Java Engine Server

Java Engine software stack is an image of a base CentOS template with the preinstalled JDK. It provides a bare minimum required for Java application hosting, while ensuring compatibility with all of the platform features (e.g. automated vertical and horizontal scaling, public IP, isolation groups, firewall rules, API and SSH access, etc.).

Java Engine is designed for the deployment and hosting of Java applications based on the fat JAR / uber JAR (i.e. executable JAR with all the classes, resources, and dependencies). It utilized the Java Memory Agent to automatically optimize your application by tuning configs according to the load and available resources.

Note: This template utilizes a modern systemd initialization daemon.
