Apprenda, the leader in enterprise private platform-as-a-service, today
announced JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), a leading global financial
services firm with assets of $2.4 trillion and operations worldwide, has
selected Apprenda’s platform to develop, deliver and manage its portfolio of
internal applications, custom-built in .NET and Java. This significant deal is
the largest private PaaS implementation to date, setting a benchmark for how
enterprises modernize and deliver data-sensitive private cloud applications.

JPMorgan Chase chose Apprenda’s best of breed private PaaS as a way to reduce
costs, achieve faster time to market for applications and standardize and
modernize their application architectures.

“JPMorgan Chase needed an enterprise grade private cloud solution to
accelerate our time to market for applications, improve our infrastructure
efficiency and increase our developer productivity,”said JPMorgan Chase Chief
Information Officer Guy Chiarello. “We are pleased with our selection of
Apprenda’s product suite and look forward to realizing benefits across our
global portfolio.”

Today, Apprenda is powering JPMC’s internal applications vital to supporting
the firm’s financial product offerings. Apprenda is deployed at a number of
production sites globally and across growing server clusters already totaling
several terabytes of memory. More than 430 development teams are using the
platform for its 2000 .NET and Java applications, which are now running live.

Apprenda’s enterprise grade platform, plugged into JPMC’s existing IT
infrastructure, modernized it as a way to catapult the firm’s next generation
internal private cloud for both their .NET and Java applications. JPMC
benefits in the following ways from leveraging Apprenda:

  *Enterprise Grade – JPMC’s private cloud PaaS operates at scale for
    thousands of applications and provides guaranteed availability and global
    failover—integrating seamlessly with existing IT investments.
  *“Just Bring Your App” PaaS – removed the friction between developers and
    IT through single-click application deployment and isolated developers and
    their applications from the infrastructure.
  *Unprecedented Time to Market – application deployment was reduced from
    many weeks to fewer than five minutes per application.
  *Fine Cost Control – created a way to allocate and assign surface resources
    to developers on an internal “pay as you go” model to keep costs in check
    and maximize utilization.
  *Standardization of Productivity and Architecture Patterns – achieved an
    unprecedented ability to write hundreds of new custom applications per
    year that would leverage the platform and support common application
    management, in addition to offering platform services such as messaging
    and caching and cloud architecture patterns.
