2 Internet Application Trends The Need for High Availability and Scalability DISA Architecture Overview Load Balancing Layer Application Services Layer Data Resources Layer Security in a DISA Architecture Systems Management in a DISA Architecture DISA Testing and Evaluation DISA: Small Business to Enterprise Summary

3 Key trends show that scalability and availability of Internet/Intranet applications is an increasingly important concern Compaq has documented and tested best practice architectures and approaches to scalability/availability for Internet applications Compaq testing confirms that the Distributed Internet Server Array (DISA) Architecture delivers linear scalability and extremely high availability The DISA architecture allows enterprises and ISPs to build reliable, high performing Internet applications using industry standard platforms

13 $! Balancing load across multiple application servers is preferred over deploying a single server with lots of memory and processors Centralizing content on amply configured, clustered servers is preferred over replication on application servers Use redundancy at all potential single points of failure Build applications so that user state information is not maintained on a single application server

14 Load Balancing Layer

15 !%& " Intelligent load balancing technology offers three major benefits: SCALABILITY: intelligently distribute the aggregate load across multiple servers AVAILABILITY: accommodate planned and unplanned server downtime without system downtime MANAGEMENT: monitor system performance/availability Round Robin DNS addresses scalability but not availability or management No feedback mechanism to know if servers are down Manual intervention does not take effect immediately Intelligent load balancing offers significant benefits over RRDNS

43 $ The DISA architecture is the only effective approach for scaling up this particular application The DISA architecture handles failure events with minimal performance impact and little or no downtime Current NT Clustering technology can significantly improve availability (but not scalability) Multi-server systems require a robust approach to systems management While nothing beats an inexpensive standalone server for value alone, DISA delivers the best price/performance for highly available, highly scalable systems With the DISA architecture, industry standard platforms can provide uncompromising availability, scalability, value, and manageability

52 !4 Internet Applications are becoming business and mission critical Without the right architecture, success means failure What s the plan for handling expected/unexpected temporary traffic spikes? What s the long term scalability plan? You never get a second chance to make a first impression 10 seconds is the response time limit for keeping the user s attention Web users do not have to tolerate poor quality

53 ! 4 Linear Scalability - The Compaq DISA architecture can accommodate the largest Internet application sites: Large, expensive SMP based systems are not the better alternative - Rapidly increase capacity with inexpensive industry standard servers High Availability - Ability to meet business critical uptime requirements - Gracefully accommodates hardware and software failures - No single points of failure

54 ! 4 Compatibility with Prevailing Web Applications - CGIs, Microsoft Active Server Pages, Allaire Cold Fusion - NetDynamics, HAHT Software HAHTsite, and Netscape High Value - More performance and availability per dollar - Leverages the price/performance benefits of industry standard platforms without compromising scalability or availability

55 ! 4 Every customer visit can be an opportunity for increased sales What to look for Internet applications suffering from poor performance Internet applications deployed on architectures with many points of failure Small customers that will be growing rapidly Large customers that are growing rapidly
