Resource: Planning your Successful Coherence Deployment

|"How do I take my Coherence installation out of a concept stage and into production?"
We often hear questions similar to this from customers, so we're responding with a free whitepaper that explores that very process. Of course, there's no cookie-cutter answer since your infrastructure is uniquely set up to meet your hardware and software needs. But, we do have a lot of best practices that can save you a ton of time and heartache.

Planning a Successful Deployment
|As an example, Coherence has very few software requirements, but it's important you know that Coherence clusters are certified against Java and not the underlying operating system. Thus, you will need to consider the JVM, monitoring tools and underlying OS when migrating. This free whitepaper explores that fact.
Another pitfall that many customers face is the allocation of production resources based on the normal usage requirements of the applications they're looking to support. However, if any hardware failures occur, Coherence will be forced to process more data with fewer resources, thereby straining your systems and affecting customer experiences. Considerations for this event are outlined in both this white paper and the Coherence Administration Guide to help you. These are just a couple of small tastes of the best practices and awareness items explored in this free resource.
Coherence utilizes rack safety to safeguard against hardware failure
A snippet from the paper:
Taking a Coherence Proof of Concept (PoC) application and making it ready for production involves a range of considerations and additional steps, which are not always obvious to architects and developers. The environment of a production application is quite different to that of development and steps to secure, monitor and manage the application will need to be taken. High Availability plans to meet expected SLA’s will need to be put in place, which in turn will involve appropriate procedures to upgrade, patch and recover...Download your free white paper now to continue reading.
