Clearquest support with AWS or Azure cloud in a container based model

Hi Team,

We at Cadence are heading in the direction to move most/all of our applications to Cloud Based solutions. IBM ClearQuest is a widely used application within Cadence and is one of our top applications considered for this move.

Please let us know the information that you would want from us to work on this enhancement.

    We don't see a reason why CQ cannot be hosted on AWS or Azure. Are there some specific new features you are looking for in conjunction with this request? For example, certain operations may only be performed from a CQ Windows or Eclipse client, or the command line - schema design, user administration, etc. You should still be able to perform those operations with CQ hosted in AWS or Azure. Is the request that we test and bless this deployment pattern?
