SAN FRANCISCO – June 21, 2010– MuleSoft, the Web Middleware Company, today announced the introduction of TomcatStats, the world’s first Tomcat management app for the Apple iPhone. TomcatStats is a free iPhone app that allows system administrators to monitor and manage multiple Apache Tomcat instances on premise and in the cloud directly from their mobile device, retrieving critical information including memory usage, web traffic statistics and server status, all from their iPhone or iPod touch.
“As the pace of business continues to accelerate, the ability for organizations to mobilize the workforce has become critical for success,” said Sateesh Narahari, director of product management at MuleSoft. “The ability to monitor and manage multiple on-premise and cloud-based instances of Tomcat from a single mobile device is a great convenience to IT administrators, allowing them to gain valuable insight to the health of the server and make changes even while away.”
Apache Tomcat has a 70% enterprise penetration rate, powering countless large-scale mission critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations. Because Tomcat serves as a core component of application infrastructure, downtime can significantly impact the health of a business. As a result, system administrators responsible for managing Tomcat often find themselves virtually tied to their desks. Using TomcatStats’ simple and intuitive tap-button user interface, administrators can now easily manage Tomcat servers from any location, directly from their mobile device. With TomcatStats, administrators can also manage Tomcat in the cloud, using Mulesoft Cloudcat, the industry’s first cloud service offering of Apache Tomcat.
TomcatStats is immediately available at Apple’s iPhone App Store, and is free to download and use.
