Mulesoft (Formerly MuleSource) Launches Public Beta of Tcat Server

Simplifies Tomcat Administration for Enterprise Applications
Wednesday, September 2, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO – September 2, 2009 – MuleSoft, formerly MuleSource, today launched the public beta of the MuleSoft Tcat Server [pronounced “tea-cat”]. MuleSoft Tcat Server leverages core technology that made its Mule ESB the world’s most widely deployed open source integration platform.

Tcat Server is a fully supported web application server, based on Apache Tomcat. It was created to help IT administrators and operations professionals save time and money managing their mission-critical business applications. The server’s enterprise-class functionality allows IT teams to migrate from heavyweight legacy platforms — such as Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere — to the lightweight open source option, Tomcat.

Features for the new product, accessible via Tcat Server’s administration console, include:

  • Application provisioning – deploy applications to server instances and groups with minimal risk and downtime.
  • Server group administration – manage multiple instances of Tomcat from a centralized location, eliminating tedious, error-prone manual work.
  • Performance monitoring and diagnostics – analyze Tomcat applications, and pinpoint the root-cause of trouble for faster resolutions.

With this product release, MuleSoft is responding to customer and community needs – over 65% of Mule ESB users are running Mule ESB in or alongside a Tomcat environment. Mulesoft CEO Greg Schott explains, “With Tcat Server, MuleSoft is upending the status quo and sounding a death-knell for bloated legacy infrastructure software. We’re helping IT organizations to migrate to the lighter weight and less costly alternative they want, Tomcat, without losing the enterprise capabilities and support that they require.”

MuleSoft offers customers world-class support services for both Tcat Server and Apache Tomcat. Recent customer satisfaction surveys confirmed a 91% satisfaction rate with MuleSoft support services, and a 0% dissatisfaction rate.

Jason Brittain, author of Tomcat: the Definitive Guide, recently joined the staff at MuleSoft as an architect. Brittain says, “It is well-known that Apache Tomcat is a high performance web server and servlet container, which is very stable even for the largest of web sites. Yet stock Tomcat lacks enterprise features and support that administrators really need for production use. I am excited to have joined MuleSoft, knowing that our Tcat Server meets these needs and makes Tomcat even more attractive from an operations perspective.”
