New York, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
GigaSpaces announces the release of XAP version 9.1, which provides a new feature set designed to boost real-time handling of streaming events, enabling organizations to gain meaningful insights at the pace of business, build cloud-sourcing applications, and without compromising on factors such as scalability, data consistency, and high availability.
“In a business environment with growing demand for real-time insights on streams of data that are both vast and extremely fast, enterprises need a high-performance, scalable, and reliable platform that provides all their real-time processing needs,” says Uri Cohen, Vice President of Product Management at GigaSpaces. “XAP 9.1 adds new capabilities to the fast and optimized data processing, which XAP 9 introduced earlier this year.”
New features included in XAP 9.1 support the following themes:
- Streaming Big Data Processing *
If XAP 9.0, released in May of this year, was geared specifically to meet the needs of Big Data, then XAP 9.1 is a direct extension of that undertaking. Focusing on the Velocity aspect of the “3 Vs” of Big Data (Volume, Variety, and Velocity), XAP 9.1 includes in-place updates and optimized partial replication provide faster data updates; XAP has built-in the capability to create or update optimized counters, and a new custom class-based eviction policy provides increased control of data processing.
- Manageability & Visibility *
XAP 9.1 represents another step in GigaSpaces´ continuous efforts to create management tools that work as smoothly as possible and provide complete visibility of enterprises´ distributed applications and data. XAP 9.1 adds new GUI capabilities with class-loading management, fine-grained client activity monitoring, and event tracing.
- Performance & Robustness *
“Performance and robustness have always been cornerstones of the XAP platform, and we are in a constant race to outperform ourselves,” says Cohen. “XAP 9.1 adds dynamic lookup service to XAP´s service grid as well as several improvements to performance and stability.” These improvements include optimized automatic client reconnection, as well as enhanced interoperability write between java and .NET using schema-less mode.
