Cloud Native Apps

WHY CENTURYLINK

Build Applications
Not Infrastructure

Today, developers spend too much time on configuring servers, load balancers and other infrastructure services.

With CenturyLink AppFog® Cloud Foundry®, development teams have easy access to an integrated application framework, platform runtime and infrastructure automation, which frees them to focus on writing code and delivering great apps, instead of configuring infrastructure.

Freedom from Infrastructure Maintenance and Configuration
Application services like CenturyLink AppFog manage the infrastructure for you, so you are free to focus on your app. You won’t have to bother with provisioning servers, patching the OS, setting up middleware or configuring load balancers.

Improve Speed and Agility
Push modern cloud applications to our highly available, centralised services fabric that deploys in seconds! With this approach, your application will automatically load balance and scale. Further, Cloud Foundry includes a growing library of third-party services that accelerate your application deployment and management efforts.
