If you follow this blog, you know we keep hearing people talk about simplicity when discussing app servers and architectures. We certainly heard this at JavaOne and also at VMworld, but it’s been popular for a while.
The fact is that traditional Java EE (JEE) app servers bring complexity to the mix. In addition, they are costly and consume a lot of resources. Forrester wrote an article in 2011 about the costs saying, “Use Apache Tomcat. It is free.” IDC’s research from 2011 points how enterprises are moving “toward lower-cost application platforms that shift them closer to private, public, and hybrid cloud offerings.” Of course, you can find plenty of historical posts and debates from practitioners on costs and resources from past years.
If you are looking at middleware support for mobile apps, in-memory databases, auto-scaling, and virtual/cloud infrastructure, then you might want to check out our webinar coming up on Thursday, October 25th. In this session, we will cover quite a bit about vFabric tc Server:
- It’s foundation on Apache Tomcat
- Added capabilities to improve developer productivity, monitoring, and management
- Support for physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure
- Determining whether to move to VMware vFabric tc Server
- Recommended tc Server architecture
- tc Server support for mobile applications
- Rapid diagnosis of performance problems
- Implementing auto-recovery and auto-scaling
- Integrating tc Server with in-memory data grids
- Maximizing tc Server density on virtual infrastructure
We hope you can join us for this webinar on Thursday, October 25th at 9am PT.
