Papyrus Application Scalability

In scalability, solution, system management on July 7, 2009 at 4:08 am

There are now over 200 installations of the Papyrus Platform. Half of those serve hundreds to thousands of users. The others manage high-volume production systems. Most installations handle between 10,000 and 100,000 inbound or outbound document tasks per day in either straight-through processing or user-interactive mode. All these installations continue to grow and thus application scalability is becoming a common theme. Adding new applications is so easy that users tend to forget that possibly more HW resources are necessary to handle those processing needs. We propose a pro-active monitoring approach using our integrated monitoring and reporting facilities.

The Papyrus Platform offers unlimited scalability but applications have to be properly defined taking such scalability into account or they have to be accordingly updated as the application grows. Often restricted networks or other limited resources require tuning measures to ensure acceptable user response times.
