Description

Combine transactional and long-running workloads for more efficient use of application infrastructure resources

WebSphere Extended Deployment enables a virtualized, goals-directed, dynamic environment for WebSphere applications. Virtualization is achieved by creating pools of resources that can be shared among multiple transactional applications. WebSphere resources can then be dynamically allocated to meet business demands. These dynamic adjustments are governed by operational policies that reflect business goals and priorities. WebSphere Extended Deployment V6.0 expands on this dynamic, transactional environment to include support for new application types and workload patterns. Transactional and long-running workloads can now be consolidated into a single application infrastructure — called a Business Grid.

In contrast to the real-time, request/response behavior of typical transactional WebSphere applications, long-running workloads require dedicated computing resources for longer periods of time. Traditionally, the processing of long-running workloads has had to occur in a separate, isolated environment or during a specific time period, such as off-hours, so that it did not negatively impact the real-time processing of transactional requests. This separation of transactional and long-running workloads results in costly duplication, with little to no ability to share resources across the two environments.

WebSphere Extended Deployment V6.0 now supports the following two types of long-running workloads, which can be dynamically balanced with transactional requests:

  • Batch processing involves the periodic processing of a large number of noninteractive transactions against a data source. Common types of batch processes include statement processing, payroll processing, database loading, and security log processing. In the batch processing model, transactions are stored up and then executed in sequence in order to optimize processing throughput and efficiency. Often, traditional batch workloads are very platform-specific, such as z/OS® batch workloads. WebSphere Extended Deployment V6.0 now provides common services that enable the batch processing of J2EE workloads to occur within a shared infrastructure without negatively impacting transactional requests. These common services, like checkpoint algorithms for transaction management, reduce developer burden and ensure consistent and nondisruptive record-oriented batch processing of J2EE workloads.
  • Compute-intensive workloads require extreme amounts of computing resources, such as CPU, data storage or I/O, to solve complex problems. This type of processing has been historically predominant in the scientific communities for applications like weather forecasting, molecular modeling, and flight simulations. More recently, the use of this type of iterative, data mining analysis has broadened into the business communities for applications such as financial portfolio analysis, computer aided design (CAD), and other applications involving "what if" scenarios. A technique called "parallelization" is often used to speed up the processing of compute intensive jobs, using algorithms to split or partition the job into independently running parts that can be run in parallel on multiple CPUs. WebSphere Extended Deployment provides an infrastructure for the scheduling and processing of compute-intensive workloads, using operational policies to determine where and when to run the jobs within the Business Grid.

Operating efficiencies can be realized when transactional and long-running workloads are consolidated into a single WebSphere environment. Utilization rates are higher when a common pool of virtualized resources can be leveraged for multiple application types. Service levels are optimized when a common set of operational policies allocate resources across workloads. Finally, a unified environment provides for a common development, administration, and management models, decreasing costs and increasing operational stability.

Optimize your data access for improved application performance and scalability

As the use of your transactional Web applications increases, you need an application infrastructure that scales on demand to meet the higher request volumes. WebSphere Extended Deployment's dynamic operating environment helps with this scalability challenge by dynamically adjusting resources in response to actual demand. However, even when the optimal application resource allocations have been made, access to a shared data source, such as a relational database or file system, can become a bottleneck and limit application performance and scalability.

  • Object Grid provides a customizable, pluggable object caching framework that allows applications to share object data using a variety of consistency models. Objects can be stored in the grid and then accessed from multiple applications, reducing the number of trips to the data source and avoiding the cost of repeatedly recreating objects. The Object Grid enables quick and easy sharing of object data across servers.
  • Partitioning Facility supports a partitioned, asymmetric clustering model for highly scalable and reliable transaction processing. Traditional application server clustering, or "symmetric clustering," works well for applications that can run in a stateless cluster in front of a database. However, for high write-rate applications or data-intensive applications that require sequenced request handling, a stateless cluster can only scale so far before cluster members will start competing for access to the data source. WebSphere Extended Deployment provides a partitioning model that enables "asymmetric clustering," an approach that enables intelligent request routing based on defined application partitions, resulting in dramatically improved caching rates and transaction performance.

These features provided by WebSphere Extended Deployment decrease contention for data sources and dramatically improve application performance and scalability. This enables your data access performance to scale along with the rest of your application infrastructure to keep up with growing demand. Even in the z/OS environment where there is shared access to a common data source, WebSphere Extended Deployment offers data access benefits such as reduced database lock latency.

Maintain predictable application quality of service throughout the application lifecycle

The goals-directed infrastructure capabilities of WebSphere Extended Deployment ensure that user requests are classified, prioritized, queued, and routed to servers based on application operational policies that are tied to business goals. Application performance is optimized according to these policies that reflect service-level goals and relative importance to the organization. Simply put, you can state what applications are important to you, and those will get the highest priority access to your WebSphere resources at the right time. This can help you ensure, for example, that your best customers get the best quality of service when they interact with you.

WebSphere Extended Deployment V6.0 extends the concept of a goals-directed workload management to include not only multiple applications, but also multiple versions of the same application. Deploying a new version of an application into production can present a challenge that, if not done properly, can lead to loss of service. In order to maintain continuous operations, administrators are forced to create duplicate staging environments and elaborate custom-developed routing logic to transition from one application version to another. WebSphere Extended Deployment now provides standard administrative and workload management support for application versions through the following new feature:

  • Application Edition Manager enables interruption-free deployment and management of application versions. This capability lets you apply application updates to a production environment with no downtime. The Application Edition Manager also provides an application versioning model that supports multiple deployments of the same application in a WebSphere cell, each distinguished by a unique edition number. The Application Edition Manager makes it possible to choose which edition to activate on a WebSphere cluster, enabling you to either rollout new application updates or back off a change and revert to an older level when necessary. You can also keep multiple versions of the same applications in production at the same time, each receiving some portion of the total requests according to specified routing rules.

WebSphere Extended Deployment's dynamic operations capabilities are also enhanced with more detailed request classification and routing based on business goals through the following new features:

  • Flexible classification provides additional ways to classify requests, such as by authenticated identity, source IP address or query parameters.
  • Work classes and routing rules enable finer grained definition of application service requirements and routing behavior.
  • Multiple protocols are supported, including HTTP and SOAP.
  • Lazy application start permits you to have an application installed but zero instances of an application running. This enables resources to be preserved for frequently accessed applications, since infrequently used applications come up only when requested.

In the z/OS environment, WebSphere Extended Deployment's goals-directed workload management capabilities work closely with z/OS Workload Manager (zWLM) to provide richer classification schemas at the application layer, while still supporting goals at an enterprise level within the z/OS infrastructure.

Improve manageability of virtualized and heterogeneous environments through real-time insight into utilization and health

It can be difficult to visualize and manage complex, distributed IT environments where multiple applications are deployed on tens or even hundreds of application servers. It can also be difficult to monitor and maintain many applications across multiple logical partitions (LPARs) within an IBM zSeries® infrastructure. While the WebSphere Application Server administration console provides excellent built-in capabilities, the special needs of very complex deployments require an aggregated, meaningful view of the application runtime environment.

WebSphere Extended Deployment delivers visual operational and health monitoring capabilities for proactive detection and correction of application and server issues. This allows operators to see at a glance what is happening in the infrastructure and the relative health of the application resources. It also enhances the WebSphere administration console by charting application performance against business goals. In addition, alerts that notify you when intervention is required in order to deliver on business goals help decrease human-intensive monitoring and management. Some of the enhanced manageability features in this release include:

  • Systems management:
    • Repository Checkpoint/Restore helps to reduce recovery time for problems caused by configuration changes.
    • Standby Deployment Manager enables high availability.
  • Visual operational monitoring:
    • Charting support offers long-running workloads, partitions, application editions, and new metrics.
    • Layered charting permits more customizable charting views.
    • Data logging logs historical performance data for analysis.
  • Health monitoring:
    • Health algorithms intelligently detect memory leaks, excessive memory, excessive response times, stuck requests, and high error rates.
    • Automated responses include rejuvenation or notification.

If the application infrastructure is shared across the organization, it may be necessary to make application owners aware of and accountable for their resource usage. WebSphere Extended Deployment delivers capacity metrics to measure detailed resource utilization information. Capacity metrics assist organizations in understanding and measuring the consumption of IT resources in a virtualized, grid environment, enabling usage reporting and chargebacks.

Most application infrastructures are heterogeneous, including multiple operating systems and various types of application servers or Web servers. WebSphere Extended Deployment eases the management and monitoring challenges presented by these mixed environments through the following two new features:

  • Broad operating system platform support including 32-bit and 64-bit platforms; distributed and mainframe support, giving additional flexibility in deployment choices.
    • AIX®
    • HP-UX (32-bit, 64-bit)
    • Linux™ Intel™ (32-bit, 64-bit)
    • Linux on zSeries
    • Microsoft™ Windows™ (32-bit, 64-bit)
    • Solaris
    • z/OS (available at a later date; refer to the Statement of direction section)

      Refer to the Technical information section of this announcement for a comprehensive list of software requirements and supported platforms.

  • Mixed-server environment support enables a Remote Agent to be deployed within heterogeneous server deployments.

    WebSphere Extended Deployment for Mixed Server Environments V6.0 provides an operational monitoring agent, called the Remote Agent, which can be used to feed CPU utilization and health information for both WebSphere and non-WebSphere servers back to the WebSphere Extended Deployment On Demand Router component. This enables a unified workload management and visual performance monitoring approach for mixed server environments. A full WebSphere Extended Deployment license should be purchased for each processor on which the On Demand Router component will be installed. A WebSphere Extended Deployment for Mixed Server Environment license should be purchased for each processor on which the Remote Agent component will be installed.

Charge metrics definitions

Per processor charging under Full Capacity: In Full Capacity charging, where charges are based on a capacity-based metric, such as a processor, Proofs of Entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for all capacity that is active on the server where the program or a component of the program is run.

As an example, a customer has ordered a server with four processors. The server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive." Thus, four processors are active for the customer.

Notes

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each 'core' to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the IBM eServer zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux™ (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This program has warranty for a minimum of one year from acquisition from IBM or authorized IBM Business Partner. The warranty provided to the customer, for at least one year from acquisition, is access to databases (read Web sites) for program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or obtain otherwise and install at leisure.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option that is available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your IS technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center.
