Because application scalability is an important quality of service in most enterprise software topologies, enterprise quality Java™ EE applications are commonly deployed and executed in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment clusters. Even though the practical size of a cluster can be limited. This limitation can be overcome with a useful technique for achieving extreme application scalability that we refer to as the "super cluster". Part 1 of this two-part article defined a super cluster and examined how it can be used with the HTTP plug-in and IBM WebSphere Proxy Server. In this conclusion, the discussion is expanded it to include the IBM WebSphere DMZ Secure Proxy Server V7, the on demand router in IBM WebSphere Virtual Enterprise, and IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
