IBM® WebSphere® Commerce has become the one of the leading solutions for web retail. WebSphere Commerce makes extensive use of the WebSphere dynamic cache feature for performance optimization. IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale is IBM’s powerful elastic cache solution that can provide both scale and performance improvement to meet increasing business demands. WebSphere Commerce can leverage WebSphere eXtreme Scale caching by eliminating duplicate dynamic cache entries and the frequent invalidation processing that's necessary to keep the cache synchronized during high stress situations. The combination of WebSphere Commerce and WebSphere eXtreme Scale can achieve a potential reduction in response time and facilitate faster start time for new WebSphere Commerce servers added to a cluster. Perhaps just as impressive is the fact this can be accomplished with relatively simple configuration changes. This article is a guide to moving from a WebSphere Commerce solution using the default dynamic cache provider to one that leverages WebSphere eXtreme Scale as the dynamic cache provider.
