Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

Father of Java James Gosling and Brazilian JavaMan Bruno Souza enthusiastically endorse polyglot PaaS with Java enterprise level support

Jelastic, Inc., the first company that combined Unlimited PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) in one solution announced today that James Gosling, the creator of the popular programming language Java, has joined the Jelastic team as an Independent Director. In addition, Brazilian Java programmer Bruno Souza is now an official Adviser at Jelastic.

James and Bruno are now in the company of an impressive list of Advisers at Jelastic including the creator of the PHP programming language Rasmus Lerdorf, former Microsoft Architect Mark Zbikowski, Parallels Founder Serguei Beloussov, Founder of MySQL and MariaDB Michael 'Monty' Widenius, Founder of NGINX Igor Sysoev and Founder of Apache TomEE, OpenEJB and Geronimo, David Blevins.

"Currently multilingual, Jelastic was initially created as a pure Java cloud and still maintains a primary focus on this programming language. This is based on the fact that the majority of our users (approximately 53%) are Java developers," said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic. "By having James Gosling and Bruno Souza on board, Jelastic is gaining even more in-depth coverage and analysis of Java features on our always transforming and improving platform."

Although the Duke's Choice Award winning platform also supports PHP, Ruby, Node.js and Python (with .NET coming soon), Jelastic will continue to work specifically on the direction of Java usage in cloud computing: innovations, technical solutions, business expectations, flexibility of development and management.

One of the most innovative features of Jelastic is its unique automated vertical Java scaling. Jelastic configures and optimizes different stack templates for automatic vertical scaling, while RAM and CPU usage increases and reduces during the load change in real-time. This feature guarantees that users never overpay for unused resources; and it saves them time because there is no need for manual adjustments or architectural changes. As the application load goes up or down, resources are allocated immediately and automatically. It is also possible to specify resource caps to prevent unexpected or high bills.

"Configuring cloud infrastructures is fun the first time you do it. But it doesn't take too long before it becomes a tedious time sink," said James Gosling. "And, if you have the misfortune of being a software developer that has to fight it out with an IT organization, who usually wants consistency, control and visibility, you find that you're always fighting with them. Jelastic solves all of that. Easy configuration tools for developers, management tools for IT. Peace and productivity. I love it."

Jelastic is the only Cloud Company whose underlying platform is Java, and with the addition of James Gosling and Bruno Souza, this team has the expertise to influence the decisions and the direction relating to Java and Cloud. In 2015, Jelastic plans to influence Java development to make it even more dynamic, by eventually implementing the ability to reload all configurations/settings such as Xmx on the fly, without the need to restart an application/JVM, to bring/adapt desktop applications to the cloud.

"Throughout my career, I have been promoting freedom and choice for developers. Jelastic has a unique business model, that promotes choice," said Bruno Souza. "Jelastic philosophy changed the way I look into cloud infrastructure. Jelastic's Java-based implementation shows the power of Java technology. Giving developers the freedom to leave gives us the confidence to choice to stay. This is the power of the Java ecosystem. The power of choice. I'm very happy to be more directly involved in the future of Jelastic. This is an amazing opportunity to help bring more freedom and choice for developers worldwide."

Jelastic Cloud provides enterprise software that re-defines the economics of Java cloud deployment and management. Jelastic solutions provide the maximum Java application density, the fastest deployment model and the easiest management for private, public and hybrid clouds, all while retaining the flexibility to customize infrastructure and application configurations.

"Success of any high-tech company depends on the right positioning, based on industry domain knowledge. We are welcoming James Gosling and Bruno Souza on our board, who are bringing technology and industry wisdom into Jelastic," said Alexander Galitsky, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Almaz Capital.

Java developers get a cloud-based platform, (available from hosting providers across six continents) with automatic horizontal and vertical scaling (with support for multi nodes) and it takes minutes, not hours or days to get started. Get support of any JVM-based application including pure Java 6, 7 or 8, JRuby, Scala and Groovy. Build and deploy Java applications in the cloud using a wide range of industry-standard software stacks including Tomcat, Glassfish, Jetty, JDK, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, CouchDB, NGINX, Maven, and more. Jelastic's Java Cloud also provides popular integration tools using Maven, Ant, Eclipse, IDEA and NetBeans IDE plugins.

About James Gosling

James Gosling received a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary, Canada in 1977. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983. The title of his thesis was "The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints". He spent many years as a VP & Fellow at Sun Microsystems.

He has built satellite data acquisition systems, a multiprocessor version of Unix, several compilers, mail systems and window managers. He has also built a WYSIWYG text editor, a constraint based drawing editor and a text editor called `Emacs' for Unix systems.

At Sun, his early activity was as lead engineer of the NeWS window system. He did the original design of the Java programming language and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. He has been a contributor to the Real-Time Specification for Java, and a researcher at Sun labs where his primary interest was software development tools. He then was the Chief Technology Officer of Sun's Developer Products Group and the CTO of Sun's Client Software Group.

He briefly worked for Oracle after the acquisition of Sun. After a year off, he spent some time at Google. And now James is the chief software architect at Liquid Robotics where he spends his time writing software for the Waveglider, an autonomous ocean-going robot.

About Bruno Souza

Bruno Souza is a Brazilian Java programmer and open source software advocate. He was President of SouJava, a Brazilian Java User Group he helped to establish, which became one of the world's largest. He was one of the initiators of the Apache Harmony project to create a non-proprietary Java virtual machine. The Java community knows him as the "Brazilian JavaMan."

Bruno is a member of the Board of Directors at the Open Source Initiative representing Affiliate members. This is his second term on the OSI Board. He is also a member of the executive committee of the Java Community Process. In 2010, he co-founded ToolsCloud, a developer tools provider.
