WaveMaker 6.1 Delivers Cloud Portability to Citizen Developers

Easy-To-Use Cloud Development Platform Supports Multiple Clouds

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—May xx, 2010—WaveMaker Software™, the only open and easy-to-use cloud development platform, today announced that it has released version 6.1 of its platform, adding one-click deployment to Rackspace Cloud, OpSource Cloud, and Eucalyptus Private Cloud.

"With their latest release, WaveMaker is leading the way in offering an open and easy-to-use cloud development platform that delivers portability across multiple clouds."

    "Before today, the complexity of deploying applications to the cloud has meant that only expert developers were able to take advantage of cloud computing," said Chris Keene, CEO of WaveMaker.

    "With this release, WaveMaker has eliminated the complexity of building and deploying portable cloud applications, opening up the benefits of cloud computing to citizen developers."
