  24. 24. Scaling Out WebLogic Server with the Application Grid – Goals and Benefits • Extreme Application Scalability Requirements • Scale-out middleware to hundreds of servers acting in concert • Adaptive application infrastructure for assured QOS • Automated application management large pools of resources to reduce operational cost • Predictable, reliable application performance • Design for maximum reliable throughput with reduced latency 24
  25. 25. Oracle WebLogic Application Grid Extreme Scale-Out Deployment and Performance for Java • Coherence Grid Edition • JRockit Real Time • WebLogic Operations Control • Enterprise Manager Diagnostics Oracle Pack WebLogic • JRockit Mission Control Application • Application Diagnostics for Grid Java 25
  26. 26. Integrating Coherence into WebLogic Server “Deep” OOB Integration “Light” OOB Integration • Massive scale out clusters • State Replication • Scale out in memory JMS • Clustered Caching • JPA on the Grid • Scale out data grid tier 26
  27. 27. Application Server Strategy Summary Oracle and WebLogic are #1 • Combined, Oracle provides the #1 Java EE application server, designed for the most mission-critical of applications • Increased Investment in lightweight, productive, standards-based development and deployment • Renewed Focus on Levels of Quality of Service – performance, scalability, reliability, availability • Execution on Best of Breed Manageability – deployment, monitoring, diagnostics, maintenance • Delivery of Next-Generation Scale Out – scale linearly, efficiently, automatically WebLogic Server Clusters Oracle Differentiator: the “ilities” WebLogic Application Grid 27
