Distributed transactions with multiple databases, Spring Boot, Spring Data JPA and Atomikos

Another interesting blog post showing off Atomikos with Spring Boot and JPA.

As soon as we get some spare time (sigh) we’re hoping to look a bit more into Spring Boot, BTW.

As usual, we will be closed a few weeks during the Summer holidays 2014. This means that we will only offer production support (no other services) during the following weeks:

Thanks for your understanding!

Can you help us transition to mainstream?

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

We want to ask for your help and/or feedback on the following matter…

We’re a small company with no VC money to burn so we need a sustainable customer base and dito commercial offerings.

During the last year or so, we’ve been trying to transform towards a mainstream customer base (as opposed to fewer, bigger but select customers). For this, we needed a more modest and flexible pricing scheme as well as some more individualised service offerings. The numerous prospects we’ve talked to have driven us towards the following formula.

So here is the question: what feedback are you willing to share with us? Is there anything important we’ve missed that could convince your company to purchase from us (and thereby make our continued open source offerings possible)?

If you have anything you want to share, please feel free to comment on this post… [UPDATE: if you have no login then feel free to email us at info at atomikos dot com]

Thank you!

Customer release 3.9.6 now available

Friday, June 20th, 2014


We’ve just released 3.9.6 for support customers - see the release notes.


Enter the cloud economy

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Today is a big day for us: we’ve published our new pricing model. It’s simple, clear, and most of all cloud-ready because there is hardly any counting of CPUs or cores. Since nobody can know these things in a cloud, it’s no use trying to count anyway.

Of course this didn’t just fall out of the sky: we’ve spent most of the previous year talking to prospects and customers to find out what works for them and what doesn’t. The result, we think, is worth blogging about. We can’t wait to learn what you think…


PS thanks to all those customers and prospects who have given us useful feedback to make this possible!!!

Atomikos continues to support OSGi

Monday, November 11th, 2013

If you’ve been following the recent cyber-news then you may have heard about more and more vendors abandoning OSGi support.

Just to be clear: we are _not_ part of this club - quite the contrary: Atomikos continues to invest in OSGi compatibility and improved integration with OSGi environments. It’s a major thing for us. Why? Because we design(ed) our products to integrate into your IT ecosystem.

Atomikos scalability

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

We’ve know it for a while, but this independent blog post confirms the facts: linear scalability.

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Due to a server migration you may experiencing problems with support emails. We are working to resolve the problem.

Announcing PostgreSQL support via 2ndQuadrant

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

In a recent post we’ve announced our end-to-end support program. We are glad to be able to add PostgreSQL to the list of supported JDBC vendors - thanks to and via our PostgreSQL support partner 2ndQuadrant.

The idempotent receiver myth

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

In an attempt to ‘increase performance’, many people will try to hack around in JMS - thereby falling into the idempotent receiver trap by checking for duplicate message receipt. The consequence: scalability actually degrades!

Fortunately, the best way to enjoy reliable messaging is also the simplest one, and it scales linearly.
