"We have just added a SpagoBI template to UShareSoft's Marketplace," said Marc Sallieres, CEO, Altic. "As an integrator, we need to find new ways to reach users and the Marketplace will enable us to increase our distribution channels, as well as simplify the delivery of apps to cloud with an easy "choose and click" interface."
"We have just joined UShareSoft's Solution Partners program and are happy to launch our own app store today," said Pierre Vacherand, CTO, Apalia. "We anticipate that the store will accelerate cloud adoption and help us reduce time to market by providing our customers with a larger catalog of customized IT solutions."
"The cloud services market is exploding with new offerings," said Mike Michalik, CEO of Cirrhus9. "The UForge product from UShareSoft allows users to seamlessly deploy their server and application environment to the cloud providers of their choosing. This feature, along with the ability to deploy an app store, insulates our customers from the ever changing cloud provider landscape."
"Successful cloud providers will make it easy for customers to obtain and operate the applications users want," said Matt Lull, Sr Dir Strategic Alliances, Cloud, Citrix. "UForge, with Citrix CloudPlatform and Cloud Portal, offers an integrated solution for ISVs and IT departments to automate application packaging, discovery, merchandizing, provisioning and lifecycle management in a cloud environment."
"We've just created our own marketplace for IT applications using UForge," said Raphael Ferreira, CEO, eNovance. "We are confident that this will enable our customers and partners to increase revenue by providing end users with an easy-to-use catalog of applications."
"UForge Marketplace meets a real enterprise customer need by easing the delivery of software and applications to their on-premise cloud," said David Butler, SVP of Marketing, Eucalyptus. "By combining an on-premise Eucalyptus cloud with UForge, enterprises can give software engineering teams their own on-demand deliver platform and provide end users with a managed store of corporate-certified applications."
"As companies begin to implement private and public clouds in Japan, they need to consider how best to deliver software to their cloud," said Satoru Watanabe, CEO, Maximize/UShareSoft Japan. "UShareSoft's UForge is an essential component for simplifying application delivery and we anticipate it will help accelerate enterprise cloud adoption here."
"Enterprise customers must be able to maintain consistency of their application stacks across cloud environments," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP Sales and Marketing, Nimbula. "Using UForge App Store on top of Nimbula Director, customers can build and maintain their images for easy provisioning of approved application stacks, delivering software governance while keeping VM sprawl under control."
"We are partnering with UShareSoft to offer OW2's open source community members access to a dedicated OW2 space in UForge Marketplace partner section," said Cédric Thomas, OW2 CEO. "Making their software available through the store is a great opportunity for our project leaders to gain greater visibility, and find new users."
"We are very proud of being the first UShareSoft Premier partner in Japan, and we're planning to launch our new application marketplace in September," said Mr. Jun Kawamura, General Manager, Cloud Integration Dept., SCSK Corporation. "With UForge, we will complete our product portfolio with new innovative cloud services, and enable our customers to onboard software more easily to our USiZE netXCloud offering."
"We are working with many organisations to design and deliver their clouds and one of the common issues that comes up time and time again is the need to assemble, create and maintain virtual machine templates. The self-provisioning aspect of a cloud model is a massive driver of efficiency, but if organisations have to manually build and manage a large pool of templates, these gains are reduced," said Giles Sirett, Managing Consultant, ShapeBlue. "UForge Marketplace addresses this issue directly, helping our customers automatically onboard software to their cloud."
