Business growth pushing the traditional IT envelope Daa & transaction volume growth leading to impacts on application performance New application patterns WebSphere eXtreme Scale Extreme transaction processing is real, happening today across a variety of business areas WebSphere has the technologies needed to support extreme scalability and is continuing to enhance it to meet client needs (working with clients using this stuff now) We are making these technologies easier to bring to bear even on existing business applications (via plug-in techniques and handling many of the common exceptions for the developer.) These technologies integrate nicely into existing monitoring solutions making the operations visible WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.0 (shipping later in June 2009) offers the following new capabilities: Broader applicability: WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7 provides a plug-in for WebSphere Dynacache to enable seamless usage and integration of a &quot;drop-in&quot; cache for WebSphere Application Server applications. This brings the linear scalability of the Object Grid technologies to bear on a broad variety of business applications with minimal invasive changes. Improved reporting and monitoring: Implementations of metric access adapters improve integration with leading monitoring tools. This enables more comprehensive insight into the operational behavior of business solutions. Improved ease of use: WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.0 has been enhanced to handle many of the common retry and exception logic tasks in grid middleware, removing the burden from developers and allowing them to focus on the business logic aspects of application development. Enhanced XTP capabilities: Implementation of byte array maps reduces the memory footprint of the grid data, resulting into lower memory costs and better performance. Your developers can now create dynamic maps to build more robust and efficient XTP applications for your business. With support for WebSphere Real Time, the industry-leading real-time Java offering, WebSphere eXtreme Scale enables the XTP applications to have more deterministic latency. Customer Scenarios: Entertainment: The client needed to support a global on-line gaming experience. They anticipated up to 80 thousand hits per second (which gets us well over 5 billion per day) where each hit needed to touch the user&apos;s profile. Using eXtreme Scale, we worked with the client to deploy a profile application solution that scales to their needs using a reasonable number of servers and reduced their response times tenfold (from 50 ms to 5ms). This business will grow eight times larger of a three year period. As this business grows, our solution will scale up with it. Financial: The client set out to build a scalable order routing application that can easily grow to support increasing volumes of order execution requests while maintaining application latency. Given the scale of orders and the requirement that the orders be processed in a tight timeframe, this was a considerable challenge. Using eXtreme Scale technology along with a 64 bit Java Virtual Machine, we worked with the client to deploy a solution that scaled out to easily provide the level of service required while providing improved the millisecond level response times required. This includes, or should we say depends on, eXtreme Scale&apos;s automatic replica management and sub-second fail over capabilities.&quot;
