Acme Air Sample and Benchmark

This application shows an implementation of a fictitious airline called "Acme Air". The application was built with the some key business requirements: the ability to scale to billions of web API calls per day, the need to develop and deploy the application in public clouds (as opposed to dedicated pre-allocated infrastructure), and the need to support multiple channels for user interaction (with mobile enablement first and browser/Web 2.0 second).

There are two implementations of the application tier. Each application implementation, supports multiple data tiers. They are:

  • Node.js
    • MongoDB
    • Cloudant
  • Java
    • WebSphere Liberty Profile to WebSphere eXtreme Scale
    • WebSphere Liberty Profile to Mongodb
