Oracle’s Optimized Solution for WebLogic Suite: An Optimal In-Memory Data Grid Architecture: White Paper [23793]
Balancing Oracle Coherence Software with Oracle/Sun Servers

"Oracle's Optimized Solution for WebLogic Suite: An Optimal In-Memory Data Grid Architecture" is a technical white paper that discusses a drop-in implementation of Oracle Coherence running on Oracle's Sun servers utilizing Oracle Fusion Middleware components -- chiefly WebLogic Suite -- citing benchmark results that substantiate the scalability and performance of web-facing architectures. The results demonstrate that creating an architecture to transfer the burden of scalability from the vertically-scaled database tier to the horizontally-scaled grid can enable new levels of scalability in applications. Customers can use the best practices derived from this tested configuration to create an Oracle Coherence deployment that balances the Coherence software track with the appropriate Sun servers from Oracle.
