Authors: Ravi Gopalakrishnan, Keith Smith, Christopher Vignola


IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment V8.5 (referred to as Network Deployment from this point on) improves application server resiliency and delivers enterprise quality service for batch workloads. These capabilities lower total cost of ownership and result in higher availability and agility of the application server environment. This IBM Redpaper™ publication describes several implementation scenarios that Network Deployment clients can review to quickly illustrate the value of these enhanced resiliency and batch capabilities.
