Greater Quebec Software Symposium
April 20 - 22, 2007 - Montreal, Quebec
High Availability Java
Clustering and high availability is a critical topic in Java Enterprise circles. There are many strategies to clustering but not every strategy is right for every application. Knowing which strategy for which application is critical in weighing scalability vs performance. This session discusses clustering topologies such as full replication, distributed clustering, master/slave, and other strategies.
Topics such as communication protocols pros and cons and in which strategy is better for which situation will be covered, and will culminate in the holy grail of high availability, transparent clustering. Attendees will leave with a solid understanding of clustering architectures and where best to apply them.
