AppScale Launches As An Open-Source Backup Equivalent To Google App Engine

ScaleSafe, the company’s first product, automates the failover and migration of cloud apps and data from GAE. Company Co-founder and CTO Chandra Krintz calls the service a portability layer between a developer’s app and cloud services.

Krintz said the AppScale platform supports standard services such as NoSQL storage, SQL storage, object/blog storage, data caching, authentication, full text search, background multitasking, MapReduce and other services.
