Thursday, December 4 2008 the topic “high availability” in the Bachelor module Enterprise Application will be lectured by a high qualified developer from JBoss.
Dr. Bela Ban a former IBM and Fujitsu researcher, currently leading the JGroup and Red Hat Clustering Team, will reading a lecture in Luzern. He focus on reliable multicasting and replicated state. In the module Enterprise Application we assigned a significant importance to the part of high availability. The students must know how their application have to be build to fit in an clustered environment. That’s why we ask the expert. The students will also learn what clustering means in theory.
Hr. Bela Ban has done some research and testing in our Enterprise Lab using the multi core Niagara processors. The goal was to improve the threading model of JGroups running on 6 and 8 core processors. He also gave us valuable feedback for fine tuning the speed of the Enterprise Lab Network.
