Scaleup v. Scaleout    Chair Jim Gray

Don Haderle, IBM Santa Teresa Laboratory, will talk about the revenge of the mainframe, server consolidation,  and the fact that the key issues today are Manageability, Availability and Scalability. He will draw from his first-hand experience with IBM's largest customers. Don Haderle
Robert Barnes, Microsoft, will argue that scaleout is the only way to build super-servers. His premise is that the hardware is here, but the software is not. He continues by talking about the promises  that the scaleout community is making to attack the Manageability, Availability and Scalability. Robert Barnes: Scale Out
James Hamilton argues that we must tolerate faults, and Bill Laing argues that performance benchmarks (like TPC) are irrelevant. James Hamilton: Software testing doesn’t scale
Bill Laing: Amen Anon Et. Al. : are TP benchmarks still relevant?

Chair Pat O'Neil

This session has four twenty-minute talks. Atul Adya will speak on a new characterization of transactional isolation levels that spans locking and multi-version concurrency, to make a natural basis for a standard. Betty Salzberg will explain the help needed by academic researchers from industry practitioners to formulate useful research directions. Joseph Hellerstein will speak about the storage manager of the Berkeley "Telegraph" system, that federates databases, file systems and the World Wide Web. Finally, Wayne Duquaine will anchor the session with: "Why HTML is a Strategic Dead End for Business Transactions and E-Commerce".

10:30 12:00 Debate: Queuing Obsolete?
Chairs Charles Brett

In this session all star teams will argue that message queuing systems have a great deal of value and help drive the integration of mission-critical applications. On the con side Keith will present his thoughts that most messaging architectures were developed before the Internet and therefore the Web provides ubiquitous connectivity, ubiquitous resource access (even to legacy applications), and a standard naming scheme. It should get hot and heavy!
