Macaw Software announces the availability of Community Edition (CE)

Macaw Software announces the availability of Community Edition (CE) of its flagship Macaw platform to enable software developers and groups to effectively develop and operate Microservices based applications. This edition is free for use by developers and application teams. For support, Macaw users can post questions at https://www.stackoverflow.com with hashtag #macaw. Macaw and its partners will respond as early as possible.

Macaw is container-ready natively that orchestrates the necessary environment and tools to build, deploy and manage modern apps based on Macaw Microservices. Macaw provides various built-in and readily usable core application services i.e. database, security, messaging, registry, API gateway, load-balancer/HA, etc. that are essential for rapid development and turn-key operations. New Microservices can be architected using any preferred programming language with its extensible SDK. Current Macaw CE version (0.9.3) supports Java and future versions will be adding support to other popular languages.

Macaw offers the following deployment options:

  • Vagrant/Virtual Box – suitable for use on personal laptop/developer workstation
  • VMWare environments using OVF – suitable for team/shared environments
  • AWS using the provided AMI – suitable for developers/teams using AWS
  • Existing Linux Hosts with CentOS – Works on any Cloud/VM/Container/Baremetal

Detailed instructions are provided for each of the above scenarios at https://www.macaw.io/documentation/default/

Highlights of Macaw Community Edition (CE):

  • For developers, Macaw provides Microservice modeling, codegen, build and publish toolsets and essential services like database, logging, identity etc. to foster rapid development and focuses on application logic and experiences.
  • For operations, Macaw yields management capabilities such as monitoring, scaling, load balancing and CI/CD integration for accelerating release/feature velocity. Infrastructure agnostic deployment flexibility for unified operations across hybrid environments is a substantial plus.
  • Built on top of highly scalable and resilient and distributed messaging infrastructure to support the needs of enterprises and service providers.
  • Equipped with self-governance capabilities, scaling policies and log search to manage, govern and debug applications at scale in near real time
  • Renders complete container support including container management, orchestration and deployment flexibility to popular resource schedulers and infrastructure runtimes.
  • A Host of out of the box integrations that come with the platform, including extensible SDK that development community can use for their custom needs.

Key Benefits:

  • Faster innovation: Macaw apps are composed of several smaller Microservices allowing app owners and ops teams to frequently and independently update, evolve and release functionality to customers. This enables customers to achieve faster innovation.
  • Presents potential to adopt big data and IOT use cases: High throughput messaging infrastructure coupled with built-in big data and Micro Analytics support grants enterprises implementation capacity in frequent use cases.
  • Improved customer experience: Through fundamentally resilient and fault tolerant business services, improved experiences are delivered to customers.
  • Reduces Technology Lock-in risks: By imparting container adoption and abstracting applications from core infrastructure, flexibility is gained in choosing technology stack and underlying clouds.
