Waratek Makes Java the Programming Choice for Cloud Delivery

Share Article

Applications developed pre-Cloud do not reap the benefits associated with Cloud delivery. At Java One today Waratek launch their Cloud VM for Java which takes existing applications and imbues them with all the key Cloud features including multitenancy and elasticity.

The Waratek Cloud VM for Java helps not only Java but any JVM based languages including Clojure, Groovy, Python, Ruby and Scala’.

Waratek founder and CTO John Matthew Holt saw that the existing Java architecture would need to be re-designed if it was to provide the benefits associated with Cloud based computing. So he put a team together to re-architect the JVM and make it 'Cloud Ready'. With more than 50 patents already issued and more pending, Waratek have now made their Cloud VM for Java available for general release.

‘By modifying the JVM, Waratek have overcome the restrictions that most programming languages face when they try to gain the benefits of Cloud delivery. This breakthrough development secures the future of Java and JVM based languages for the next 30 years of Cloud based computing’ says Holt.

In a recent webcast Gartner distinguished Analyst Yefim Natis looked at the issues facing organizations in how they can preserve their investment in applications and skills while making use of key cloud characteristics including multitenancy and elasticity. Natis says 'The cloud is multitenant, applications are not. The cloud is elastic, applications on-premise are not.'

‘Most applications were developed before the Cloud and aren’t able to make use of the immense cost savings that delivering applications in a Cloud environment offer. The Waratek Cloud VM for Java offers a binary compatible route to the Cloud with no programming changes necessary. The Waratek Cloud VM for Java helps not only Java but any JVM based languages including Clojure, Groovy, Python, Ruby and Scala’ says Holt.

The Waratek Cloud VM for Java is available to download now with a free 30 day trial period.

Waratek are exhibiting at JavaOne - Booth 5004 and Oracle OpenWorld - Booth 536 from October 1st - 3rd
