Visual WebGui to Reveal Cloud Application Platform

Developers can now deploy their apps to Windows Azure with the click of a button

Azure Cloud on Ulitzer

Gizmox, the developer of  Visual WebGui, today announced that it will reveal  its  application platform atop Windows Azure and its development framework,  VWG platforms offers a push-button .NET desktop legacy application migration path to Windows Azure. With VWG enterprises will be able to migrate to Windows Azure, by reusing their existing Windows software code on Windows Azure without re-write or re-engineering. The process is as simple as copying and pasting the Windows code into VWG, selecting Windows Azure run in VWG SDK, and run.

"With our unique unrivalled legacy applications migration to Windows Azure, and the ability to run them as responsive as and as rich as desktop's, with proven unhackable security, we have crossed a new threshold," said Navot Peled, CEO of Gizmox, "While everyone is talking about the cloud, we're working with Microsoft to bring our solution to enterprises that are looking at migration to the Windows Azure cloud here and now. We also enable the fast development, desktop's performance, and richness and security benefits to newly built cloud applications"

According to Advanced Telemetry Founder and CTO Tom Naylor who used Visual WebGui, "we successfully built an enterprise application on Windows Azure that enables applications to be developed with a lot less financial investment" and which can "quickly achieve what, a year ago, would have taken more people, more money, and a lot more time. It's going to open up applications of sorts we've never seen before."  The ease of using Visual WebGui was a key benefit.  Noted Taylor, "There was no learning curve with VisualWeb Gui.  To a Windows developer, it is very natural, very drag-and-drop, and you don't get bogged down in tables and style sheets and other HTML artifacts."

Among the key benefits highlighted by Visual WebGui, its new platform will consume 50% CPU and 10% bandwidth compare to other solutions, resulting in additional dramatic cost saving benefits for users.  The company is about to release assessment tools that will allow proper cloud planning and managing: pre-deployment calculating of cloud running costs, remote monitoring, tracing and reconfiguring for application optimization and provisioning.
