Carrier Grade Converged Services with SailFin and MySQL Cluster
By harpreet on Apr 14, 2009
Convergence of communications network onto IP based networks, provides an opportunity to Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to reach new markets. To implement solutions for these markets, require the solutions to be highly available, have high throughput and scalability and minimal latency.
The recently published Carrier Grade Service Execution Environment paper outlines an Event Driven Architecture solution using open source components. Sun GlassFish Communications Server (SailFin) and MySQL offer means to achieve high scalability, throughput for Communications Service Providers.
Although the paper outlines solutions for Communications Service Providers, it is an interesting read from an application server (hint GlassFish). A typical Application Server administrator can glean interesting information on scaling their appserver as well.
