have the tremendous opportunity to start out with no legacy, no old-style infrastructure like application servers, no message brokers, no enterprise service bus (ESB) or other nonsense like that - the typical stuff big enterprise vendors will try to trick you into (if they do: just ignore them - you will be better off).
Instead, BRIC countries have the luxury of being able to pick a light-weight model such as JEE without application server
to achieve unlimited scalability
at virtually no cost, using commodity hardware and software.
With the recent economic crises in both the US and Europe, it is the BRIC countries that are helping out (instead of the other way around). The future will involve a lot more BRIC. And with that, a lot more Atomikos.
Western companies that want to be as agile, productive and competitive as the BRIC countries: what are you waiting for? Call us to get an introduction and migration path for your legacy.
