Racing JBoss AS7 bootup across clouds

A session at JUDCon/JAX London

Tuesday 1st November, 2011

10:50am to 11:40am (GMT)

Developers want to release code as fast as possible. Compute clouds want developers to release code to them. This is a story about how these two goals converge.

The jclouds project formerly used JBoss AS6 to perform functional testing of compute clouds. We felt running an application server is a pretty useful model for what developers look to achieve. When we moved to JBoss AS7, we were expecting a relatively smooth update. In reality, we found a surprising performance story!

This presentation will review performance considerations when deploying application servers across multiple cloud providers. We'll discuss to install, bootstrap, and reboot time that affect your agility with real numbers on over a dozen compute clouds like Amazon EC2.

This is a no-hype talk: when you leave, you'll know how to make your own jclouds tests to test your cloud deployment of choice.
