Today we are excited to announce a major product innovation - Oracle Coherence is now available as a feature of the Java Cloud Service (JCS). Effective immediately, users of JCS can use our cloud tooling to optionally set up Coherence within JCS.
Flexibility is a key part of the solution. You can either select an initial capacity for the Coherence data tier:
Or use the "Advanced" option to have full control over the number of virtual machines you want for Coherence, the number of managed Coherence servers per virtual machine, and the heap size of each managed server:
The WebLogic Management Framework is used under the covers allowing you, the user to develop, deploy, manage and monitor your applications via Managed Coherence Servers.
Because the same cloud tooling creates both WebLogic and Coherence, the experience of using the two together in our cloud is a fully integrated and seamless service. As is standard with JCS, you can patch Coherence as you please in an automated rolling fashion. Backups and restores are fully coordinated with the rest of the stack.
Common reasons for using Coherence with JCS:
- Offload and protect shared cloud services and databases
- Deliver real-time data to cloud applications
- Provide transparency and high availability in the cloud's data grid tier
When running a WebLogic 12.1.3+ environment in the Java Cloud Service you have access to all the Coherence cloud tooling. For Java Cloud Service Enterprise Edition 11g with Coherence, you can manually create your own Coherence cluster.
Over the coming year, we plan to release a number of Coherence-related data grid and caching services. Stay tuned for more details.
