Based in Santa Clara, California, LongJump, a leading provider of application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) software, helps companies reduce the time and cost of developing and delivering data- and process-driven web applications. LongJump’s enterprise application platform improves productivity through the visual assembly of commonly used application building blocks, enabling developers and corporate IT teams to gain significant time-to-value since they can bypass the need to recreate common business processes and functions.

About the Product:
Host Your Applications on LongJump and Reduce Your IT Expenses
As opposed to the business mantra of doing more with less, working on the LongJump Cloud allows you to do more—with more. By leveraging the benefits of a robust and secure computing environment, you’re opening the door to a host of industry-standard solutions enabling you to do more–with more agility, scalability and ROI. With the LongJump Cloud, you can focus on solving pressing business issues, not tangling with technology.
LongJump’s Cloud Infrastructure delivers customers the epitome of service, response, security and system availability.
Forget repeating application and platform code across multiple servers. True multi-tenancy at the tenant-ensures independent UI, data modeling, processing, presentation, administration and developer configurations over a common, manageable code base. Because LongJump’s multi-tenancy is also multi-level, its metadata-driven configuration enables solution providers to offer branded SaaS solutions to their clients with complete control as MSPs with separate billing and configurations–all within LongJump’s Cloud.
LongJump’s proven platform has logged over 30-million user hours since 2003, including large-scale deployments of Fortune 500 customers. Expert back-end management, maintenance and administration means reliable service your team can count on.
LongJump hosts its servers with a fully mirrored SAS 70 Type II certified hosting partner (Rackspace) featuring a network operations center that provides redundant N+1 systems, managed firewalls, UPS, diesel-generator backup, HVAC, and biometric security to all systems. The result is a more secure and robust environment than most organizations would build themselves.
Industry-Standard Technology Stack
Built on the MySQL Enterprise Edition relational database and the Apache Tomcat Application Server, LongJump’s components are vetted and highly serviceable—providing greater manageability. Because the platform was built using familiar and versatile code such as Java, JSP, HTML and XML, extending the platform is easier and faster than with proprietary technologies.
24x7x365 Response Center
Always on guard, LongJump servers and network infrastructure are monitored 24x7x365, including a series of advanced alert systems to notify hosting team members of any infrastructure issues. Most issues are resolved so quickly, they go unnoticed by users or our reseller partners. Dozens of individual system statistics are monitored to ensure peak performance such as CPU utilization, network throughput, hard disk array response times, and total system availability.
LongJump’s automated provisioning systems can scale operations quickly and easily–rapidly deploying new servers within hours to meet demand and utilize today’s state-of-the-art load balancers. We can also deploy into cloud hosting environments (Amazon EC2) for virtually unlimited scalability.
