GigaSpaces Releases eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 8.0 – Ensures Technology Openness and Provides Continuous Scaling

Elastic Application Platform Delivers a Robust Environment for Cloud and Data Center Development

NEW YORK – January 31, 2011 – GigaSpaces Technologies, the leading provider of a new generation of virtualized application platforms, announces the launch of eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 8.0. Openness and continuous scaling are the foundations of GigaSpaces XAP 8.0, the industry’s only virtual application platform that enables end-to-end scalability with a single product. XAP 8.0 leverages the best of existing technologies and provides access to the technologies of tomorrow, all while ensuring applications can be updated and scale to need with zero downtime.

Enterprises face the challenge of having to combine legacy systems with newer technologies to meet their ever-increasing user demands and simultaneous data growth,” says Nati Shalom, GigaSpaces CTO. “8.0 enables organizations to easily transition their existing infrastructure into the more modern systems needed by today’s applications, such as distributed architectures, virtualized environments, and the cloud.

8.0’s “Same Data, Any API” capability promotes openness and interoperability, supporting all common interfaces for accessing data, such as Memcached, JPA, JMS, Document, and the highly efficient native object-oriented API. 8.0 ensures you can choose the best API for the use case at hand and operate on the same data regardless of the APIs you have chosen. This, in turn, significantly decreases the learning curve associated with adopting the XAP technology, as organizations can use their existing knowledge base to embrace the technologies of tomorrow.

Another major step forward with 8.0 is its support for continuous scaling. Mission-critical enterprise applications – such as in the financial services sector – and Web-focused applications, like e-commerce, online gaming, and social media require continuous changes to the application without bringing the system down. Continuous scaling allows for rolling upgrades, continuous deployment, quick introduction of complex features, and real-time changes to the applications data model, business logic, or even underlying platform with zero downtime. This guarantees that businesses can immediately react to market demands without worrying about costly downtime.

Operations and administration are also simplified with 8.0; XAP’s elastic middleware capabilities encompass the entire application stack, significantly simplifying the administration of applications across large clusters and providing proactive scaling and recovery from failure based on predefined SLA rules. The new simplified Alerting API enables real-time problem isolation and prevention by identifying problematic or erroneous situations and reporting them to the user. The new multi-site deployment support makes deploying and managing geographically distributed applications easier than ever.

Both traditional and web-focused enterprises are demanding solutions that enable them to leverage their existing assets, work with familiar technology, and speed time-to-value without increasing migration costs,” says Massimo Pezzini, Vice President and Gartner Fellow at Gartner. “These solutions also must work across operational environments – the data center, the cloud, and hybrid combinations of the two.”

GigaSpaces’ long-term vision has been to create a platform that optimizes data-center and cloud readiness, making the development, deployment and operations processes of the most demanding applications more efficient. With XAP 8.0, distributed, scalable and highly performing applications can be designed, modified, and implemented quickly while leveraging existing knowledge and technology resources.

Many Fortune 100 organizations and our other customers in financial services, e-commerce, and e-gaming are already enjoying XAP’s advantages in simplifying the inherent complexity of managing their IT,” says GigaSpaces CEO Zeev Bikowsky. “XAP simultaneously increases efficiency and reduces costs.”
