Matthias Matook and Ari Zilka share the real-world experience of implementing Enterprise Ehcache at Australia's most visited online news sites. The talk will focus on the challenges and technical solutions to deal with massive page hits, high concurrency and how to achieve linear scalability without additional hardware.
Alex Miller explains shortly why caching is useful, followed by examples of typical difficulties encountered when setting up a cache, like large datasets, data eviction, stale data, replication, loading, duplication. Miller also discusses available choices for designing a distributed caching architecture, and ways to test a cache for performance.
Open Terracotta is an open-source, highly scalable, JVM-level clustering solution. As well as being a drop-in replacement for Tomcat Clustering, it can transparently cluster POJOs and Spring beans. This presentation will be an in-depth case study of a small mobile application built using Terracotta clustering.
