Build Breakthrough Performance into Any SOA or Advanced Computing Application To meet unprecedented demand, IT organizations must improve application performance by an order of magnitude. Improving performance is even more crucial in SOA environments, which demand far more computing power than older architectures. Today’s multi-core servers can deliver the performance businesses require, but few applications take full advantage of them. Now, software innovator Cory Isaacson introduces an easier, more flexible approach to parallel processingone that any IT organization can use to attain unprecedented levels of performance. Isaacson shows how Software Pipeline models can help you scale applications to any level required, maximize resources, deliver on challenging objectives, and achieve unprecedented ROI. He illuminates these techniques with real-life business scenarios and proven design patternseverything architects, analysts, and developers need to start using them immediately. This book’s in-depth coverage includes How Software Pipelines work, what they can accomplish, and how you can apply them using the Software Pipelines Optimization Cycle (SPOC) Scaling applications via parallel processing while guaranteeing order of processing in mission-critical applications Solving performance problems in existing applications, and resolving bottlenecks in existing processes A complete, easy-to-adapt Pipelines Reference Framework Detailed code examples reflecting proven Pipelines Patterns Techniques that can be applied in any industry, with any programming language Specific architectural and design solutions for common business and technical challenges The future of Software Pipelines: emerging opportunities for “greenfield” development Tools, sample templates, and source code at www.informit.com/title/0137137974, Download
