jClarity’s Censum, Waratek’s Virtualization Combined for Java Analytics

jClarity’s Java analysis tool Censum will be integrated with Waratek’s virtualization technology, providing its customers with operational insight into Waratek’s Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and cost savings.

Founded by leading Java experts, jClarity’s debut product jClarity Censum offers Java analytics and insight for developers as opposed to solely supplying raw data. Censum locates Garbage Collection (GC) performance problems and advises how to fix them in an easily comprehensible manner. Launched in December 2012, jClarity Censum has already been hailed as ‘technology you can’t and won’t miss in 2013′ by Nerdability.

The Waratek CloudVM for Java allows enterprises, data centres and providers to run Java in the Cloud with genuine multitenancy, addressing serious incompatibilities that have previously undermined Java’s place in this new computing space.

“Waratek’s technology represents a significant step towards reducing data centre footprint & increasing application density, both of which are hugely important in today’s market conditions” says jClarity’s CEO Ben Evans. “By adopting the combination of Waratek & jClarity, IT departments can feel confident that they can realise cost savings whilst still fully understanding their production plant.”

Inefficient Garbage collection can affect application performance, using Censum to monitor live application behavior can bring enhanced performance and cost savings to the Cloud” says Waratek’s CTO and Founder John Matthew Holt. “The use of Censum with the Waratek CloudVM for Java, provides a seamless and cost effective way to host elastic multitenant Java applications with fine-grained performance metering and control.”

jClarity Launches Java Optimization Tool

Java startup jClarity just  unveiled their first analysis tool, jClarity Censum, designed to assist developers with Java issues.

Founded in 2012, jClarity is a London-based tech start-up that creates intelligent products to optimize Java.  The company is headed up by Java technologists and regular conference speakers Ben Evans, Martijn Verburg and Kirk Pepperdine.

jClarity Censum is the team’s initial product, offering analytics and insight as opposed to solely supplying raw data. The program defines Garbage Collection (GC) performance problems in plain English and advises how to fix them. GC is a difficult, specialized area that can be very frustrating for busy developers, devops and operations teams. Easy to install and use, jClarity Censum delivers the parsing, number crunching and statistical analysis in order to solve GC performance issues and provides solid recommendations to act upon.

Through jClarity, we want to build products and services that truly bring change to the Java / JVM landscape and Cloud performance space” says CEO Ben Evans. “Censum advises developers what to do when Java falls over in an easily comprehensive manner, removing the need for a PhD in Computer Science.”

jClarity is backed by Aimar Capital, a technology-based venture capital fund based in London and New York.

jClarity Censum is available to download at for £595 per user per year.
