WaveMaker, Amazon, IBM and RightScale Team on Cloud Quickstart Program

WaveMaker, the leading open source cloud development platform, today announced the cloud quickstart program, a collaboration between IBM, Amazon Web Services, RightScale and WaveMaker to provide a complete cloud computing solution.

The cloud quickstart program is based on a reference architecture from IBM and best practices from other partners. The cloud quickstart architecture has been proven by IBM business partners like KANA and is backed by a 10,000-strong developer community.


The objective of the cloud quickstart program is to help developers migrate to cloud computing while protecting existing IT investments. Companies selected for the program by IBM's Developer Relations team receive a no-charge architectural review and technical support for a cloud proof of concept.

"RightScale is pleased to offer this turn-key solution with WaveMaker, IBM and Amazon. The IBM Cloud Quickstart Program provides a significantly faster and easier on-ramp to deploying your application on the cloud." said Josh Fraser, RightScale VP of Business Development.

"Enterprise and ISV developers are finding that traditional development approaches don't address fundamental cloud computing issues like cloud security, scalability and resilience," said Chris Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. "The cloud quickstart program fills in all the gaps in cloud computing, enabling developers to get applications deployed to the cloud in hours not months."

October events to promote the cloud quickstart program include webinars on Thursday, 10/15 and Tuesday, 10/20. These webinars feature hands-on demonstrations of building cloud-ready applications with WaveMaker and deploying them to Amazon EC2 using RightScale. Register for these webinars at
