AJAX Company JackBe Closes Product Beta Program Due To Oversubscription

Tremendous Demand Demonstrates Growing Interest in Enterprise Web 2.0 Infrastructure that Enables the Integration of SOA + AJAX

(SYS-CON Media) - JackBe, provider of Enterprise Web 2.0 infrastructure solutions that integrate SOA and AJAX, announced that it has suspended all additional entrants into the recently unveiled beta program for its Presto Rich Enterprise Application (REA) platform. Announced in October 2006, the program received overwhelming interest driven by the market demand for a comprehensive solution for delivering enterprise AJAX applications based on SOA and Web services.

Having invested millions of dollars to develop SOAs in recent years, enterprises are now looking to utilize Web 2.0 technologies to quickly deliver these services through AJAX-driven Web applications. With JackBe’s Presto REA platform, organizations are able to easily consume SOA services and quickly compose interactive, Web-based business solutions. Current participants in the Presto Beta Program are creating rich, interactive Web-based applications for enterprise user communities with direct consumption of SOA services while also delivering the security and governance needed by their enterprises.

The Presto REA platform enables organizations to greatly improve the usability of their Web applications by leveraging their investments in SOA and delivering the services through AJAX-based dashboards and bespoke applications. Applications built on the Presto REA platform gain the advantages of three related but distinct technologies:

* The power of SOA,
* The flexibility and ease of use of AJAX,
* The speed of deployment of the Web.

“We saw the Presto Beta Program as a great opportunity for our organization because of JackBe’s extensive AJAX experience and its unique background in the SOA space,” said Bob Gorley, Chief Technology Officer for the DIA. “Unlike other software companies with similar solutions, JackBe built Presto specifically to meet the challenges associated with SOA and Web services. Other less flexible technologies are simply retrofitting to their own legacy applications.”

“The huge interest in our Presto Beta Program demonstrates the growing market demand for enterprise Web 2.0 technologies that conform to far higher corporate standards for security and governance,” said Luis Derechin, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of JackBe. “Companies have made significant investments in establishing SOA infrastructures and are now looking to AJAX technology to accelerate the benefits and ROI.”

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
