Reduce the cost of your Java infrastructure by more than 50% using jSleep from Waratek

Release memory from your Java applications when they are not in use

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo -- Imagine if, when your data center applications weren't in use, they could go to sleep, just like your laptop does when you're not using it.  Just think how much money you could save on your infrastructure.

Well with jSleep you can.  Announced today at Gartner Symposium ITXpo, is a revolutionary new development from Waratek, specialists in Java virtualization.  jSleep allows applications to go into 'sleep mode' when not in use, freeing up memory resource that can be automatically assigned to other applications.  When an application is required, it immediately calls upon the resources it needs and is available for live usage.

"jSleep applied to the JVM is an intriguing new take on turning off resources when they aren't being used," said John Abbott, Distinguished Analyst at 451 Research. "It's a concept that was never widely taken up when applied at the system level to servers. The exact benefit would depend on how heavily the application portfolio is being used, but clients in the financial community tell us it's not uncommon for up to 70% of applications on a system to be idle at any one time."

"jSleep works in your data center, in the same way as closing the lid on your laptop," says John Matthew Holt, founder and CTO, Waratek.  "Your users will see no degradation of performance but you will be able to make better use of your resources by sharing them across your applications." 

Waratek were recently voted Top Global Innovator by the SWIFT member community and senior innovation executives of global financial institutions, as the most promising Innovator likely to shape the development of the financial sector.

Waratek can be found at booth 118 in Atlantic Hall at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2013, Orlando, Florida
