The Autonomic Resources Team has been hard at work building, streamlining, and standardizing a Platform as a Service offering for developing applications in the cloud. This offering features unparalleled security and elasticity for agencies. Read below to learn more about the features and capabilities of this solution, ARCWRX, and determine if you need an evaluation by our expert team.

ARCWRX provides developers a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) built onOpenShift by Red Hat.ARCWRX allows users to develop, host, manage, and scale applications in a FedRAMP accredited cloud environment. By moving these technologies to the cloud, developers are not responsible for the underlying cloud infrastructure, security, or business continuity planning of the platform. The developer can spend less time managing infrastructure and more time doing what they do best: innovating. With over 1 million apps created, 250,000 currently running, and 2,000 being created every day, ARCWRX enables increased productivity and stability.

Auto Scaling

Our ARCWRX PaaS cloud solution allows agencies to scale applications automatically to handle increased traffic and demand on your applications.
