  • High-Performance Scalability for Enterprise Applications with Enterprise Ehcache

    10:45 AM Sunday   Room: 4302
    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 snap in terabyte scale out of the box with only two lines of config changes; speed up performance by as much as 10x more than other solutions, and scale out 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
