Sorry again guys,
I searched the internet a lot, but didn't find anything clear enough.
I am starting to think WebLogic has some limitations about scaling out in the cloud.
But can anyone help us on that? Please.
Weblogic provides scalability. In future if you feel the load is more you can create another managed server and thus server your purpose.
Thanks & Regards,
Maybe I am missing something here, but what I would like to understand is whether WebLogic can scale out automatically in the Cloud or not. How can WebLogic cope with a slashdot effect where you cannot predict that scalability will be much higher for just a few hours?
That's where real cloud solutions, like AWS (and now also Google Compute Engine) can be handy. I know other solutions, which are designed to be "Shared nothing", can spin out new instances in a matter of second or minutes. How WebLogic fits in this scenario?
Does WLS 12c change that? Or is it still hard (or impossible) to start/stop new instances automatically as the load increases/decreases? I am considering AWS EC2 instances or any modern cloud compute, like GCE as the "servers".
Maybe WLS 12c supports that out-of-the-box. If it does we would have to use Sticky Session, right? As WLS stores the user's session in the application layer (I think).
