My colleagues Charles Le Vay, WebSphereTechnical Evangelist, and Brian Martin, Distinguished Engineer, Websphere XS/DataPower XC10 Chief Architect talk about application performance, scalability, and availability around the world. This week they are headed to the Global WebSphere Community on Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 11:00 am EST to discuss, “Elastic Caching: The key to application performance and scalability”.
I caught up with Charles earlier today to see if he could share a bit on what to expect during Thursday’s session. This is what I found out.
The webcast will focus on how elastic caching can easily be integrated into the enterprise. Various elastic caching patterns will be shown, the benefits of each pattern, and the requirements for implementing each pattern. For our developers, the session will cover the simple methods for interacting with an elastic caching using Java API, REST APIs and .Net APIs. A downloadable sample application that demonstrates how to integrate elastic caching with IBM Worklight will also be discussed. Finally, the session will provide a peak into the near future with a preview of the upcoming MongoDB support in WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
Charles shared the most talked about scenario is around mobile. Why? When a business extends their applications to mobile devices, it must plan to handle a significant increase in transaction volume. This increased load can push the enterprise infrastructure to capacity. IBM has elastic caching solutions that are a cost effective way to handle these dynamic loads without having to scale costly back-end systems.
There is still time to join Charles and Brian, these two technical experts, as they share how easy it is to bring speed and scalability into your enterprise infrastructure. See you on Thursday.
