Objective 1.5: Design for Optimal Processing
Applications often have intense processing requirements. For large organizations, an application might need to be accessed by tens of thousands of users simultaneously. Processing these requests efficiently requires careful application design. Depending on the processing required for each request, you might need to deploy a single, powerful server, or you might need to deploy hundreds of servers.
This objective discusses planning long-running processes, scaling applications up and out, and different forms of messaging that you can use to optimize processing.
