AppFog Launches Private Cloud Beta

Portland-based AppFog, the provider of a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that helps developers deploy their applications in the cloud, said it has launched a Private Cloud Beta Program. The company said the move would allow customers to deploy its PaaS technology in their own, private clouds. AppFog said the program supports private cloud technology from OpenStack, CloudFoundry and Eucalyptus. AppFog is venture backed by Ignition partners, First Round Capital, and Madrona, and is headed by Lucas Carlson.
