Jonas' new role will focus on product development & architecture as well as technical evangelism for Terracotta.
TSS asked Jonas about the transition:
I am very excited about joining Terracotta. Their virtualization server and concept of distributed shared objects (DSO) is one of the most interesting technologies I have come across for a long time, a technology I do believe that it will set the standard for how clustering and caching is done in Java.Terracotta recently put out a company blog, and announced v1.1 of their Virtualization Server 1.1.
Terracotta's natural approach of transparency and no-APIs is a very much in line with the ideas that Alexandre Vasseur and I have been developing and sketching on the last years, and thinking ahead, I know that there is a lot of things that we could do together that will simplify enterprise programming in Java at large (things that starts with, but goes way beyond, clustering and caching).
