Appistry, the ISV with the grid-based cloud application platform that's been focusing on in-house clouds like FedEx' and Lockheed Martin's, is extending its reach to so-called public clouds beginning with GoGrid and SkyTap.
Appistry's flagship Enterprise Application Fabric (EAF), which makes clouds useable, will be available on the low-level third-party infrastructures.
Initially it will be Appistry's freebie community software, which will offer users a maximum of 10 cores to conjure with.
Once GoGrid and SkyTap work out their per-hour utility pricing - probably by the end of the year - Appistry's larger EAF package will go on sale as part of the sites' bundled pricing, Appistry VP, product management and marketing Sam Charrington said.
Appistry has previously used a per-year per-CPU subscription model; it is now going to per-core pricing for both public and private clouds.
Its widgetry will let users access pre-configured versions of EAF Community Edition on windows or Linux and create VMs on-demand to scale out applications.
