About:
"Dr Mark Little - VP of Engineering

Mark Little leads the technical direction, research, and development for Red Hat JBoss Middleware. Prior to taking over this role in 2008, Mark served as the SOA technical development manager and director of standards. Additionally, Mark was a chief architect, and co-founder at Arjuna Technologies, a spin-off from HP, where he was Distinguished Engineer. He has worked in the area of reliable distributed systems since the mid-80s with a PhD in fault-tolerant distributed systems, replication, and transactions. Mark is also a professor at Newcastle University and Lyon University.”

Abstract:
“Middleware has played a key role in dependable enterprise applications over the last 5 decades. Key concepts of reliable distributed computing developed during the eighties and nineties (e.g., transactions, replication) influenced standards based middleware such as Java EE. However, the way enterprises are using networked computing for businesses is undergoing rapid changes as new ways of constructing distributed execution environments from varieties of resources, ranging from computational, storage, network to application level services, provided by globally distributed service providers are emerging. There will be strong emphasis on customisation of the dependability support within the middleware to address the individual needs of end-users. In light of these developments Red Hat middleware teams have been working with a number of global universities on long term research efforts. In this presentation, we shall discuss the issues, examine what research we are already doing, and suggest areas of future research.”
