GigaSpaces, a Member of the Formula Group, Introduces a New Version of the GigaSpaces Platform, Which Delivers the Promise of Real Time Performance and Massive Scalability for the Company's Commercial Implementation of JavaSpaces.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 4, 2003
GigaSpaces Technologies Ltd., the developer of the GigaSpaces Platform -- the first commercial implementation of Sun's JavaSpaces technology, announced today the release of its latest version, the GigaSpaces Platform 2.5. The platform is a software infrastructure for developing real time, clustered and collaborative distributed applications. The GigaSpaces Platform behaves as a Distributed Shared Memory, facilitating customer's applications and services to communicate -- share and exchange information, in real time.
By using the GigaSpaces Platform, architects of both large enterprises and ISVs significantly reduce the complexity and investment of building distributed systems. Now, with version 2.5, GigaSpaces' customers can fulfill the company's new "Be Local-Sync Global" approach by allowing applications to share global information as if it was local with in-memory speed.
The GigaSpaces Platform 2.5 unveils GigaSpaces' recent efforts to boost performance and scalability, to provide optimal Persistent Space support over IBM DB2, Cache, and Point Base, to better support XML and C++, and to significantly reduce P2P Cluster configuration efforts by using the new cluster wizard. These new features, together with the already existing Security, Clustering, Web Services, and JDBC support, provide a powerful and dynamic infrastructure for next generation applications and services.
"GigaSpaces performance improvements were achieved by smart usage of a serialization mechanism, which leads to a decrease in network traffic, and in fewer internal operations performed by product's kernel," said Yura Kupitman, GigaSpaces V.P. R&D. "GigaSpaces unsurpassed performance, achieved by using the 2.5 version in a P2P Cluster configuration and via an Embedded Space, which is a Space incorporated entirely into the application runtime environment, and both are running on the same JVM."
"To address the rising demand in systems scalability, mostly in the mobile communication industry, and to address rising needs in Blades technology, GigaSpaces Platform 2.5 introduces a new communication layer that is based on JDK 1.4.x NIO mechanism," says Nati Shalom, GigaSpaces CTO. "It allows the system to scale easily up to many thousands of clients without degrading performance, compared to other available communication layers such as RMI."
GigaSpaces Platform 2.5 Enterprise Edition is available for 30 days evaluation at: http://www.gigaspaces.com/downloads.htm
