[Link] IBM Explores Making JVM Big Part of Cloud Platforms

Posted 15 June 2013 - 07:27 PM


The idea behind trying to establish the JVM as a software stack in the cloud is to facilitate a "continuous platform experience" between JVM-based applications running in the cloud and mobile devices, Rellermeyer noted.

Working with the JDK, IBM is experimenting with a dedicated JVM on application servers and a shared JVM for a PaaS (platform as a service). "The question is how can we turn the JVM into more of a cloud-type platform," Rellermeyer said.

However, the research project is showing that IBM is facing some obstacles to getting the JVM to scale to the level that might be expected in a multi-tenant platform-as-a-service, he acknowledged. But IBM is considering what architectural changes it can make with JVM "to make it more scalable and amenable to the foundation of PaaS as well as more lightweight in general," Rellermeyer said.
