New DreamFactory Enterprise Application Development Portal Leverages Verizon Cloud

DreamFactory, creator of the open-source REST API backend for application developers, and Verizon Partner Solutions, announced today (Aug. 12) the launch of a new portal that provides developers with a “cloud-first” platform to create a wide range of enterprise applications.

The co-branded DreamFactory/Verizon Partner Solutions portal makes it easier for developers to deploy applications to a full cloud-hosted enterprise-scale production environment by providing free, cloud-hosted dedicated workspaces.

By integrating the capabilities of DreamFactory and the Verizon Cloud, developers have the ability to connect to multiple back-end databases and services, and auto-generate REST APIs to power their enterprise applications. “Securely accessing legacy data, particularly data in SQL databases, is a big challenge that constrains enterprise application development and innovation,” said Bill Appleton, CEO of DreamFactory Software. “The DreamFactory/Verizon Partner Solutions portal integrates our respective capabilities to simplify development and enable easy progression into production environments on Verizon’s enterprise-class cloud platform.”  

Key Highlights

  • Instant access to REST APIs for any data source, regardless of location
  • Multi-level security that offers a secure way to access data sources, including legacy databases, for development, test, and production
  • Access privileges are governed via multiple security mechanisms, including user management, single-sign on, and role-based and record-level access controls
  • Client SDKs for popular HTML5 and JavaScript frameworks, as well as native iOS and Android development
  • Easy progression into production environments on the Verizon Cloud via single-click installation of DreamFactory packaged by Bitnami

“As developers increasingly adopt cloud-first strategies, we are making it easier for them to rapidly access data and integrate APIs without having to migrate backend resources prior to development, testing and production,” said Quintin Lew, senior vice president of marketing, Verizon Partner Solutions. “The DreamFactory/Verizon Partner Solutions portal will accelerate the development of many enterprise applications that would otherwise require significant integration development resources.”
