Service Virtualization: Got Grid?

There is considerable attention being paid to service oriented architectures (SOA) and their promise of leveraging new and existing application components – services – in composite applications that may span multiple business units within an organization. While the construction or enablement of these services is well defined, what is often left as an assumption is that once deployed, the service will simply be available. The reality is that if consideration is not given to the reliability, availability, and recoverability of your services then you may find yourself leaping from the frying pan and into the fire. This presentation will discuss the use of service virtualization and grid technology to enable service execution. Using existing grid technologies, organizations can achieve guaranteed, horizontal scaling of service execution across the entire com... (more)
