AppHub is powered by UForge

UForge is the technology that powers AppHub. UForge automates application delivery and management for any virtual datacenter, and public, private or hybrid clouds. By consolidating the full software stack into a single, integrated software template it is an efficient solution to automatically build, replicate and run simple applications or complex IT solutions across hybrid cloud and virtual environments. 

UForge consists of three main modules — Factory, Market Place and Migration — for building, maintaining and delivering software to cloud. UForge Studio provides additional services for software configuration.

UForge Market Place

The UForge Market Place offers an appstore of pre-packaged software stacks for self-service on-boarding to any cloud. The Market Place offers the following features:
o Browse and search: Users can search by name, OS, category, and publisher, or view by date, rating and popularity
o “One-click run”: Instantly publish and run templates on a specific cloud
o Social networking: Users can rate, review and follow individual templates
o Publisher rights: Engineering teams and ISVs can upload and delete templates, and respond to user reviews.

o OS updates & rollback: UForge maintains a repository of all native Linux OS packages, updated dai-ly
o Just enough Operating System (JeOS): Automatically optimize the Linux OS footprint to include on-ly those packages required for boot-up

UForge Migration

UForge Migration supports:
o Scan live systems: UForge deep scans live servers and reports back all components, packages and li-censes
o Instant migration: Simply replicate an identical server complete with the necessary drivers etc. for your cloud
o Incremental scans: Schedule incremental scans to see at a glance what changes have been made Any OS; Any Cloud
o Import the scan into your Factory for customization

UForge supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSuSE, Scientific Linux and Windows Server. It also supports all leading cloud technologies: Windows Azure, VMware, Apache
