Currently accepting beta access requests, Brinkbit lets developers build, test, and ship HTML5 games in the cloud.

Offering everything from analytics to IAP and licensing tools, Brinkbit just might be the hot new programming tool you’ve been looking for.
Also currently in development, deepstreamHub will allow developers to access deepstream.io’s functionality in the cloud. Features include real-time data syncing and storing, load-balanced RPC, top-level security for authentications and permissions, and multi-channel integrations from third party apps including Slack, Github, and Google Documents.
Now in public beta testing, CloudSploit offers continuous security scanning for AWS users. Offering both free and paid accounts, CloudSploit features include on-demand security scanning, background scans, infrastructure audit logs to ensure compliance, and unlimited AWS/user accounts. If you’re building upon the AWS cloud, CloudSploit should be on your must-investigate list.
Staying up-to-date on the latest in-development cloud tools for programmers is a fabulous way to keep your finger on the pulse of the exploding cloud technologies sector. Entrepreneurs are developing everything from IaaS tools to DRaas interfaces.

Beta registration is open for AI — a free, server management SaaS platform developed by SingleHop. Devops pros don’t always have the time or resources to monitor, patch and manage their cloud-based applications and operating systems. While there are plenty of RMM tools that deliver individual pieces, AI brings together comprehensive server management in one platform. Better yet, it allows users to import servers from any environment, including major public cloud providers.
