Announcing the Availability of APLcloud
Working in partnership with Automatonics Inc., a USA corporation specialising in Dyalog and web hosting, APLcloud has been developed with a primary focus on APL as a Service through APLcloud.com. Leveraging the Amazon AWS global data centres, APLcloud offers commercial-grade Dyalog servers and MiServer web hosting services to rent on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Engineered from the ground up by APLers and for APLers, APLcloud.com offers a full range of Dyalog hosting services. Customers can start with a simple shared web hosting plan that uses FTP to upload MiServer web pages and can grow their application, as needed, into fully-dedicated Microsoft Windows or Linux servers that include a commercial licence for Dyalog. APLcloud services are pay-as-you-go, scalable and on-demand, ranging from 1 CPU up to 8 CPUs and 60 GB of RAM.
APLcloud's products and services can be used by anyone who needs APL applications to be accessed over the internet. The combination of Dyalog, MiServer and APLcloud opens the door to extending legacy APL applications as well as providing a new platform for advanced APL solutions.
Over the past few years, Automatonics has been working closely with Dyalog testing the MiServer web server platform. In addition to serving up web pages, APLcloud can configure MiServer as a web service connecting Dyalog over the Internet. Web services provide a robust and flexible way to integrate external web services and legacy systems with APL applications – including sending, and receiving, XML and JSON data.
