LA JOLLA, CA -- December 24, 2008 -- Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leading open source Java-PHP application server vendor, today announced that MocoSpace, the largest mobile social network in North America, has selected Caucho's Resin as their primary application server to host the MocoSpace Web and mobile sites.
MocoSpace is a leading mobile internet company focused on revolutionizing the way people make friends and stay connected on their mobile device. MocoSpace architecture supports social-networking features such as building customized profiles, exchanging of e-mails, instant messaging, and playing games.
Over two years of using Resin, MocoSpace found the performance, stability and ease of administration to be superior. In addition to JavaServer Pages and Servlets, MocoSpace uses the Quercus PHP engine extensively.
Quercus is Caucho® Technology's pioneering open source architecture for web applications and services where Java and PHP are tightly integrated. PHP applications can choose to use Java libraries and technologies such as JMS, EJB, SOA frameworks, Hibernate, and Spring, all within one application server. PHP applications running on Quercus are faster, easier to develop, more capable, more secure, and more scalable than any other PHP solution. By leveraging the reliability of Caucho's Resin Java application server, PHP applications automatically acquire many features required for enterprise-readiness.
Jamie Hall, Co-Founder and CTO of MocoSpace, said "Resin is the center piece of our highly scalable, open source Web and mobile site architectures. Its ability to scale has allowed us to make site performance blazingly fast, while keeping our server footprint small." Hall added, "In my over 10 years of architecting systems in Java, I don't think any other enterprise class Java application server has come as highly recommended."
"MocoSpace's use of Resin, specifically Quercus® Java-PHP implementation, proved to be an excellent business decision to power their website communication and meet the demands of web-enabled mobile phones," said Steve Montal, Co-Founder of Caucho® Technology. "As MocoSpace's user base continues to grow precipitously, they will find that Resin will scale with their business seamlessly" added Montal.
