GemStone Releases GemFire Enterprise 4.0
GemStone Systems announced the release of GemFire Enterprise 4.0, a
software product that provides an enterprise data fabric for
organizations that want to deploy a universal, high-performance data
infrastructure for distributed applications. The new offering includes
a comprehensive transactions management framework, which ensures data
consistency, data reliability and communication amongst data sources.
It also includes a sophisticated, standards-based querying feature that
enables applications to rapidly slice and dice information stored in
GemFire Enterprise solves data problems organizations face as new
infrastructures, such as service-oriented architectures and grid
computing, are deployed. As data simultaneously increases in
volumes and becomes more distributed, firms are experiencing data
overload, resulting in latency and a minimized view of data that often
resides within multiple systems of varying data types.
