Adobe takes LiveCycle tools to Amazon's cloud

The software maker taps Amazon's EC2 and S3 service for a sandbox environment that lets enterprise developers build and test using LiveCycle without installing it.

This was originally published at ZDNet's Between the Lines.

Adobe Systems said Monday that it will make its LiveCycle ES Developer Express software available on Amazon Web Services.

With the move, Adobe is using Amazon's EC2 and S3 service to create a development environment for enterprise developers to develop and test using LiveCycle without installing it. The goal appears to be to give enterprise developers a sandbox in which to play with LiveCycle. Think try before you buy.

LiveCycle combines data capture, information assurance, process management, and content services to create rich applications.

As for Amazon Web Services, Adobe joins enterprise partners such as Salesforce.com, Oracle, Red Hat/JBoss, and Sun/MySQL.
