SAN DIEGO, CA – FEBRUARY 15, 2012 – Caucho® Technology, the leader in high performance application servers, today announced that Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant report on Enterprise Application Servers (EAS) positions Caucho’s Resin as “Visionary”.
Caucho’s “visionary” status demonstrates that Caucho® not only understands the EAS market, but also where the market is heading. Caucho® competes in this space with contenders like IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle through inovation. Caucho® adds innovative new features to Resin, Java Application Server and Web Server, that address current limitations of the market leaders.
Gartner is a leader in information technology research and informs CIOs, CTOs and senior IT professional on all matters related to high-tech, telecom, professional services firms, developer tools, and infrastructure.
Caucho’s flagship product, Resin Java Application Server provides great examples of how a visionary company can gain market share in the EAS market. Resin 4 possess many new innovative features including:
- 3rd-generation, cloud-optimized clustering (EC2 and OpenStack optimized),
- cloud deployment system,
- watchdog monitoring for reliability,
- and the health system for server monitoring and self-healing recovery,
- distributed elastic caching with memcached wire protocol access,
- Quercus, fast, scalable PHP clone written in Java
Resin’s features provide everything high traffic sites need to scale in one server package. Caucho’s Resin is a full web server faster than Apache httpd with unsurpassed and secure extensibility. Resin has a cloud aware load balancer, GC-less large RAM cache, SQUID-like HTTP proxy caching for speeding up dynamic pages to near static speed, distributed caching, and third generation clustering. Resin contains action-based server/JVM monitoring and just in time Java profiling with Web Admin, and full DevOp friendly REST and CLI control.
Recently, NetCraft showcased Resin in the February 2012 NetCraft Web Server Survey for rapid growth in the million busiest sites.
About Caucho’s innovative features Scott Ferguson, chief software architect of Resin, added: “There are a lot of synergies if you use Resin as a full stack as the various Resin pieces were designed to work together. What you get with Resin is a single configuration model, a single clustering model, a single cloud deployment model and a single health/server monitoring model instead of motley crew of open source projects with different configuration, different clustering, 3rd party health system and spotty cloud support. Resin has always been developer friendly but now it is DevOps, Ops and cloud friendly with its CLI and REST control.”
One of Resin’s most innovative features is raw speed. Scott Ferguson added “Key pieces of Resin’s core networking library is written in highly optimized C. Java is the OOP layer that allows Resin to be full featured. C is what allows Resin to be fast. On top of this layer we build our distributed caching, clustering, session replication, servlet engine, server monitoring, cloud deployment, etc.”. Scott continued, “C gives us speed. Java gives us OOP and structure to build complex systems. In a very real way, Resin is the most configurable and has the best plugin architecture of any web server, and this allows us to innovate quickly. Resin’s plugin architecture is all based on standard Servlets and Servlet Filters. Any Java developer could write Resin Web Server plugins without worry of buffer overflows or other security problems that face C based web servers. Speed is not the only thing Resin has going for it.” Resin is EAS focused on scalable web applications.
