New York, NY – September 21, 2010 – GigaSpaces Technologies continues to attract independent software vendors (ISVs), such as Pagosonline.net S.A., a leading financial services Software-as-a-Service provider in Bogota, Colombia. Pagosonline recently integrated GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 7.1.1 into its web-based payment processing and aggregation platform.
XAP is an enterprise-grade, end-to-end in-memory application server for deploying and dynamically scaling distributed applications. Software vendors and organizations can now more quickly and cost-effectively develop, manage, and scale their business-critical Java and .NET applications, whether they are being used within the data center or as web- or cloud-based SaaS offerings.
“As a growing company, we project that our processing needs over the next five years will grow to at least five times current transaction rates,” says José Fernando Vélez, General Manager of Pagosonline. “We chose XAP as the most cost-effective solution to ensure our infrastructure costs won’t increase accordingly.”
XAP allows Pagosonline to linearly and dynamically scale its system without any diminishing returns. Meanwhile, XAP’s concurrent transaction management and multi-tenancy features maximize Pagosonline’s use of its existing hardware infrastructure.
“Pagosonline evaluated XAP through our free trial program,” says Amnon Raviv, head of ISV sales at GigaSpaces. “They were quickly up and running, requiring only minimal support from GigaSpaces. We’ve noticed this pattern recurring with our customers, as they utilize XAP’s open, rich APIs and support for standard frameworks.”
By embedding XAP in its payments service platform, Pagosonline will be able to leverage XAP’s fully transactional, best-in-class, in-memory data grid, its parallel processing engine, and a reliable, high-performance messaging infrastructure. This ensures that the Pagosonline development team can focus on improved functionality without worrying about the underlying infrastructure, speeding time to market. In the future, if Pagosonline decides its needs are better served with part of the application infrastructure on the cloud, thanks to XAP, it can transition from the data center to the cloud without a single code change.
“Thanks to the flexibility of GigaSpaces technology, ISVs benefit from the same features and cost-efficiencies our large data-center-focused customers have long enjoyed,” says John Giubileo, GigaSpaces Executive Vice President and General Manager. “GigaSpaces technology and consultancy services provide software vendors with a long-term solution that supports both their data center and cloud-based application offerings. With XAP ISVs can take their existing applications and offer them as a service online with minimal to zero code change,” he added.
