Cassatt Launches New Collage Web Automation Module (WAM)

"Cassatt's bringing the benefits of virtualization to the world of Java EE applications and Web services," says CEO Bill Coleman

Cassatt is enabling IT organizations -- starting with those running BEA WebLogic Server 8.1-based applications -- to change their assumptions about the return they can get on their IT investments," said Bill Coleman , chairman and CEO of Cassatt Corporation, yesterday as Cassatt announced general availability of the new Cassatt Collage Web Automation Module (WAM), software that helps IT organizations with their server consolidation efforts by providing Java application virtualization and management for Java EE applications.

"Cassatt is bringing the benefits of virtualization to the world of Java EE applications and Web services," said Coleman. "We're delivering Java application virtualization and management -- an innovation that lets an IT department reduce costs through server consolidation while automatically maintaining the application service levels that their business requires."

"These new economics," Coleman added, "will enable organizations to innovate and deliver new capabilities to support their business for a fraction of what they thought possible."

The new Cassatt WAM solution aims to enable IT departments to keep their capital expenditures to a minimum and drastically reduce operational costs, while driving up utilization of the hardware and software that organizations already have.

The Cassatt solution creates a virtual pool of an organization's Java application resources -- hardware, operating systems, and middleware -- freeing them to be used by all applications. Then the Cassatt software automatically, and without human intervention, matches applications to appropriate computing resources in order to maintain the service levels that the business requires of each of their critical Java applications. It also automates many of the steps that organizations must currently handle manually to keep applications built on BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 or other J2EE application servers running optimally.

The Cassatt software, the company says, requires no code changes to existing applications, middleware, or operating systems.

We're glad to see Cassatt is offering additional automation and simplification for our customers," said Marge Breya, chief marketing officer of BEA. "BEA WebLogic Server continues to be a leader in application infrastructure while providing the foundation for SOA and BEA's AquaLogic products. The latest release of BEA WebLogic Server, version 9, includes an emphasis on operations and administration capabilities."

The Cassatt Collage Web Automation Module, with support for BEA WebLogic Server version 8.1, is now generally available. WAM is available for the Linux and Solaris operating systems.
