Scalability, high availability, manageability
- if at least one of those concerns you then
connection management must be taken very
seriously just as "Location! Location! Location!"
in real-estate business.
During the presentation we will review the
most important aspects of connection management
such as client and server-side load balancing,
connection failover techniques and real-time
load balancing advisory.
We will consider different application environments
and languages and specifics of connection management
in each environment.
