‘Java in the Cloud’ Challenge Addressed at Red Hat Summit

July 16, 2012

Delegates at the Red Hat Summit 2012 heard John Matthew Holt, founder and CTO of Waratek, explain how the Waratek Cloud VM for Java was solving problems associated with running Java in the Cloud. A video of the event is now available where Holt discusses a game-changing solution, not just to genuine multitenancy but to metering computer usage and creating chargeback models.

“We measure the CPU of every container in singular hertz; measure memory in singular bytes and communicate the raw data exports to administrator systems and users, supporting new business and pricing models,” he said.

Earlier at the event, Red Hat´s Mark Little also drew attention to the challenges that Java faces in the cloud, including the difficulties in achieving high application density. “Unfortunately, the Java stack and JVM [Java Virtual Machine] in particular was never really architected for multitenancy,” said Little, Senior Director of Middleware Engineering at Red Hat. “We expect to be able to have operating systems that allow our services to run independently and fail and recover independently, so the JVM needs to change. This is going to happen, it´s a no brainer; it really has to.”

Some of the potentially serious incompatibilities with multitenancy models are also discussed in a recent Gartner paper — Gartner Reference Model for Elasticity and Multitenancy “Business applications offered as cloud services typically must support elastic multitenancy; however, the traditional application platforms used in modern enterprise IT (application servers) do not possess this capability.”

Waratek are also encouraging you to download the software and try it out.
