Proxy server versus the HTTP plug-in

Since IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Version 6.0, the WebSphere proxy server has been available to provide intelligent routing of HTTP requests based on configured routing rules and performance metrics. Although not as smart as the on-demand router component of IBM WebSphere Virtual Enterprise, the proxy server can provide services above-and-beyond the traditional WebSphere HTTP plug-in implementation seen in practically all IHS-fronted WebSphere Application Server clusters. This article compares these solutions so you can make determine the best choice for your requirements


IBM WebSphere: An Icon of Progress (by ibm)

IBM WebSphere, created by a small team in 1998, has developed into a key driver of IBM’s growth over the past decade and is now used by more than 100,000 companies around the world. Today, the WebSphere line encompasses almost all areas of business: application integration, business process management, and e-commerce, just to name a few.

Easing the pain of applications delivery • The Register

Here is the lowdown on what application virtualization represents, as opposed to other forms of virtualization.

Application virtualisation separates the application not just from the underlying hardware but also from the operating system. That means, for example, that you can run applications side by side in separate virtualised spaces without fear of clashes between them or with the operating system.

Application virtualisation is primarily seen as a desktop technology. A key advantage is that you can deliver applications in a variety of ways because they are independent of the client architecture.

Just a mirage

Applications can be installed inside their own virtualised space on the client, or they can be streamed so that the user sees only an image of the application, with almost no code downloaded. You can deploy applications quickly and manage them centrally, keeping users current with security patches and updates.

This can be a big win for users. There is often a tension between the device they use and the applications they need to do their job. Sometimes these applications are supported on the device they want, but all too often they are not.

Allowing users to select their device and know that pretty much any application will run on it could be a big selling point…

Keep it simple

Server applications can be virtualised too, for many of the same reasons that apply to desktop applications and with similar advantages. For example, it simplifies application and operating system updates and deployment, resulting in fewer application images to maintain and a reduction in management costs.

This is especially useful for server applications, which are usually much more complex to install and configure than desktop applications. Additionally, server applications are tightly coupled into virtual machine images, making it tough to update either without disruption. Once the application is virtualised, this problem is mitigated to a large degree.

As with any technology, there are disadvantages. Application virtualisation adds complexity - the bugbear of any IT deployment. As we all know, the more complex it is, the more choices need to be made and the more likely it is that things will go wrong. And when they do, problems will be harder to find and eliminate.

User rage

Once the system is up and running, it will need to be maintained and managed, which is a cost item. Virtualising applications may also increase back-end costs: applications that are no longer running on client machines still need CPU time and memory, so they need to be factored into server capacity planning.

And on the desktop side, users won’t take kindly to having their applications messed about with. Get it wrong and the helpdesk lines will glow.

All that said, however, virtualisation can help you deliver applications on demand, reduce testing times massively, and make application deployment easier and faster.

And on a strategic level, it may be a key element of what the finance director is promising the board right now.

SOA integration " The detached island of information " Serve the global petrochemical industry high-efficently

IBM was announced a few days ago, among them a brand WebSphere assisted Kingdee to help the Changjiang River of Nanjing oil of Chinese long boat to transport the company (are abbreviate as the oil luck of Nanjing, same below) Succeed in implementing “ Enterprise’s information application and integrated system ” The project, thus realize “ ageing is managed, finely melt the homework ” Business demand,“ last petrochemical industry to realization of it ” Offer the informationization to support. This cooperation, it is IBM that establishes “ SOA innovative centre ” by cooperating with Kingdee Company too Later, helped the embodiment that Kingdee Company promotes the whole ability of SOA solution to reflect.

Transport the new round of information construction with SOA helping hand Nanjing oil

The Nanjing oil was transported and established in 1975, it was “ Chinese long boat ” The shipping enterprises that specialize in the petroleum under command and the products are transported, its oil ship, supertanker course spread all over the whole world, it is the second largest petroleum transport enterprise in China. Position “ serve the global petrochemical industry ” .

Nanjing oil transport, open way of information construction from 1985, 20 more than development of year make inside “ detached island of message ” Stand in great numbers, the information system that the competitive environment of market of the internationalization is transported to the Nanjing oil has proposed more high requirement, current situation and business demand of enterprise’s informationization develop mismatch. Enterprises need to improve the information-based intensity urgently, simplify and optimize the internal procedure by this, realize the information sharing, promote decision, response rate, thus reduce risk and cost, increase the gain on investments. In 2005, in order to implement the Chinese long boat" the lard was transported “ Development strategy, the company concentrates top leader, business segments and information department, start the new round of information construction, ” promotes industrialization with the informationization in order to respond to the country, use industrialization to bring along the informationization “ Call.

” ageing is being managed, finely melt the homework “ to lead to Informationization employ being integrated in road,transport Nanjing oil more plain sailingly, have encountered the typical difficult problems of much maritime industry: It is scattered to run the ship height, remote management is difficult; Every operation system, supervising system opposing connection are difficult, the integrated intensity is low, cause the severe ” detached island of information “ Phenomenon.

The Changjiang River of Nanjing oil of Chinese long boat is transported to Mr. Yu Jun, Vice President of company, and thought, it is two big problems to transport the new round of information system and build the most key one with Nanjing oil, one procedure optimize and integration question, another one is the question of elimination and information sharing of the detached island of the information. "SOA has become basic idea and basic chassis of a more advanced management aspect on the whole IT circle, our problem to be solved is exactly that SOA framework can bring too. ” Mr. Yu Jun shows.

JOB OF THE DAY: "Le Creuset seeks an Ecommerce Web Manager." (Charleston, SC)

HARRY’S COMMENTS: Last year, Susan Emmett of The Times UK wrote an article called “Top Ten: Iconic Kitchen Items.” At #1 was Le Creuset’s cast iron cocotte, about which Ms Emmett wrote …

“This is not a pan, it’s a rite of passage from a life of pizza takeaways to one of slow-cooked beef bourguignon and it is one of the most popular items on the John Lewis wedding register. Those tying the knot before the Sixties will have one in volcanic orange, the original colour dating back to the company’s beginnings in 1925. Last year’s newly-weds bought cerise while those getting hitched alongside Kate and William may opt for the latest midnight blue …”

Her love of the product was genuine, and for good reason: Le Creuset is to chefs what Ducati is to motorcyclists, Gibson is to guitarists, and Louisville Slugger is to baseball players.

A staple, yet so much more.

What we are looking for here is a marketing oriented technologist. You’ve heard me use that term before, and it refers to someone who sees ecommerce technology as a means to an end – not an end unto itself. We want this person to improve conversions. The site’s traffic is not bad, but the conversion rate is simply not where it needs to be. This hire will determine what platform fixes get into the project queue. If the platform fixes don’t improve conversions, then they shouldn’t be in the queue.

Meaning, we are NOT looking for a technology drone. The ideal candidate must look at Le Creuset’s technology piece and ask “What is this technology capable of doing for the customer? What is it capable of doing for revenues?” Among other things, the new hire will impact conversion rates, average SKUs per item, repeat customer rate, and marketing costs per order. For real. For very real.

Not only will you be expected to leverage IBM’s Websphere, but you’ll be expected to work effectively with Crossview, Le Creuset’s highly-valued integration partner. A major opportunity for the company is improving how the site renders content and using analytics to revise how content is acquired and displayed. Additionally, there is an excellent opportunity to mine customer data to improve the user experience.

Accordingly, the ideal candidate will have meaningful analytics processing capability because Le Creuset believes that “if you are disconnected from what consumers are doing on your website, then you cannot optimize your conversion funnel based on known site behaviors.”

A great job, any way you slice it.

As usual, I’m packing a ton of excellent information on this search. I had two calls with this client: A 45 minute meet-end-greet with Faye Gooding, Le Creuset’s CEO for the Americas, and a 75 minute kickoff call with the hiring manager, Alex Campbell, Le Creuset’s Director Retail Marketing. Alex is very smart, and we got nitty gritty.

The job is based in Charleston SC, one of the top five places that I’d like to live, personally.  FANTASTIC quality of life.  Right up there with Austin and Boulder.  And based on several online calculators, this role’s base compensation will put you into the top quintile of SC’s earners.

Really: To love cooking and ecommerce and to live in Charleston making great money and traveling abroad occasionally. I can’t believe they pay me to tell you this story. And I can’t believe they’d pay you to live it.
