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.

Developing scalable, concurrent + fault-tolerant applications with Akka Actors

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

This presentation will cover the use of Akka Actors as a method of developing highly-scalable systems in a highly fault-tolerant manner. It will begin with a look at the Akka Actors and their asynchronous, message-passing, share-nothing nature. Next, we will look at some of the flexible options available to developers using Akka, such as using the Akka Event-Bus for inter-Actor communication, Persistent Channel Communication, PArent-Child relationships, and EventSourcing with Akka. Lastly, a full-featured example will illustrate how we can leverage the previous concepts to develop a CQRS-with-EventSourcing high-volume enterprise-class application with minimal effort. Although Akka is built on Scala, the examples presented here will be in Java (this is AJUG, right?)
