Most business applications are architected using a tier-based approach. Unfortunately, new platforms and architectures, such as HW and SOA/Grid, are not aligned with the existing tier-based approach, which is by definition centralized and static. The solution is to move beyond the tier-based approach - to an SOA built on shared spaces within a grid computing framework.
Learn what encompasses a space based architecture framework, how to virtulize middleware, and a 5 step approach to achieve a dynamically scalable SOA. The space-based approach addresses the following requirements:
- Distributed caching
- Content based messaging
- Parallel Processing
- Object based load balancing
Performance-intensive organizations are quickly upgrading their tier-based computing infrastructures to SOA/Grid. Leveraging space-based technology, this transition is now easy, fast, and low-risk.
