JavaEE technology stack on Windows Azure?

( 3 months ago )


The organization at my company was considering moving to the cloud. My boss, engineering director, suggested Windows Azure given that he recently joined our organization coming from a .NET-only shop where his prior company leveraged it. Our organization is an Oracle/Java EE shop, and personally I've been out of touch with the Microsoft/.NET world since .NET 3.5 was first released. So, I was researching Java support on Azure, but the most I could find was basic Tomcat support. Here's an overview of our technology stack (heavily Java) that we would migrate:

  • Spring Framework (Heavy use)
  • Java EE / EJB / Java Message Service /
  • Spring MVC
  • Spring Portlet MVC / JSR-168 (porltlet API)
  • Memcached for caching
  • CouchDB for some analytics applications
  • JAX-WS and JAX-RS web services
  • Oracle PL/SQL / ETL / 10s of terabytes of data warehousing
  • (Would like to start using Hadoop to streamline ETL processing)

This is across fairly large 2 web applications and 6 web services currently running in production.

My question: is Azure a good fit for such a migration? It doesn't seem to be to me, but I would like to hear your answers.

I was suggesting Amazon, but my boss is not convinced given that he's after a PaaS model not an IaaS one with IT administration overhead.

Thank you!
