Fundamentos de Payara Server Parte 6 - Creando un cluster dinámico con conmutación por fallas en Payara Server con Hazelcast

Avanzando más nuestra serie de blogs de introducción, esta entrada mostrará como puedes escalar de forma dinámica tu cluster, y como Payara Server maneja la conmutación por fallas entre miembros del cluster.

 

See here for the original version in English language.

 

La conmutación por fallas es la habilidad de continuar proporcionando acceso a nuestro sitio web o aplicación en el caso de que un servidor falle. Es una parte importante de un servicio que goza de alta disponibilidad, cuyo objetivo es minimizar los tiempos de inactividad a lo largo de tu infraestructura de servicios.

What's Coming in Payara Server 5?

First quarter of 2018 will bring with it our long-awaited Payara 5, fresh out of Beta. Scheduled for a Q1 release (download the Release Candidate here), Payara 5 brings with it a host of improvements to Payara Server and Payara Micro. Bringing long-awaited upgrades to a raft of APIs, as well as a rethinking of the cluster concept, Payara 5 also brings us up to date with Eclipse MicroProfile 1.2 and the core functionality of GlassFish 5.

 

Payara Server 5 Data Sheet 

Monitoring JMX Using the Notification Service

Previously in GlassFish and Payara Server, if you wanted to monitor the status of your application's MBeans, you would have to rely mostly on external programs to capture the data. In Payara Server 174, we integrated the JMX Monitoring service with our existing notification service, meaning that you can now remotely receive monitoring data via any of our notifiers, from email to Slack.

Payara Server Basics Part 7 - Creating a simple Payara Server Cluster in Windows with DCOM

Taking our introductory series onwards, this blog will look at how you set up a simple Payara Server cluster on Windows using the native remote control protocol, DCOM. We will set up two instances on Windows 10, controlled by a third Domain Administration Server (DAS) instance on Windows 7 via DCOM, and cluster them together using Hazelcast. Finally, we will deploy our trusty clusterjsp application to demonstrate how the data is being shared across our instances.

Payara Server Basics Part 6 - Dynamic Clustering and Failover on Payara Server with Hazelcast

Further developing our introductory blog series, this post will look at how you can dynamically scale your cluster, and how Payara Server handles failover between cluster members.

 

Failover is the ability to continue to provide access to your website or application in the event of a server failing. It is an important part of high availability hosting, which aims to minimise downtime across your server infrastructure.

Payara Server Basics Part 5 - Configuring Sticky Sessions for Payara Server with Apache Web Server

This article continues our introductory blog series on setting up a simple cluster with Payara Server, carrying straight on from our last blog where we set up load balancer on our cluster.

 

By clustering our Payara Servers together and balancing traffic between them with Apache Web Server we keep the benefits of having our application accessible from a single URL and gain the resilience and expansion prospects from having our application deployed across multiple instances.

Fundamentos de Payara Server Parte 5 - Configurando Sesiones Persistentes para Payara Server con Servidor Web Apache

Este artículo continúa nuestra serie de blogs de introducción para configurar un cluster con Payara Server, continuando desde nuestro último articulo donde configuramos un balanceador de carga para nuestro cluster.

Payara Server Basics Part 4 - Load Balancing Across Payara Server Instances with Apache Web Server

Continuing our introductory blog series, this blog will demonstrate how to add load balancing capability to Apache Web Server and forward to our simple Payara Server cluster. 

A load balancer can redirect requests to multiple instances, primarily for the purpose of distributing incoming requests between cluster members based on pre-determined rules. This could be a simple "round-robin" algorithm, where the workload is distributed to each instance in turn, or a weighted algorithm where requests are delivered based on a pre-determined weight for each cluster member.

Fundamentos de Payara Server Parte 4 - Balanceo de Carga a través de Instancias de Payara Server con Servidor Web Apache

Continuando con nuestra serie de blogs de introducción, este blog va a demostrar como añadir la capacidades de balanceo de carga a un Servidor Web Apache y asi re-enviar las peticiones HTTP a nuestro cluster de Payara Server.

What's New in Payara Server 172?
