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

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures.
