We'd like to use this as a repository for not only the usual news about upcoming products and features, but also as a way to keep you informed of what we're doing on our side of the fence to enable current and future solutions for the explosion of XTP applications and patterns that we're hoping become not only useful but also vital in customer portfolios of all shapes and sizes.

This page is a starting point for folks who want to learn about and use WebSphere eXtreme Scale. The idea is that it will serve as a tutorial, which will grow over time.

Our Blog will chronicle additions to the content. Feel free to comment on this page, blog entries, and/or use our Forum. Feel free to suggest new topics to cover, as well as add your own information. We want these pages to be used and developed by folks interested in using and exploiting WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
