Clustering and load balancing techniques are important best practices for making web applications process more work and do it faster. But if the services are spread out on a network, those same techniques can create bottlenecks and add complexity in the services that provide the data used by the application. This article describes how the multi-master replication feature of WebSphere® eXtreme Scale adds data mirroring capability to existing ObjectGrid functions. Using this feature, data can be kept close to the services that need it while still maintaining a unified view. This article also describes an important workaround that enables HTTP session data to be mirrored in the multi-master grid.
