Businesses make decisions about what platform to deploy their applications based on many factors. One of those factors is the performance of the platform. Platform performance can refer to the how quickly the application starts to help developers make the most use of their time or how much throughput the platform can handle. In other words, performance can mean different things to different people.
How to get the best performance of your WebSphere environment.
No matter the industry, clients are looking to reduce costs while still getting peak performance to provide an exceptional customer experience. The IBM WebSphere Liberty and IBM WebSphere traditional application servers provide a platform that provides stellar performance for client to deploy their applications.
The difference between a well written application and one that isn't coded well can be quite significant in terms of its performance, especially due to critical design decisions such as the caching solution to employ to reduce the frequency of database access for example. Even if the application was designed and coded perfectly, it can perform poorly if the platform that it gets deployed on is configured sub-optimally. Therefore, how you tune your WebSphere platform and follow best practices for your application can make the difference between a well-performing application and one that performs abysmally.
How you can learn more?
Learn more about how the WebSphere and Java Performance teams have been working to improve the performance of key metrics of the traditional WebSphere Application Server (tWAS) and Liberty products by attending an 24 May webinar at 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time, “WebSphere Performance - Latest Results, Best Practices and Diagnostics.”
Some key topics we will cover during the webinar:
- Recent improvements in the IBM WebSphere Liberty and IBM WebSphere traditional application servers on several different performance metrics. Improvements that have been made to many different components in the Liberty runtime will be described to allow clients to determine their applicability to their own application environments.
- Comparisons across multiple platforms and in different cloud/virtualized environments, including ones that are running microservices applications to quantify how well Liberty performs in those scenarios.
- Best practices on how to configure your WebSphere environments to get additional performance.
- How to diagnose performance problems like when you are not getting the expected throughput from your application or when the memory of the application server instance is too large.
