Making use of the Intelligent Management capabilities in WAS v8.5.5
Stream:
WebSphere Application Server 1 (2)
Speakers:
Alan Chambers
Abstract:
Enhancements introduced in WAS V8.5.5 now allow existing WAS users to reap dramatic improvements in service levels and reductions in costs that would previously have required disruptive changes to the installed topology. In this session, Alan will show how to exploit some quick wins, using the Intelligent Management capabilities first introduced in V8.5 but now made far more accessible to typical WAS users with V8.5.5. Topics include:

* A short review of what's new in V8.5.5
* A brief history of IM
* The easy way to add new capacity to your WAS configuration
* How to increase resilience and reduce operations costs with health management
* How to improve service levels and save money with autonomic application placement
* How to deploy new application versions on the live system without interrupting end-users
* Why you should always use dynamic clusters anyway
