Apprenda has announced that SaaSGrid has moved from closed Beta to public availability today. I had the pleasure of interviewing Sinclair Schuller, Apprenda’s CEO to learn more about SaaSGrid recently. It’s a fascinating offering, and I can definitely see how it makes it easier to create new SaaS applications. Apprenda calls SaaSGrid a “Cloud Operating System.” I don’t know if I would call it that or not, but at the very least it is a SaaS platform that offers a lot of benefits not unlike Force.com from Salesforce, but with some key differences. First and foremost in my mind, is that there isn’t much of anything proprietary about SaaSGrid.
