This talk focuses on the architecture and the patterns implemented behind the scenes that enable the GigaSpaces XAP (ZAP) platform to scale linearly and still provide a rich and fault-tolerant programming model.
Learn how to leverage the simplicity and consistency of Spring and achieve the scalability of Google. Understand the programming paradigm known as SBA and Discover what the power of Transparent Partitioning and Colocation can do for applications ranging from Logistics to Order Processing to Algorithmic Trading.
Speaker Bio: As Sr. Director, Worldwide Technical Communications with GigaSpaces Technologies Inc, Owen translates the new architectural concepts and technical capabilities of space-based solutions into accessible formats so that technologists can adapt them rapidly into their environments and gain their maximum benefit. Owens' areas of expertise include J2EE design patterns and performance tuning of J2EE applications. Prior to GigaSpaces, Owen worked as Principal J2EE Product Specialist with Identify Software. Before that Owen acted as Senior Enterprise Architect with The Middleware Company where he specialized in B2B, EJB and J2EE training and consulting with a special emphasis on webMethods B2B server and, BEA WebLogic Servers. Owen has over the years delivered architecture consulting, mentoring and training to dozens of companies and advised them on how to best architect new applications ranging from e-commerce to stock-trading. Many of his engagements involved developing application prototypes on-site. Prior to The Middleware-Company, Owen was Senior Consultant and Partner in The New Customware Company, where his duties mirrored almost exactly those he executed with the Middleware Company. Prior to CustomWare, Owen was Senior Consultant and Instructor in the Professional Services organization at Inprise (Borland) (an EJB/J2EE & CORBA vendor), where he provided consulting and mentoring to customers in not only building large applications with EJB/J2EE and CORBA, but also specifically on the instrumentation, monitoring and management of applications developed using these technologies.
