Grand Logic is pleased to announced a new release of our JobServer Cloud edition product. JobServer Cloud edition allows our customers to access and use the powerful job scheduling, job processing, workflow and SOA messaging features available in JobServer from a cloud environment. JobServer now supports deployments on Amazon EC2, allowing our customers to lower their IT costs and free themselves to focus on their core applications. If you are using EC2 to host your applications, and you are in need of a job scheduling and processing solution, then JobServer is a perfect choice.

JobServer Cloud delivers all the same great features and capabilities found in our core JobServer software 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 java Tasklets.  We will ensure 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 or if more capacity is needed. Daily and weekly reports are delivered that provide detailed job scheduling and processing statistics. Contact our support team to get setup with a fully managed instance of JobServer.

With our fully managed JobServer Cloud solution, there is 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.

If you want to install and manage your own JobServer instances, then download JobServer today and install on your EC2 environment to start scheduling and processing jobs. Start with one EC2 instance or scale JobServer to run on hundreds of EC2 instances. JobServer scales easily and effectively on EC2 to allow you to run thousands of jobs. JobServer can scale to meet your needs by taking full advantage of your Amazon cloud environment.
