ServInt’s Jelastic cloud service is first North American public PaaS to offer Apache TomEE

/ Reston, Va.

ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed cloud hosting for businesses worldwide, today announced the latest in a series of planned upgrades to its auto-scaling Java and PHP Jelastic cloud service: the addition of Apache TomEE. Apache TomEE is one of the fastest and the most user-friendly, enterprise-ready application servers available.

“We are fulfilling a promise we made in concert with Jelastic last year to bring TomEE and Java EE compliance to our cloud platform,” said ServInt CTO Matt Loschert. “Jelastic is quickly becoming the go-to cloud service for Java programmers, and TomEE is the natural next step.”

David Blevins, founder of the TomEE project, said, “Jelastic’s support of Tomcat has always been top-notch, and its support of TomEE demonstrates true vision. TomEE joins the family of Tomcat, Glassfish, Jetty, Apache and NGINX already offered by Jelastic.”

Blevins added, “Jelastic isn’t simply combining the usual suspects into a platform that is identical to all other cloud platforms. They have put a significant amount of time into offering TomEE users the best experience possible. It’s very tightly integrated with the functionality of all the other layers of their stack, including load-balancing, replication, persistence to SQL or NoSQL databases, and more. Jelastic’s integration of TomEE is the best I’ve seen.”

Unlike other JEE application servers, TomEE avoids architecture overhead and stays lightweight and as simple as possible. With TomEE in ServInt’s Jelastic cloud, developers benefit from:

— A streamlined, enterprise-ready application server.

— An environment familiar to Tomcat users.

— Embedded OpenEJB, making testing EJBs a snap.

— Full compatibility with most Tomcat-aware and Tomcat-tested tools.

— The ability for servlets to now get access to JPA and Transactions.

— The ability to view or modify any Tomcat-provided resource files.
