Mainframe2 Launches World's First Platform for Graphics Apps as a Service

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2014) - Mainframe2, an emerging leader in cloud computing, announced immediate availability of its revolutionary cloud service this week at AWS re:Invent 2014. With Mainframe2, developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) can instantly transform their Windows desktop software into Software-as-a-Service and deliver it to users everywhere.

"Until now, it's been very difficult for makers of rich graphics apps to expand to the cloud. Mainframe2 makes it easy," said Dr. Nikola Bozinovic, founder and CEO of Mainframe2. "We built the first self-service, global, production-ready platform that provides end-to-end support to customers on their journey to SaaS. There's nothing like it on the market."

Leading to the launch, Mainframe2 worked with hundreds of software developers and publishers worldwide including Adobe, Configura, and nuPSYS. During development the company found that the problems of distributing rich graphics applications from the cloud could not be attacked piecemeal.

Consequently, Mainframe2 built onboarding, orchestration, app store, and e-commerce layers as part of a single comprehensive architecture, enabling it to offer service levels no one else matches. This systems approach also allows customers to connect third party components, like storage (e.g. Dropbox) or identity services (e.g. Active Directory), to work seamlessly within the core platform.

"Mainframe2 enabled us to add cloud services to our product line without having to write a single line of code," said Dmitry Bokotey, founder and CTO of nuPSYS, whose software visualizes complex enterprise networks. "The graphics and streaming performance are fantastic, and the built-in app store and e-commerce solutions cut down our time-to-market dramatically."

Mainframe2's unique technology enables high-fidelity delivery with no clients or plugins required.

"Our configuration and space planning software relies on high-performance 3D graphics, which we could not deliver from the cloud without Mainframe2," explained Tobias Wester, CIO of Configura. "The Mainframe2 platform delivers a whole new degree of flexibility to our customers and opens up a brand new set of opportunities for our business."

Mainframe2 platform is available immediately for all developers, with the service live around the world. To start, visit www.mainframe2.com.
