Chariot Solutions develops iPhone App to Monitor JBoss Application Platform Performance




Real-time performance insight of the app will be on display during JBoss World

Chariot Solutions, a leading Java and open source development and consulting firm, announced that it will be showcasing its latest development –
an iPhone app to monitor application server performance – at JBoss World. JBoss World 2009 will be held September 1 – 4, 2009 at the Chicago Hilton.
Attendees will be able to visit the Chariot booth (Booth 222) to view a live demonstration of an application server being monitored in real time.

Chariot has developed the iPhone app to allow IT executives and system administrators to remotely monitor their application servers. With Chariot’s
new app, mobile performance monitoring is now possible for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. With at-your-fingertips access to system status, ‘out of the office’
will no longer mean out of touch with meaningful performance data of critical applications.

Recognizing the emergence of mobile development for business, Chariot sought to leverage its expertise in the open source space to deliver an application with
clear value to its clients and the IT industry. Chariot’s iPhone app will allow enterprises using JBoss Enterprise Middleware to directly communicate with their
application server (or multiple servers) on-demand. IT directors will be able to remotely verify the operational status of their servers and view current loads.
Should an issue arise, management will have instant access to system analytics to interpret and react.

The server oversight app will enable real time visibility on system availability and current load. After download, users will be able to select the servers
to monitor and set alert thresholds for their specific performance requirements. The insight provides an assessment tool for IT directors and system administrators
to direct troubleshooting and performance tuning efforts while in the field.

Expanding the shared knowledge base and skill set in anticipation of future business challenges is a priority for Chariot. A team of Chariot developers is
involved in the development and testing of the iPhone app to ensure the successful fulfillment of the vision for the app. The new expertise gained by the development
team will be disseminated throughout the Chariot staff via internal training sessions.

“Chariot has always been committed to leveraging the benefits of emerging technologies for the benefit of our clients,” said Aaron Mulder, Chief Technology
Officer of Chariot Solutions. “We view mobile development as a natural extension of our capabilities into an area with significant advantages for our client.”

As its work frequently contributes to the JBoss community, Chariot has earned the distinction of being included in the Red Hat Catalyst Program. Chariot has kept
Red Hat’s middleware team apprised of their app development and its benefits to customers operating JBoss Enterprise Middleware.

“Red Hat is pleased to have an important and long-standing solutions partner like Chariot Solutions developing value-added applications to complement our
JBoss Enterprise Middleware platforms,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, middleware, Red Hat. “We look forward to working with Chariot as they deliver this
JBoss Certified ISV solution to our mutual customers.”

In addition to demonstrating the early release of the product at JBoss World, Chariot will also be recruiting a select group of IT executives and systems
administrators to participate in a beta test of the iPhone app. Testers will be able to contribute feedback to help deliver a feature set for the app that is
most beneficial to individuals in a system administration role.
