Topic - The 24X7 nature of an online business demands an application framework that can provide:

• a constant predictable uptime
• a constant predictable performance
• switch applications on / off across a cluster of load-balanced servers, thereby easing deployment
• scale linearly with the business needs quickly
• sync data content across multiple servers instantaneously

The current n-tier infrastructure framework put in place in a lot of data centers has provided scalability, failover, clustering only at the machine level. This is not sufficient at the application level which demands failover at objects level. Preservation and synchronization of sessions' content across servers becomes important. This is exactly what Cloud Computing is good at achieving.

  6. 6. Our Technology Platform • Weare very open-source based, running on • Linux • Java + latest application frameworks • Apache • MySQL / Postgres • Tomcat
  7. 7. Our Technology Needs • We run 24 x 7 • A constant predictable uptime • A constant predictable performance • Easily deployable apps across servers • Apps MUST scale linearly with business needs • Sync data content across multiple serves instaneously
  8. 8. Why Cloud Computing Technology? • Sync computing needs with business uptake (linear scaling) • Cross-platform (independence from hardware, OS) – must be Java-enabled • Database and OS independence – so these solutions are questionable • All updates at Java object levels must sync across entire clusters (middleware consideration) • Possibility of ASP-like cloud computing in the future (eg. Amazon’s GoGrid, SCS’s Alatum)
  9. 9. Why Gigaspaces? • Proven, ahead of the pack • Stable • Growing pool of customers in Singapore • Most important – support • Technology platform is very supportive of Java Spring framework • Easy portability of existing Java codes over to Gigaspaces • Good management tool that eases deployment and produce good reports
