DreamFactory Software, creator of DreamFactory – an open source REST API backend for mobile, web, and IoT applications, has announced the release of DreamFactory Enterprise. A new commercial software package, DreamFactory Enterprise would give users the ability to easily deploy, manage and transport multiple instances of DreamFactory across the entire application development lifecycle.
Designed for enterprise development and IT teams, software development agencies, systems integrators (SIs), independent software vendors (ISVs), managed service providers (MSPs), and cloud hosting Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) companies, DreamFactory Enterprise empowers development teams to provision, govern and report on DreamFactory instances so they can accelerate modern application development and deployment on a well-governed infrastructure.
“DreamFactory has become a fundamental piece of software located right at the heart of the new stack. Very simply, it connects any data source to any device in seconds. Developers love the fact that this is free, open source software that be installed on any cloud or server,” said Bill Appleton, CEO of DreamFactory. “But enterprise customers looking for API standardization, automation, compliance, and governance need a better way to manage multiple instances of the open source product across the development lifecycle. And so we’re thrilled to introduce DreamFactory Enterprise to address that need.”
DreamFactory released the DreamFactory REST API backend as open source on GitHub under the Apache license. With its ability to “automatically and securely” expose REST API endpoints for a wide range of data sources, the DreamFactory backend has been widely adopted. Hundreds of thousands of developers now use DreamFactory to get secured, RESTful access to data while cutting development time and costs.
As with other open source software (OSS) companies such as Docker, MongoDB, Elastic, CoreOS, Mesosphere and NGINX, DreamFactory is building on successful developer-led adoption of its open source software. DreamFactory Enterprise would allow the company to grow and move forward without compromising the original open source software stack on which developers depend to provide RESTful services.
