eComCloud Object Solutions™ eComInit™ is a cloud-friendly init system and resource manager. Its merits include:

  • Cross-platform OS support, including full support for GNU/Linux®, HP-UX®, and several other platforms, with an emphasis on FreeBSD®.
  • A robust and sophisticated modular architecture, designed in line with the Four Motives of eComCloud: Adaptable, Modular, Reliable, Informative.
  • A lightweight JASON-RPC-based communications interface compliant with all relevant standards.
  • The flexible Resource Object Model, a means by which eComInit may track the state of resources which may not fit a process-based availability semantic.

Cloud-enable your systems by adopting our modern and scalable service management solution.
