Burt Beckwith has volunteered to give us another great talk before his SpringOne presentation!
How is your lone web server going to handle all the traffic you'll get when it lands on Slashdot or the front page of Digg? Probably not well. To prepare for all of this popularity you're going to need multiple servers, but there's more to it than buying hardware.
In this talk we'll look at implementing Tomcat's HTTP Session clustering, distributed second-level Hibernate caching using EhCache, and using the JDBC store feature of Quartz so your servers can handle the load while maintaining consistent data.
Also, there will be pizza!
