SUN SYSTEMS FOR ORACLE COHERENCE: An optimal in-memory data grid architecture
Optimizing the benefits of a data grid built with Oracle Coherence relies upon creating a modular, balanced architecture. Matching the number of application servers, memory capacity, and quantity of processing nodes to the target workload characteristics is important to achieving the best performance. This Sun BluePrints™ article discusses a drop-in implementation of Oracle Coherence running on Sun servers utilizing Oracle Fusion Middleware components. Benchmark test results are presented within this article to substantiate the impressive scalability and performance of this Web-facing architecture. Best practices derived during implementation and testing of this configuration are also included. Organizations can take advantage of the pre-tested architecture, best practices, and performance results offered in this paper to help speed time to deployment and save on provisioning and implementation costs for similar or adaptable workloads.
