the number of vendors in one of the industry's leading market reports have only protected seven SaaS applications to date, the current approach to backup and recover SaaS has no future." He added, "The entire approach is broken. New SaaS offerings are being built. New approaches to protect them are a must. That is why we have rethought the way data protection is done and found a way to provide ISVs and SaaS vendors the ability to add data protection with ease. Granular backup and recovery for SaaS is now available in as little as four days, when it would have taken at least four quarters before to develop." (Source – Globe Newswire) About HYCU HYCU, a multi-cloud SaaS data protection service provider, offers SaaS-based data backup and recovery to on-premises software, cloud-native, and SaaS environments with data protection, disaster recovery, migration, and ransomware protection worldwide. With a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 91, its customers experience data security wherever they go. Its R-Cloud platform will support SaaS-based applications, databases, and services like Okta and Microsoft 365, Atlassian Jira Service Management, Atlassian Jira Software, Atlassian Confluence, Salesforce, Google BigQuery, Google Workspace, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud SQL, and Amazon RDS.
