Cloud Technology Partners has launched the beta version of its PaaSLane software solution, a tool that dramatically reduces the time and effort required to optimise applications to run in the cloud.

PaaSLane automates cloud migration assessments and ensures its success by continually evaluating application source code for issues that may affect performance, stability, security, and scalability in specific cloud platforms.

"As cloud adoption accelerates, our customers are looking for ways to automate assessing for cloud readiness across hundreds of applications. Software development organisations need an effective way to clearly identify issues and estimate the effort required to optimise applications for the cloud," said John Treadway, senior vice president at Cloud Technology Partners. "PaaSLane finds issues and estimates the time required to address them in a matter of minutes, giving management an objective measure of cloud readiness across application portfolios, while providing development teams with a roadmap to start fixing them immediately."

The company's latest solution evaluates applications for cloud readiness, empowering IT and business leaders to look across entire application portfolios to prioritise applications to migrate based on development effort and code complexity. PaaSLane then guides developers in optimising Java and .NET applications for public and private cloud platforms by providing remediations for specific issues at the line-of-code. Finally, PaaSLane tracks the progress of development teams as issues are resolved, providing critical feedback to engineering leadership as well as improving code quality.

The tool uses static code analysis to analyse application source code, finding common patterns that might affect application performance, stability, security, and scalability in cloud deployments and provides recommendations based on cloud best practices. A flexible rules engine supports tuning the analysis to the specific requirements of a user's private cloud environment. The tool's open API is easy to integrate with continuous integration tools, allowing users to embed PaaSLane in the software development lifecycle. The software is capable of processing over 250,000 lines of code in less than 10 minutes, and parallel profiling allows multiple applications to be profiled simultaneously.
