Virtualisation technology in an SOA environment — it may be green and agile, but do you understand the risks?


Paul Brebner



In this presentation we provide an overview of NICTA’s performance modelling approach, and then explore a number of alternative deployment scenarios for an example SOA application — an emissions trading system. Our modelling approach provides insights into the capacity, resource requirements, and carbon emissions for different deployment options of this example trading system, including fixed servers, server virtualization, and computing on demand (cloud computing using Amazon EC2). We conclude with an overview of other potential problems and benefits of virtualization in an SOA context.
