Real Customer Findings:

JBoss: Lack of Support/Tooling/Reliability and Escalating Costs
We need to count on our vendor be there for us to resolve issues immediately and ensure continuous uptime. If our navigation system has issues its not bad for business; its bad for people. We rarely need to call on Oracle support, but when we do they ensure a very quick resolution. This isnt just an application server, this is our business. IT Executive, Vehicular Navigation / Communications Firm If your company can withstand the downtime, the uncertainties, and a do-it-yourself approach to support, then JBoss is for you. We have not seen any downtime with WebLogic since we migrated to it. This has saved us a considerable amount of money and time. It also makes our business operations very stable.E-commerce Developer, Major Telecom Company

CTO, 3rd Party Non-Cash Payment Provider

We saw a 75% cost reduction after moving from JBoss to WebLogic, with our network provisioning staff reduced from 64 to only 3 people. We are now able to simplify and unleash the benefits of automation of complex networks in the data center to serve online at a much lower price. CEO, Data Center Automation Firm Managing JBoss was a major problem. All of the management tools were command line, so it is hard to make changes and manage configurations. We have seen considerable productivity gains with WebLogic because of its superior management tools. The time to manage is much faster and easier with the consoles that WebLogic provides.
