As IT organizations across the globe work towards delivering their SOA projects, concerns still linger on how to best provide performance, scalability, and availability for their SOA based applications. Fortunately, a new generation of technology innovations is changing the game of how we think about architecting distributed computing architectures.

Join David Chappell, Oracle’s Vice President and Chief Technologist for SOA, at his discussion of how grid technology, combined with service-orientation principles and virtualization techniques, can enable the next generation of service-oriented architecture. Using specific patterns and techniques, next generation grid-based, service-oriented application architectures can achieve predictable scalability and high availability in public and private cloud environments.
