Introducing IBM Quick Deployer

We’re delighted to announce that IBM Quick Deployer version 1.2 is available, free to download and use from under a “Non-warranted Program” license. You can see more details on version 1.2 here.

IBM Quick Deployer is installation and deployment automation for IBM’s Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) and Continuous Engineering (CE) Solutions 6.0.2, 6.0.1 and CLM 6.0 on Red Hat Linux 6.6+ using UrbanCode Deploy (UCD). It can be used to deploy CLM onto user-supplied VMs, either locally or in the cloud, including the installation and configuration of the supporting middleware (Websphere Application Server and DB2).

Quick Deployer supports the Jazz Standard Deployment Topologies. However since it uses a UCD-provided tagging mechanism (see below), users can easily distribute their applications across their servers, so many different topologies are possible. Currently only one instance of each Jazz application is supported per topology.


The detailed system requirements and limitations of version 1.2 of IBM Quick Deployer are detailed in the documentation. Only fresh install is supported at the moment; upgrade is something we would like to support in the future as is support for other platforms.

IBM Quick Deployer is developed and used internally by the CLM DevOps pipeline team. It has provided us with a flexible mechanism for building topologies and easily switching between deployment platforms. We hope you will find it useful and we’ll be very interested to hear your feedback.
