The first public beta release of Scarlet is officially out!
Scarlet is a free, open source, clustering extension to Atlassian Jira. Scarlet answers to one of the Jira customer's frequently asked question: how to make an higly available Jira installation? How to make it scale?
The first reaction when you see Terracotta at work it's... jawdropping. The second is that you start to think at how many things you can do now with a better performance and/or with less headaches (ie without the app server). Believe me, it's amazing. And if you want to dig deep in terracotta, you'll also make good use of your deep knowledge of Doug Lea's Concurrent Programming and Brian Goetz Concurrency in practice, which is a good thing(tm) Main features:
- fool-proof setup clustering solution
- completely transparent: no new things to learn
- just plain old java objects with steroids!
