Why Lean Application Servers Are Faster, Cheaper, and Better For Business

The application server has been the centerpiece of modern architectures for web-based applications for over a decade. However, there are trends in technology that make us rethink how we use application servers and how we can get the most value out of them.

Over the years enterprises have built up considerable technical debt. This debt is made up of outdated processes, legacy applications, and stale technologies. We are all familiar with the types of headaches caused by older apps:

  1. Development is slow.
  2. Costs continue to rise, not fall.
  3. Business needs are increasing in speed and complexity.

The good news are there are solutions today that solve all of these challenges. This post and accompanying video are aimed straight at helping you understand what will help you evolve your applications to a modern approach that will benefit your company and your customers alike. Using VMware and open source technologies such as Spring, Apache Tomcat, vSphere, Spring Insight and Hyperic we will explain to you how these tools and methodologies come together with tc Server to evolve your development organization and applications to tap into the full potential of lean development and cloud computing.

Canceling Debt with Agile Servers

Follow along as John Ferguson, a Senior Systems Engineer for VMware, explains the big picture of why companies are changing to lean development and then shows users how using a lean server like tc Server as their strategic center of applications will help them to build, run and manage applications in a more agile and cost effective way, ultimately helping them to get more out of their applications faster.

This video covers the principles above and dives into detail on Spring, tc Server, EM4J, in-memory data replication, and other tools that solve these challenges. A comprehensive video, it also includes several demos to help users see the benefits of developing lean. Demos include one of getting tc Server running on a VM in 60 seconds and another one on how you can use Hyperic to get your applications under management just as quickly.
