GigaSpaces announced the availability
of GigaSpaces Version 5.2. GigaSpaces 5.2 is an implementation of
Space-based Architecture, a new model enabling end-to-end scalability
for low-latency, high-throughput applications, designed to remove
performance barriers inherent in traditional middleware technologies.
"With GigaSpaces 5.2, we are delivering infrastructure software that allows unlimited scalability while making application development and maintenance simpler and faster than ever," said Nati Shalom, CTO, GigaSpaces. "Because GigaSpaces eliminates the 'tyranny of tiers' that traditional middleware imposes on applications, developers can write highly-distributed, scalable, applications without impacting performance or throughput. GigaSpaces is unique in transferring the burden of application performance and scalability from developers to the Grid infrastructure."
Enhancements to GigaSpaces Version 5.2:
- Write distributed applications as if interacting with a single server, while GigaSpaces handles the dynamic distribution, coordination and synchronization of the messaging, processing and data across the entire network; and,
- Deploy applications and services through a single deployment operation, achieving an SLA-driven solution for the entire application stack. This includes continuous availability, on-demand scalability and self-healing.
- POJO Oriented Services. Developers can develop distributed services and deploy them throughout the network writing simple POJOs.
- Running the business logic where the data is. Providing common infrastructure for real-time analytics and low latency transactional applications.
- POJO driven In-Memory Data Grid. GigaSpaces 5.2's end-to-end POJO support enables developers to continue writing their POJOs and, via a declarative approach, map the existing data model to an optimized data structure. This allows for efficient and granular query support and data distribution, in a similar fashion to models like Hibernate and JPA. In addition, using a built-in Hibernate support, developers can continue to leverage their existing mapping to relational databases, while gaining the performance benefit of In-Memory Data Grids
GigaSpaces Version 5.2 will be available by year end. At this time, fully functional 30-day trials of the Enterprise Edition will be available at the company's web site, http://www.gigaspaces.com. The Caching Edition will also be available for trial. Developers interested in this technology or who are using the Spring framework and wish to see the integration with GigaSpaces may download GigaSpaces Community Edition 5.2. Community Edition enables users to discover GigaSpaces' capabilities on a single node.
