Alpha Anywhere Speeds Development and Deployment of Secure, Scalable Mobile and Web Business Apps with Cloud Hosting in IBM DataCenters from ZebraHost

ZebraHost makes it easy to put Alpha Anywhere mobile and web business apps in the cloud with a wide range of scalable solutions and services

September 11, 2013 BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Alpha Software today announced that partner ZebraHost is offering cloud hosting solutions in IBM DataCenters for applications developed in Alpha AnywhereTM. Alpha Anywhere is a complete and rapid development environment for building and deploying HTML5 and hybrid applications that run on mobile devices, PCs, Macs, laptops and touch-enabled computers. Alpha Anywhere is designed to bridge the gap in mobile business application development by empowering developers with a broad range of skills to rapidly produce robust applications.

"Because of Alpha we were able to get the app built in a small fraction of the time versus what other tools would have taken and we would have missed the window of opportunity."

ZebraHost offers a wide range of solutions to easily deploy mobile and web apps in the cloud, and can scale from single-cloud instances to dedicated servers to highly secure, private cloud options. With customer applications running in 140 countries on data centers in multiple continents, ZebraHost is a top choice for developers using Alpha Anywhere to build complete HTML5 mobile and web applications.

Alpha Anywhere is a standards-based environment that dramatically reduces the cost, time and complexity of developing and deploying scalable, business applications for today's mobile and personal computing era. Complete applications that support all screen sizes (from 4 inches to 4 feet) can be rapidly assembled using Alpha Anywhere's rich set of simple, intuitive, standards-based components; or developers can build their own objects, methods, components and event handlers using standard programming languages. Quickly making its mark on the HTML5 development space, Alpha Anywhere recently was called by IDG Enterprise's CITEworld one of the best tools for building and deploying killer business mobile apps.

Numerous applications built on Alpha are already hosted by ZebraHost:

  • is an innovative legal application that is changing the practice of immigration law. Tom Williams, CEO of states, "These new cloud servers are truly extraordinary. We have seen 2 to 3 times speed improvements and this will have a major, positive impact on our business." [See Press Release]
  • PetSitClick is a global online business solution for dog walking and pet sitting companies that handles hundreds of thousands of transactions daily. The APPA (American Pet Products Association) estimates that over $4 Billion dollars will be spent in North America on pet sitting and dog walking. "The combination of these two companies has allowed us to build a powerful, feature-rich software product on a responsive, scalable architecture. We feel secure that our site and its data are in great hands, and as we continue to grow we know we have made the right choice in both Alpha and ZebraHost," said Scott Moore, Co-Founder, PetSitClick.
  • is a Software-as- a-Service app that streamlines the school directory, reporting and fund raising process for thousands of schools and parents. "Because we already had an existing customer base our app took off faster than we anticipated. Zebrahost was right there with us getting new servers up within a couple of hours (even on the weekend) and helping us tweak the configuration for maximum load balancing," said Jay Oken, President, He also stated, "Because of Alpha we were able to get the app built in a small fraction of the time versus what other tools would have taken and we would have missed the window of opportunity."
  • Race Administration Systems (RAS), helps race organizers manage all aspects of their events, from registration to results. RAS was recently used at both the Los Angeles Marathon, with more than 20,000 participants, and at the Philadelphia's Broad Street Run, with more than 40,000 runners. [See Press Release]
  • More than 25 Bell Canada franchise stores in Canada run their entire business using Alpha Anywhere.
