For those who couldn’t attend TheServerSide JavaSymposium event in Vegas a few weeks ago, you can find the presentation I gave together with GigaSpaces Senior Architect Shay Banon
I also participated in a panel on High-Performance Architectures. It was moderated by my good friend John Davies, Technical Director, IONA ; and the panelists included Bob Lozano, Founder & Chief Strategist, Appistry; Gil Tene, Co-founder, Azul Systems; and Kirk Pepperdine . I think this piece of the discussion was particularly interesting:
6. We have got J2EE what are your opinions about the design? How much does J2EE come into this and databases?
There is also coverage of the panel on TheServerSide.
The complete list of questions covered in this panel can be found below:
|1. What is High Performance Computing?|
|2. What is the differences between distribute data, sort of caching and high performance computing ?|
|3. How do you see high performance computing these technologies fitting in with service-oriented architectures, potentially ESBs ?|
|4. How do you see high performance computing relating to ESBs and then SOA, and any other if at all?|
|5. I would like each of you guys to give us an example whether it be the amazing volumes you have got, the actual sheer throughput with a number of CPUs impresses guys. How big is it like? What can it do?|
|6. We have got J2EE what are your opinions about the design? How much does J2EE come into this and databases?|
|7. If you do away with a database, just pretend that is possible, what about all those dealing with database being a challenge because it has that very powerful capability of offering us any new ranking or two ?|
|8. I understand that you mentioned Amazon and the question was how can we leverage the computer resources?|
|9. I was wondering if it would be possible to hear from the three gentlemen representing companies just a quick summary about what their products are about, just because it seems like we are kind of talking around the issue but really their answer to high performance architecture is their product, so it would be nice to kind of hear a summary?|
