Description

Overcome traditional IT performance limitations to dynamically adapt to the size and shape of your business

Today's dynamic business environments and economic uncertainty mean organizations must work smarter to remain competitive and responsive to changing customer demands.

Key to working smarter is business agility and cost optimization. Our planet is becoming increasingly smart and interconnected. As more people around the planet join the digital world, they drive exponential growth of business and non-business transactions for everything from web commerce and RFID processing in dynamic supply chains to on-line social networking and gaming. In order to meet demands, you need to ensure that critical applications experiencing huge demand levels, requiring immediate response, or expanding to massive scale can deliver.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale delivers extreme transaction processing capabilities that can help ensure you have a Smart service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based application infrastructure to support your most demanding business-critical applications. WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 can help you to overcome traditional IT performance limitations to generate the levels of global scale, process efficiencies, and business intelligence needed for smarter business outcomes, such as sustainable competitive advantage and maximized revenues.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale is designed to work in heterogeneous environments across all leading platforms and server virtualization environments. It can process massive volumes of transactions with extreme efficiency and linear scalability. WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 operates as an in-memory data grid that dynamically processes, partitions, replicates, and manages application data and business logic across hundreds of servers.

With WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1, IBM significantly expands these capabilities to extend the value of a linearly scalable elastic data store to a broad range of business applications that utilize the WebSphere Application Server dynamic cache service.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 can ease the burden on the application developer by handling many of the common data store exception and retry tasks. In addition, WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 can be integrated into existing management tools.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 offers these new features:

  • Simple cache for enterprise applications running on WebSphere Application Server that offers near linear scalability to a broad variety of business applications with minimal invasive changes. This lets you meet the growing needs of your business.
  • Support for Windows/.Net applications through ADO.Net Data Services specification support.
  • Monitoring console that can provide real-time views into the WebSphere eXtreme Scale data grid.
  • Invalidation enhancements that can enable faster, more efficient caching within WebSphere Commerce scenarios.
  • Expanded WebSphere stack integration, including support for Portal V7.0.
  • New Data Serializer plug-in interfaces that allow storage of arbitrary data in the grid in a user-defined, serialized format such that query, indexes and application code can more efficiently interrogate data object data without inflating them into a Java object form.
  • Cache entries in WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 that can now be stored in eXtremeMemory. When the DataSerializer is used or the key is a built in java type (string, int, and so on) on 64-bit x86 Linux platforms, all data can be stored in native memory, avoiding expensive garbage collection costs, simplifying Java Virtual Machine (JVM) tuning, and allowing for more predictable response times when storing large amounts of data in the grid.
  • Ability for an administrator to include grid queries in tracking the source of SQL requests to IBM DB2 via support for DB2 Performance Monitor.
  • XTP capability enhancements that are designed to offer better performance, consistent and predictable response times, and lower memory costs.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale can enhance applications to support growing business needs through the following innovative usage scenarios and configurations:

  • Simple data and database: Applications can access data structures to improve performance and throughput using a WebSphere eXtreme Scale configuration as a local cache. WebSphere eXtreme Scale enhances this traditional data-caching scenario by offering fail-over capability.
  • Client or server: A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) can have a local WebSphere eXtreme Scale grid, which sits in front of a remote grid serving as a "near cache" for a subset of the data. This allows you to leverage a large remote cache to offload back-end processing or n help speed up access to cached results. Applications can use the distributed locking services provided by the remote grid to coordinate access to shared data across clients.
  • Map and reduced support: WebSphere eXtreme Scale clients can invoke agents that run against massive amounts of data on multiple nodes in parallel. They can then aggregate the results stored in the grid in parallel.

Extreme scalability of application patterns and usage scenarios are facilitated by the use of a non-centralized, peering configuration, and dynamic deployment model allowing WebSphere eXtreme Scale maps to potentially span thousands of JVMs and allowing extremely large datasets.

In addition, WebSphere eXtreme Scale lets you add more partitions to help increase capacity. It includes efficient, new algorithms to allow in-memory caches to grow elastically as the number of available JVMs or actual machines changes.

Traditionally distributed cache products use Map APIs as their primary programming model. WebSphere eXtreme Scale offers this, and allows graphs of objects to be easily pushed to the cache. Simple Java objects can be annotated, and a simpler API can transparently allow these graphs to be fetched from the grid, as well as to push any changes made by the application back to the grid.

This can significantly simplify programming compared with traditional JCache or Map-based APIs, helping to improve productivity of the application developers by allowing them to focus on the core business logic.

Further, as the amount of data within the data grid grows, and usage scenarios become more ubiquitous, it is increasingly important to address challenges related to operational flexibility. A major challenge relates to managing a data grid running on thousands of servers.

The WebSphere eXtreme Scale Catalog Service automatically lays out data (primaries and replicas) across the set of online servers in a balanced fashion. As servers are started or stopped, it automatically adjusts and elastically moves data across the grid help to ensure that failed replica servers are replaced, and spreads the data across all servers in the grid for optimum performance and continuous availability.

WebSphere eXtreme Scale offers a flexible approach to the deployment of grid components or an existing cluster packaging and deployment framework. This is accomplished via the introduction of a centralized coordinator service called the Catalog Service, that can help:

  • Achieves high availability by clustering, and uses synchronous memory replication among grid members to persist the runtime state of the data grid
  • Enables optimal performance by automatically balancing data and partitions over the set of servers hosting a grid

The new WebSphere Application Server console extensions allows administrators and deployers to enable eXtreme Scale session persistence, and to enable eXtreme Scale as a Dynacache provider directly from the WebSphere Application Server console. With the WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 console, administrators and deployers can monitor eXtreme Scale grids in a fashion that is already integrated into their current usage flows. The WebSphere eXtreme Scale V7.1.1 t console can support AIX (32-bit), AIX (64-bit), Linux x86, Linux x86-64, Windows (32-bit), and Windows (64-bit).

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the Program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
