The complete guide to planning and building E-business sites! Ensure functionality through performance modeling and capacity planning methods -- correctly analyze and project site needs and performance! Keep your site from crashing, losing money and customer confidence: ensure scalability and handle peak demands. Foreword by Jim Gray: Microsoft Research and 1998 ACM Turing Award Recipient. In 1999, slow E-commerce sites cost their owners $44 billion in lost revenue -- and site failures have embarrassed companies from Britannica to eBay, Victoria's Secret to Charles Schwab. In Scaling for e-Business, two of the world's leading Web performance experts present powerful techniques for characterizing, predicting, anticipating, and addressing every aspect of E-commerce site performance. Scaling for e-Business demonstrates how to characterize E-commerce workloads more accurately than any book published yet. It clearly demonstrates techniques for analyzing the performance of authentication and payment services; modeling contention for software servers; modeling and planning for communications infrastructure; and most importantly, forecasting and addressing peak demand. Finally, the Web/E-Commerce developer will discover how to evaluate and project the long-term impact of changes in his/her site visitor profile -- even the growth of non-PC devices and traffic from "intelligent agents" such as comparative shopping bots. Daniel A. Menascé is Professor of Computer Science at George Mason University, and a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA. Virgilio A.F. Almeida Professor of Computer Science at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Vanderbilt University, and formerly held a visiting research position at Xerox PARC. Their research interests include performance modeling and capacity planning for large-scale Web and e-commerce systems.
For senior/graduate-level courses in Electronic Commerce. Using a quantitative and engineering approach to understand and analyze e-commerce systems and applications, this text discusses technologies from a performance and scalability viewpoint. It presents models and methods for workload analysis and characterization of e-commerce sites
