Blue Box Intros \Blue Box Intros "Trade Up" Managed Cloud Application Hosting PromoTired of your current managed cloud application hosting platform provider? You're in luck, as Blue Box is now offering a "Trade Up" program that offers, for a limited time only, a 50-percent discount on standard recurring monthly service fees for the first three months of an annual contract.

This discount only applies to new customers who switch from another cloud application hosting platform provider.

"With nearly 600 clients including MTV, VH1, Seeking Alpha, Pivotal Tracker, Agawi, and Crowdstar, Blue Box provides a highly automated application infrastructure that enables customers to focus their energy on building and improving their Web applications," the company said.

Blue Box owns and manages its entire infrastructure stack, thus the company is able to remediate issues significantly faster than the typical hosting provider. "Blue Box's ownership of the hardware infrastructure illustrates its core philosophy and commitment to owning the entire customer experience and assists in providing unparalleled 'white-glove' service," Blue Box added.

Blue Box leverages an assortment of open source technologies including OpenStack, EMC Razor and Opscode's Chef coupled with Blue Box intellectual property and technologies. Thus this new "Trade Up" promotion showcases all the benefits a Blue Box solution has to offer. It even shows your Ruby, Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python, and Node.js app "the love it deserves", the company said.

"The past few months have seen a number of critical data center outages which brought a number of high profile Web applications to their knees. Every minute that an application is down, someone is losing money and potentially customers," added Jesse Proudman, CEO of Blue Box. "Blue Box maintains one of the highest uptime rates in the industry."
