When we started working on the Mule High Availability (HA) solution we wanted to create the simplest and most complete ESB HA solution out there. With Mule 3.4 we have further enhanced the capabilities of the Mule HA solution. In this blog post we would like to share with you some details about some of the the following highlight HA features of Mule 3.4:
- Dynamic Scale Out
- Unicast Cluster Discovery
- Distributed Locking
- Concurrent File Processing
Mule 3.2 introduced out-of-the-box HA clustering and reliability patterns. Want learn how to get the most out of these new capabilities?
Mike Schilling, MuleSoft’s Lead Architect, shares his in depth knowledge about Mule 3.2’s HA clusters. If you are looking learn the leading tips and tricks for designing and managing clusters, as well as the applications running on the cluster, you should plan to attend MuleSoft’s upcoming webinar titled: High Availability for Integration Applications.
High availability. Fault-tolerance. Redundancy. Region failover. These are all major features that users look for when determining which cloud platform to use. They are not, however, easy problems to solve when building a cloud platform. Previously, we discussed the technology surrounding Mule iON’s architecture. Now, we will take a deeper dive into these components and how we carefully built Mule iON to resist outages or failures on Amazon EC2.
Building a highly available and fault tolerant cloud platform comes with its share of challenges. What happens when components fail? What happens when the cloud itself experiences downtime? How is it possible to ensure customer apps are always available and their log data is never lost?
These are some of the very questions we ask ourselves when working through the iON architecture. With so many choices, both open-source and commercial,
Mule 3.2 is right around the corner and it is shaping up as the best Mule release ever.
Some highlights include:
- High availability clustering for mission critical environments
- A business event analyzer to gain deep visibility into business events for root cause analysis and compliance
- Drools integration for business rules and complex event processing
