Adobe Offers Hosted Dev Tools Through Amazon's 'Cloud'

software Web Services

On Monday, Adobe said it's offering Adobe LiveCycle ES Developer Express, an on-demand version of its Adobe LiveCycle ES development toolset, through AWS to members of its developer program. Tapping into the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) technologies, the service provides a complete environment for prototyping, developing and testing applications.

AWS is quickly becoming a popular platform for software vendors to offer hosted versions of their products. In September, Oracle announced that customers could license the Oracle 11g Database, Fusion Middleware and other Oracle products to run on Amazon EC2. In October, Amazon said customers could configure their Amazon EC2 to run the Windows operating system with Microsoft's SQL Server database as an option.

The hosted Adobe LiveCycle ES Developer Express is preconfigured to run server instances on the Amazon EC2 server, according to Adobe. That means developers can work with the development software without the need to install and configure it themselves.

The Adobe LiveCycle ES Developer Express is available now for members of the Adobe Enterprise Developer Program as part of their annual subscription fee. That fee starts at $1,495 for a single contact, $4,995 for five developer contacts and $7,995 for 10 developer contacts.
