Software and Application Scalability

With Java scalable applications development increased load won’t be an obstacle anymore

Scalability means a capability of an application to maintain good performance in the conditions of increased load. In other words, if an app withstands the increased user base without any issues, it is considered to scale well.

There are two types of scaling:

  • Vertical scaling, or scaling up – adding more resources (in particular, hardware resources) to a node (or, simply, to a computer machine);
  • Horizontal scaling, or scaling out – adding more nodes to a project (for example, adding more computer machines to a system).

As one of the dominant programming technologies today, Java gives software companies an opportunity to provide scalable development services. Being a multithreaded language, Java perfectly meets the requirement of architecture scalability to ensure task parallelization.

In addition, there are Java web frameworks aimed to make Java scalable solutions development easier. Spring and Spark frameworks are among them.

Scalability of the system can be planned on the architecture stage. This way, once a project becomes more popular, growing number of user queries won't be a surprise for its owner. Alternatively, it is possible to rescale the application once the need comes and the load increases. However, programmers from almost any scalable app development company would say that the first option is preferable since the second one can be too labor-intensive and, hence, expensive. Thus, if there is a possibility to take care about a growth in load beforehand, this would be much more cost-effective.

ISS Art team knows how to build Scalable Java application solutions. One of them is a web based SaaS solution to manage construction sites. Currently this projects handles 21’755’588 weekly queries (more than 100 of them are performed simultaneously) thanks to our scalability Java services.

Another example of Java scalability solutions delivered by our company is a prognostic tool to prevent industrial equipment malfunctions. To forecast these malfunctions, the application uses specific mathematical algorithms. To ensure that the system will maintain its good performance with high load, we needed to design the architecture accordingly. This was achieved successfully:

  • today the application forecast enables up to 25,000 components;
  • the server side analyses up to 750 000 parameters.

We look forward for new exciting projects, and we are happy to offer our scaling Java application services. Our guys with 12+ years of experience in Java will design the architecture that will be ready for growing load. Please contact us to learn more.
