Introducing JaazOS

When Google was first introducing its new operating system for mobile devices called Android, many people were looking on with disbelief. While time proved the doubters wrong, will this new innovation: a web operating system called JaazOS, have similar chances for mass-market success?

Let’s look at the market opportunity. There are currently 1.7 billion web pages. In the last year alone this number has grown by 700,000,000. This is a huge market in which 85% of web hosting companies are small and local providers.

Traditionally, such small companies do not invest in R&D. In other words they are not producing their own software, and instead focusing on hardware solutions. They have a small dedicated network of customers that often possess their own complete IT departments.

They are not looking at the mass market of non-technical users because they do not have right tools to do this. And here is where Jaaz Portal Ltd.’s latest idea: JaazOS – Android for Data Centers, comes into play.

Installation of this web operating system is simple and efficient. First you need to install the Java Application Server. If you want to save money in this respect you can use a popular Open Source one such as WildFly, while if you are looking for commercial support you can choose from the broad array offered by market leaders such as IBM or Oracle.

The Application Server is a critical layer because it is responsible for talking to the hardware. If you have more experience and needs you can configure a true Cloud environment made from several application servers.

Once you have chosen and installed an Application Server then it is time to install JaazOS onto this so you can serve this aforementioned mass market of non-technical users from day zero. The installation is simple. First you need to deploy the Jaaz Setup web application to the application server, using one simple web interface to configure the entire environment.

Jaaz Setup will automatically download and install other components of JaazOS including Jaaz Kernel, Jaaz Admin and Jaaz Go suites.

Jaaz Kernel is the main component of JaazOS. It is a core system with programming API used to extend the entire system via new, innovative web applications that will run on top of it. It is the implementation of the Oracle Java Portlet API that is an industry standard. The Kernel will lay out all applications and will be responsible for running them.

A part of Jaaz Kernel is the basic Content Management System that will be built into the system. This will provide unified drag & drop capabilities to build complete and advanced websites with the latest version of Bootstrap technology.

The other subsystem will be Jaaz Admin, a management console written in the Angular language. It will allow users to configure their websites in a unified and user-friendly manner. Administrators will not only be able to manage users and websites, but also third-party applications.

The last component will be JaazGo. This will be a software distribution and payment system similar to Google Play. Users will be able to choose from hundreds of ready-to-market applications provided by a third party and pay a fixed price or subscription fee for using it.

JaazOS is a unique proposal for an entirely new-concept web operating system. It will consist of applications and programming API that, with time, will be extended by third-party vendors.

Accordingly, Data Centers will receive a product that will simplify the configuration and management of a complete web hosting environment for the mass market of non-technical users.

This will, of course, be of immense benefit to end-users, who will not only have a unified and simple-to-use web hosting system but also the possibility to move their website from one provider to another, if, for instance, it offers them a better broadband connection, technical support or lower price.

However, this magic will not take place without some much-needed support. If you are interested in assisting JaazOS with a financial investment or just your valuable skills and knowledge please contact us.
