Device manufacturers and ecosystem owners can now launch Sirqul’s enterprise platform on the AWS Marketplace to rapidly develop, deploy, manage, and monetize IoT applications on the AWS Cloud and at the Edge, reducing costs and freeing their teams to focus on innovation.
SEATTLE, Feb. 22, 2016 — Sirqul, Inc., an enterprise class platform for rapid Internet of Things (IoT) application development, announced today, the immediate availability of Sirqul’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) stack on the Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace). Sirqul’s PaaS offering takes advantage of the recently announced AWS Marketplace Support for Clusters and AWS Resources, allowing AWS Marketplace users to easily launch AWS CloudFormation templates, defined by Sirqul, to optimally run their IoT platform.
Sirqul’s approach to providing platform solutions is novel. The company distilled common application features found in the most popular apps into services and ensured they work seamlessly with each other. This approach enables developers to combine these “ingredients” into custom IoT “recipes” faster and more cost effectively to generate more engagement and revenue. Sirqul’s APIs and services focus on driving engagement, efficiency, and enable transactions, both in the Cloud and at the Edge.
“The fact that people developing entrepreneurial ideas at startups or within large organizations can leverage our platform after filling out a simple form and clicking a submit button is truly awesome,” says Sirqul CEO and Founder Robert Frederick. “Our goal is to speed up the process that decision makers currently go through when choosing our enterprise platform solution. Partnering with AWS Marketplace Support for Clusters and AWS Resources with AWS CloudFormation functionality helps us achieve this goal, as enterprise decision makers tend to already have internal buy-in and authorization to run on the AWS Cloud. This means they can now choose and deploy our solution with minimal friction and approval.””
Developers select AWS CloudFormation templates pre-defined by Sirqul and in most cases are able to have an application prototype running within days or weeks, depending upon the complexity involved. Sirqul also offers 30 skinnable, pre-made recipes that each utilize subsets of its 60+ services, along with documentation, tutorials, and guides.
“Using or building on top of proven recipes for Smart Home/Communities, Smart Vehicle, Connected Healthcare and Connected Retail allows companies to focus on innovating,” said Luis Cifuentes, Chief Operating Officer at Sirqul. “The recipes can be easily branded and customized to serve different needs, across multiple verticals. We are excited to be in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress and look forward to seeing all those interested in IoT and Edge computing at our booth.” Visit Sirqul’s booth at MWC, located at pavilion 8.1B58 in Hall 8.1, to learn more about Sirqul and the AWS Marketplace offerings.
Headquartered in Seattle, WA, Sirqul is led by Robert Frederick, one of the original technical founders of Amazon’s first forays into Secure Mobile Commerce (Amazon Anywhere) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Sirqul enables the rapid conceptualization, development, deployment, and monetization of branded, connected IoT applications. Their approach builds upon decades of thought for what connected networks of devices with different capabilities can accomplish and supports multiple verticals, as well as the emergence of solutions and applications companies have yet to think of.
