October 19, 2010 @ 7:00pm – High-Performance Scalability for Enterprise Applications with Enterprise Ehcache

Description

Scaling enterprise applications is hard. Traditional architectures that use the database as a hub of application data and shared state lead to performance bottlenecks, excessive database license and hardware costs, and vendor lock-in. Many homegrown or patched-together solutions at worst don’t work and at best suck hours of developer time that could be better spent elsewhere.

Enterprise Ehcache is an easy-to-deploy solution to these hard-to-solve scale and throughput problems. Ehcache has long been the de facto standard for Java caching and is the default cache for many popular frameworks and containers such as Hibernate, Spring, Tomcat, JBoss, WebLogic, WebSphere, and ColdFusion. In this presentation you will learn how to use Enterprise Ehcache to speed up and scale out your application from one node to 1,000s, to large virtualized environments and clouds:
* Background—standard caching theory and practice
* Getting started—the Ehcache API and configuration
* Web caching
* Advanced scaling techniques—configuring and deploying a distributed cache
* Flexibility, management, and control—decorators, listeners, statistics, and monitoring
* Cloud deployment
* Tuning and monitoring best practices

Speaker

On short notice we had a speaker change. Dan Juengst had a schedulling conflict. Instead Eric Mizell from Terractotta will give the presentation:

As a Solutions Architect on the Field Engineering Team for Terracotta, Eric Mizell helps enterprise IT organizations improve their service availability and application performance through the application of the industry leading Terracotta Java Scalability Technology.  Eric has over 12 years of experience designing and developing enterprise systems where performance and scalability were essential. Outside the office, he spends time with his family and especially enjoys coaching his son’s baseball team.

Server to Cloud – convert a legacy platform to a micro-PaaS using Docker

April 15, 2014

The talk will begin with how to setup a local Docker development environment (Windows or Mac OSX) as Docker runs atop Linux. The basics of Docker will be examined including how to use image repositories, and a brief description of available UI’s for managing Docker containers (Shipyard and DockerUI).

Next, example applications will be built for progressively more robust use cases and deployments; to demonstrate the power, flexibility and scalability of Containerization with Docker. The first example will discuss a simple two container model to encapsulate a database and application layer, which will lead to demonstration and discussion about more robust deployments that include features such as service discovery, automatic load balancing, and abstractions to simplify linking of containers. The context of the talk with be how Containerization enables architectural choice, scalability, and polyglot environments.

Docker and supporting technologies will be discussed to expose the multitude of supporting technologies within the ecosystem such as Flynn, Serf (makes or Vagrant), CoreOS, Deus, HAProxy and more.

Technologies that may be employed within containers during the demonstration include, Java, Scala, Akka, Docker, vert.x or node.js, memcached, mysql, mongo.”
