Citrix & WaveMaker - A Little Leverage Goes a Long Way

Citrix and WaveMaker's Partnership to Deliver a Complete Cloud Development Platform is Gaining Attention

Citrix and WaveMaker's partnership to deliver a complete cloud development platform is gaining attention.

This week, John Abbott of the 451 Group wrote a piece on how the Citrix Cloud Center strategy is coming together, thanks to a little help from WaveMaker (registration required).

The Citrix/WaveMaker development and test solution gives Cloud Hosting Providers a way to build a cloud ecosystem that will help them attract and retain customers. As John says:

"Telcos and service providers want the elbow room to differentiate their services from competitors by adding their own intellectual property."

With WaveMaker's cloud development platform, Cloud Hosting Providers make it easy for developers to build applications that deploy seamlessly to their cloud and can take advantage of their unique services for security, scalability and manageability.

Finally, the 451 Group points out that WaveMaker gives Citrix an easy-to-use PaaS solution that can leverage the Citrix cloud stack, much as SpringSource can leverage the VMWare stack. All in all, WaveMaker is shaping up as a game changer for cloud solution providers!
