Cassatt Automates Java App Virtualization

Quoting Virtualization-Sys-Con

Cassatt Corporation, announced general availability of the new Cassatt Collage Web Automation Module (WAM), software that helps IT organizations with their server consolidation efforts by providing Java application virtualization and management for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. 

Cassatt is enabling IT organizations – starting with those running BEA WebLogic Server 8.1-based applications – to change their assumptions about the return they can get on their IT investments. These new economics will enable organizations to innovate and deliver new capabilities to support their business for a fraction of what they thought possible.

The new Cassatt WAM solution enables IT departments to keep their capital expenditures to a minimum and drastically reduce operational costs, while driving up utilization of the hardware and software that organizations already have. Organizations have traditionally set aside dedicated application resources sufficient to handle peak loads, meaning that as much as 90 percent of their resources sit idle most of the time, waiting for infrequent load spikes.

 The Cassatt solution creates a virtual pool of an organization’s Java application resources – hardware, operating systems, and middleware – freeing them to be used by all applications. Then, the Cassatt software automatically, and without human intervention, matches applications to appropriate computing resources in order to maintain the service levels that the business requires of each of their critical Java applications.

The new Cassatt WAM software provides specific, automated management and control capabilities for applications built using BEA WebLogic Server 8.1. The pooling of virtual resources breaks the tight coupling between J2EE applications, BEA WebLogic Server, and hardware, helping maximize existing resources. The Cassatt software also automates many of the steps that organizations must currently handle manually to keep applications built on BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 or other J2EE application servers running optimally.

WAM is available for the Linux and Solaris operating systems.
