UForge Cloud Factory and Marketplace platform


We have negotiated a special agreement with UShareSoft, OW2 corporate member, who offers a Cloud Factory and Marketplace platform. UShareSoft's UForge allows to make OW2 open source projects  available as a high quality VM or server templates, ready to be published to any cloud infrastructure. 

Populate the UForge Marketplace with your OW2 Project

UShareSoft has deployed on June 2012 the UForge Marketplace

UShareSoft offers OW2 projects the possibility to populate the UForge Marketplace with VM appliances containing OW2 projects. It is an opportunity for OW2 project leaders to allow end users to have a simple pre-configured access to OW2 projects.

UShareSoft partners closely with IaaS vendors and the cloud distribution channel who use the UForgeMarketplace Front to power their own store. As the UForge Marketplace becomes available on more partner sites, you'll expand your visibility to their customer base.
