J.D. Edwards To Add Clustering To ERP Package

J.D. Edwards said today that the next version of its flagship OneWorld enterprise applications package will have clustering features that will make the system more scalable and produce higher uptime.

The ERP vendor will add the clustering capabilities to the December release of OneWorld. The clustering features, and the scalability they bring, will help the vendor push into the high end of its midmarket customer range. "It's an important comfort factor for companies that are looking to scale up in the near term," says Joshua Greenbaum, a principal with Enterprise Applications Consulting Inc. "It enhances [J.D. Edwards'] overall competitive position.

Clustering will let users add additional servers to handle increasingly heavy loads. The servers will also protect from data loss; when a server goes down, the J.D. Edwards applications will fail over to another server node. The OneWorld clustering will allow data sharing across distributed servers, load balancing, more intense data transactions, and a common database infrastructure, the company says.

The clustering features will work on Windows NT, through Microsoft Clustering Services, and HP-UX, using Service Guard. An AS/400 enhancement lets users separate OneWorld into an application server and a database server on separate AS/400 machines. J.D. Edwards will also add clustering support for the AIX operating system in a later release of OneWorld.
