GigaSpaces Releases Its Elastic Application Platform as a CA AppLogic Appliance

NEW YORK, Nov. 9 — GigaSpaces Technologies, a pioneer of next generation application platforms for mission-critical applications, today announced the GigaSpaces Application Platform appliance, a new solution for deploying and scaling complex, mission-critical enterprise applications on CA AppLogic clouds. GigaSpaces developed the XAP software appliance as part of its active involvement as a partner in the Cloud Commons ecosystem, sponsored by CA Technologies.

Enterprises and cloud service providers can use GigaSpaces XAP for private cloud, hybrid cloud and public clouds.

"Organizations can create a private cloud environment using the CA AppLogic cloud platform, and then leverage GigaSpaces' run-time to on-board their mission critical applications," said Brian Burba, Cloud Ecosystem Solution Manager at CA Technologies. "We expect partners like GigaSpaces to continue to find new avenues and opportunities for their services and solutions through our growing Cloud Commons network."

GigaSpaces' new CA AppLogic appliance provides an enterprise grade stack of cloud-enabled services, such as elastic caching, elastic map/reduce, CloudWatch, SimpleDB and SQS, which can be used by any application, including those running outside the CA AppLogic environment.

Developers can also move applications from their development environment into the CA AppLogic environment smoothly, reducing the time it takes to roll-out new features and to update existing applications.

In addition, the GigaSpaces multi-site replication capabilities enable applications to span multiple CA AppLogic clouds and keep their state continuously synchronized. This enables businesses to avoid network latency by keeping the application and its data close to the user data center, disaster recovery between sites and effective cloud bursting to maximize the resource utilization among the CA AppLogic sites.

GigaSpaces will be demonstrating its new XAP appliance at CA World 2011, taking place November 13-16, 2011, in Las Vegas.

"Organizations have been concerned about moving their distributed, mission-critical apps to the cloud because of their unique challenges, including concerns about security, guaranteed availability and ensured performance levels," said Adi Paz, EVP Marketing and Business Development at GigaSpaces. "Our platform ensures performance and latency levels through our proven in-memory middleware stack, which comes with tight, enterprise-grade security already in use by mission-critical apps at leading enterprises. The entire middleware stack is engineered with built-in redundancy, designed to survive even complete data center failure without any downtime."

The GigaSpaces application platform provides the following unique values:

  • Single platform. Couples the market-leading in-memory data grid with a full elastic application container, handling data, business logic and messaging for complete application scalability. The result is extreme application performance, low latency and fine-grained multi-tenancy.
  • True enterprise-grade production environment: Continuous availability and failover, elastic scaling across the stack and automating the application deployment lifecycle.
  • Control & visibility: Built-in application- and cluster-aware monitoring.
  • Any App: Java, C++ and .Net applications are easily deployed to the CA AppLogic grid or private cloud.

"GigaSpaces has over ten years of experience in developing enterprise-grade run-time platforms for distributed, mission-critical applications. We look forward to bringing these same benefits to CA AppLogic customers," said Amnon Raviv, Head of ISV and OEM Sales at GigaSpaces.
