WebSphere eXtreme Scale POC Experiences
Stream:
WebSphere Application Server 2 (5)

Abstract:
This session will explore real world customer caching POC requirements, proof points, pain points, and provide insight into the various caching options to solve the client’s existing caching issues.
In this session, you will gain real insights into real solution alternatives, using WebSphere Extreme Scale, for resolving existing customer pain points with their pre-existing caching solution.
A caching solution is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We will explore the various techniques used to in a customer POC to resolve issues with performance, scalability, cache preloading, database synchronization, and the importance of data placement in the Extreme Scale cache for optimal performance. The customer options for caching alternatives will be presented in context of the primary caching scenarios to choose from: JPA L2, Side Cache, In-Line Cache, and Extreme Processing. The importance of understanding the main customer requirements, tolerance of code modifications, and use cases effectively determine the optimal solution.
