Thoughts on a Service-Grid Architecture

Arthur Cole

There's an interesting article on SYS-CON this week detailing the benefits of implementing a service-grid architecture for deploying the next generation of SOA applications.


The ultimate goal is to provide an environment in which service applications are indistinguishable from standard apps using messaging-oriented middleware to bridge the gap between the application layer and data.


It's a long and detailed piece, full of figures and diagrams highlighting the five basic server elements of a service-grid architecture: the enterprise server, the peer servers, the MQ server, service orchestration tools and a series of built-in adapters for legacy equipment.


If done right, such an architecture will provide an enterprise-class backbone with advanced store-and-forward and dynamic control capabilities without sacrificing scalability or reliability.
