GigaSpaces and CloudTran Partner to Bring Data Integrity to the Cloud

New York & Pleasanton, California, January 11, 2011 – GigaSpaces Technologies, a leading provider of a new generation of virtualized application platforms delivering end-to-end scalability, announces that CloudTran has integrated its transaction management middleware with GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP). The end result is a Java-based solution that runs large database infrastructures in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

Scalable applications require new approaches to transactional management and application architecture. GigaSpaces XAP and CloudTran provide solutions to these issues so application developers can build top-speed, large-scale applications in less time and with lower risk.

“We were seeking a platform that would allow us to offer extreme scalability, reliability, and high-speed processing,” says Tom Henn, President and CEO of CloudTran. “GigaSpaces XAP provides the back-end that allows our clients to build highly reliable database management systems while maintaining complete data integrity.”

GigaSpaces XAP is an end-to-end virtualized application platform featuring an in-memory data grid that can manage terabytes of data. Its infrastructure ensures high-speed processing with millisecond latency, while providing automatic failover.

XAP and CloudTran enable highly responsive transaction processing over the largest distributed and cloud computing environments, providing for significant improvements in performance, availability, reliability and cost-efficiency of very large scale transaction  processing.

The combined XAP-CloudTran infrastructure gives IT organizations the tools and infrastructure components required to build and deploy database-focused enterprise applications in the cloud by providing a simple Java view of data, transactions and automatic distribution within public clouds,  private clouds, and hybrid combinations.

Scalability is key to transaction processing; GigaSpaces dynamically and linearly scales at the in-memory data level, while CloudTran provides scalability at the persistent data level by logically organizing data stored across multiple computing nodes. By using XAP as the infrastructure, CloudTran can process thousands of transactions each second, making it suitable for a broad range of online transaction processing solutions, such as payment processing, order entry, and inventory tracking.

CloudTran provides a data modeling tool and a transaction manager that implements ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) transactions, and integrates the Gigaspaces in-memory grid and persistent data stores. CloudTran also provides hot failover recovery, which rebuilds data within the Gigaspaces’ grid if a node fails.

“Enterprises need platforms that enable today’s data-focused applications in the cloud,” says Adi Paz, GigaSpaces Executive Vice President for Marketing and Business Development. “With XAP and CloudTran, CIOs and development teams have the tools necessary to deliver scalable, database-intensive applications within any environment.”
