Pentaho and JBoss: Best Practices for Large Scale Information Delivery

James (Pentaho's Chief Geek) is back from JBoss World in Vegas, and the folks at JBoss have been kind enough to publish the slides from his standing-room-only presentation, "Scaling Up: Using JBoss Clustering for Large Scale Information Delivery".

The description from the abstract:

"Business Intelligence applications are often deployed to tens of thousands of users, creating extreme requirements for performance, scalability, and reliability. Delivering this kind of scalability requires a solid understanding of JBoss clustering capabilities, and some critical design and architecture decisions to avoid bottlenecks, ensure redundancy, and maximize scalability on the JBoss platform."

Download James' presentation slides from JBoss World 2006 for the overview:
