TECH-B13 Portal Farm Topology (Instance Cloning) Implementation on Public Clouds
Paul Kelsey, WebSphere Portal Operations and Cloud Architect

Cloud computing enables enterprises of all sizes to deliver business with faster time-to-market by using the flexibility of cloud-based easy-to-launch environments. In some WebSphere Portal cloud architectures, traditional WebSphere clustered servers might not be best suited for cloud infrastructure and varying operations level needs. The existing IBM WebSphere Portal Farm topology types (Unique Installations and Shared File System), are considered, not as replacement, but as a possible cost-effective option to clustering. Attend this session to understand the application of a new approach (Instance Cloning) to enterprise-wide IBM WebSphere Portal Farm deployment solutions on the public cloud. We’ll highlight the benefits gained by enterprise customer examples as a result. It is an amalgamation of the strengths of Cloud Services Architecture and IBM WebSphere Portal Farm Topology that derives a scalable, robust and proven architecture. The session will include the concepts of the farm-type topology and cover the various tests conducted on the cloud for variants of portal farm topology, the observations of the results and how the portal farm instance cloning can address customer business needs while offering a high availability portal solution. Additionally, it includes the consideration for IBM Web Content Manager configuration with the subscriber, listener and syndication aspects. This is a proven architecture deployment performed on the latest edition of IBM WebSphere Portal V8. (Level: Intermediate)
