JobServer in the Clouds

Grand Logic is pleased to announced the release of JobServer Cloud edition. JobServer Cloud allows our customers to access and use the powerful job scheduling, job processing, workflow and SOA/Mule messaging features available in JobServer from a hosted on-demand environment. JobServer now supports deployments via a SaaS model, allowing our customers to lower their IT costs and free themselves to focus on their core business.

JobServer Cloud delivers all the same great features and capabilities found in JobServer and can now be hosted in the clouds. This frees customers from the IT burden of buying and maintaining hardware and installing and managing their own IT environment for JobServer. With the cloud edition of JobServer, you are freed from dealing with upgrades and managing maintenance tasks and dealing with hardware issues. We can add more job processing capacity, quickly, as you need it. You just need to focus on building and deploying your jobs and SOA applications and related services. We will insure that your JobServer environment is well maintained, managed and backed up and running efficiently. We will alert you if we notice performance issues or slow running jobs and processes and if more capacity is needed.

No hardware or software to install! With JobServer Cloud, your environment will be deployed and run from the Amazon cloud with secure connectivity to your private network using Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud). You can access your JobServer instance securely to run and manage your jobs and apps with full access to your private corporate network. Many customers also need their JobServer environment to connect and access local IT systems and services within their private corporate network. With Amazon's VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) we can securely bridge between a company’s existing IT infrastructure and your JobServer Cloud environment. Amazon VPC enables enterprises to connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated JobServer compute resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and to extend their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their JobServer resources that are in the Amazon cloud.

We are looking forward to all the great benefits that JobServer Cloud offers to our customers. JobServer Cloud is a natural evolution for JobServer given the web based nature and highly modular SDK extensibility of JobServer. This takes the JobServer solution to the next evolution in software which is cloud computing and virtualization. The Cloud edition lowers costs for customers and allows them to focus on their vertical business needs. We are looking forward to a great next chapter in the evolution of JobServer in the clouds!

We are also very excited about all the great benefits of Amazon's cloud computing environment such as EC2, S3, RDS, EBS, VPC and other services. Amazon is proven provider of virtualization and cloud computing services and offers enterprise security and mission critical reliability. Amazon and JobServer Cloud edition are a great combination.
