A pair of vendors at JavaOne in San Francisco this week debuted an architecture that lets IT deliver applications over a resilient "fabric"--mimicking the application architecture of large-scale Web app providers such as Google.

Appistry, which makes the application fabric, and Interface21, maker of the Spring Java-based application framework, said they are working together to deliver a joint product to support large-scale Java application deployments.

The joint product, Appistry EAF for Spring, takes Interface21's Spring framework, a widely-used Java application framework, and ties it to Appistry's fabric-based approach to make enterprise Java applications that are easier to develop and able to delivered with improved scalability and reliability, the vendors said.Specifically, the new offering will provide Spring customers with the computing and data grid facilities required by large-scale, mission-critical applications, including those for high-volume data processing, "real-time" analytics, and enterprise high-performance computing (HPC), they said.

The joint product addresses two of the major challenges of building large-scale Java applications--leveraging frameworks and code repositories to speed development, while also creating an application infrastructure that can deliver and manage apps reliably across a full enterprise.

Capabilities of the Appistry app fabric include scale-out virtualization, which makes a pool of computing resources appear as a single, virtualized resource; application-level fault-tolerance; and automated management, which simplifies provisioning of apps across the grid or cluster.
