    Building a high performance and high availability Commerce site is not a trivial task, from having the correct capacity hardware to handle the workload to properly test the code change before deploying in production site. This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers several major areas that need to be considered when using WebSphere® Commerce and provide solutions for how to address them. Here are some of the topics discussed:

    How to build a Commerce site to deal with various kinds of unplanned outage. This include utilizing IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 6.0 and IBM DB2® High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) in the Commerce environment.

    How to build a Commerce site to deal with planned outages such as software fixes and operation updates. This includes use of the WebSphere Application Server Rollout Update feature and the use of Commerce Staging Server and Content Management.

    How to proactively monitor the Commerce site and prevent potential problems from occurring. Various tools are discussed, such as WebSphere Application Server build-in tools and Tivoli®'s Performance Viewer.

    How to utilize Dynacache to future enhance your Commerce site's performance. This includes additional Commerce command caching introduced in Commerce fix pack and e-spot caching.

    The methodology of doing performance and scalability testing on a Commerce site.
