BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 30 -- GemStone
Systems, the leading provider of distributed data management and
virtualization solutions, today announced GemFire Enterprise 5.1, a
core component of its high-performance, enterprise data fabric (EDF).
The new GemFire Enterprise 5.1 release serves as a distributed
operational data management infrastructure that sits between clustered
application processes and back-end data sources to provide very
low-latency, predictable, high-throughput data sharing and event
distribution. By managing data in-memory, GemFire Enterprise 5.1
enables extremely high-speed data sharing that turns a network of
machines into a single, logical data management unit or a data fabric.
GemFire Enterprise 5.1 introduces an advanced set of technical features to deliver powerful, end-to-end scalability and performance improvements. By augmenting native C++/C# caching capabilities, GemFire Enterprise 5.1 provides highly available asynchronous cache update notifications to ensure clients are protected against server failures.
“As enterprises seek to move from a typical disaster recovery scenario to a resilient architecture, companies need a dynamic distributed cache to support next-generation enterprise utilities, especially for compute-intensive, fault-tolerant applications,” said Chris Wolf, senior analyst with Burton Group.
“There are a large number of variables in a distributed system which significantly increase the possibility of an error, such as loss of data consistency, missed event notifications, or failure conditions arising from applications, resource limitations or machine failures,” said Jags Ramnarayan, chief architect at GemStone Systems. “With this release, GemFire Enterprise 5.1 minimizes the application risk under such conditions and specifies any level of redundancy when partitioning the data across the cluster. GemFire Enterprise 5.1 will control how the concurrent load is handled on any server by a configurable set of workers and be assured that events enqueued for delivery to clients can survive server failures.”
The combination of distributed data caching with reliable message delivery provides customers with the tools to build next generation high-performance, real-time applications. For grid users, GemFire Enterprise 5.1 offers scalability and the predictability that it becomes near linear when additional resources become available to the data fabric.
“As more and more organizations turn to distributed data grids to improve application performance, minimize latency and reduce operating expenses, they must address the growing reliability and scalability challenges,” continues Ramnarayan. “GemFire Enterprise 5.1 will allow users to leverage native client cache enhancements, configure more than one level of redundancy and optimize for high concurrency to guarantee data availability and integrity. This release reinforces our commitment to delivering reliable solutions to improve and simplify our client’s most critical IT processes and deliver best-in-class scalability for distributed data grids with sub millisecond latency.”
New features of GemFire Enterprise 5.1 include:
