SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 9 -- WaveMaker, the leading visual development platform for Web applications, today announced WaveMaker Cloud Edition. WaveMaker Cloud Edition is the first open source, integrated development environment (IDE) for cloud computing. WaveMaker Cloud Edition lets anyone quickly build great-looking Web applications that deploy to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
"WaveMaker eliminates proprietary lock-in for developing cloud applications," said Christopher Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. "Now anyone can quickly and easily create and deploy Web applications on-site or to the cloud."
With WaveMaker Cloud Edition, developers use a visual, drag and drop studio to create full business applications in a browser without needing to install any software onto the desktop. Because WaveMaker Cloud is hosted by Amazon EC2, deploying applications to the cloud has never been easier.
"WaveMaker is changing the dynamics of cloud computing by bringing to market an open, Java environment that's easy-to-use and delivers maximum deployment flexibility," said Roger Sippl, industry veteran and founder of Sippl Investments.
Continues Keene, "WaveMaker Cloud Edition also provides an excellent way for any Java ISV to modernize and SaaS-enable their applications."
Now Java ISVs Can SaaS-Enable Their Applications
WaveMaker Cloud Edition is the ideal SaaS-enablement solution for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who use Java. WaveMaker Cloud provides the complete package of features necessary for an online application, including:
"WaveMaker's approach to visual development makes it easy to build and deploy Web-based business applications," said Raven Zachary, contributing analyst for The 451 Group. "With the launch of WaveMaker Cloud Edition, they are introducing an open source solution that brings easy development and deployment to cloud computing."
Amazon EC2 and WaveMaker
"WaveMaker is an enterprise development platform that anyone can use," said Chris Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. "We chose Amazon EC2 because they have the best solution to address the security and scalability issues of our enterprise users."
Availability and Pricing
WaveMaker Cloud Edition beta version is available immediately at www.wavemaker.com/cloud. Pricing will be announced at general availability, anticipated in the first half of 2009.

The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
