In this chapter we will examine various approaches to designing and sizing large scale Java platforms. The three key topics discussed are:
• How to design and size a new environment
• How to design and size a new large scale Java platforms when migrating an existing physical deployment to a virtualized one
• How to design and size large scale Java platforms for latency sensitive in memory databases such as vFabric SQLFire as an example
When deploying completely new environments it is important to conduct an extensive performance test so that any potential bottlenecks are exposed early in the lifecycle of the ...
