Formation of Transcend Computing

I’m excited to announce that today, April 4th, our new company Transcend Computing will be emerging from stealth mode. In short, we are launching:

StackStudio is a visual, drag-and-drop online development environment for assembling multi-tier application topologies using the Amazon CloudFormation format. Application stacks assembled with StackStudio are ready to run on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and on other public and private ACE platforms.

These stacks can then be shared with other developers in StackPlace, which was also launched today as an open social architecture community sponsored by Transcend Computing. StackPlace allows developers to create, contribute, consume and collaborate on ACE-compatible application topologies.

This is an exciting time for the Momentum family. As most of you know, we’ve been incubating this program for the last couple of years. The initial offering is a SaaS solution used to create multi-part applications on AWS. In the coming months, we'll be introducing additional on-premise services. 

It's been fun to watch the transition from SOA to 'as-a-Service'. There's little doubt that cloud (IaaS/PaaS) is the new model for application development and deployment. This is one of those few areas where both engineers and executives can agree on a new paradigm. This recipe for success will unfold over the coming years - and we're excited to be leaders in this new movement.
