Appointment brings substantial cost savings to Irish Enterprises in the deployment and operation of Java applications
Waratek today announced the appointment of Darwin Solutions to bring the extensive benefits of Java Virtualization to the growing Irish Market. Waratek’s patented Java Virtualization takes core Java code and, with no code change, enables applications with key Cloud benefits including multitenancy and elasticity. This dramatically increases application density enabling cost cutting benefits of 50% or more on Java infrastructure.
‘Java is the most widely used programming language in the world but it was not developed for Cloud Computing. This makes it difficult to run Java applications in Cloud environments’ says Damien Peat, CEO of Darwin Solutions. I’m delighted to be bringing Waratek’s game changing Java Virtualization to key Enterprise clients in Ireland’ says Peat. A sales professional with over 25 years experience in the IT/Software industry, Peat has become a trusted advisor to many leading Public Sector bodies and Financial Services organizations through senior sales management roles at Apple, Oracle, Novell and DEC.
Damien has helped many Enterprises in Ireland to invest in excess of €50m in best of breed software and services to drive both excellence and better performance within their organisations. Over his long career he has served on many key customer steering committees including the Revenue online service, which is now the biggest public facing Java application in Ireland and one of the biggest in EMEA .
