GigaSpaces Technologies, a provider of in-memory computing and cloud orchestration technologies, and SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, has announced a strategic partnership to deliver a new solution that enables customers to obtain the full performance, scalability and cost benefits of flash storage.
GigaSpaces’ XAP MemoryXtend integrates SanDisk’s ZetaScale™ software, which optimizes applications to use flash technology, with GigaSpaces’ XAP in-memory computing platform. XAP MemoryXtend enables customers to store, process and analyze data near the speed of DRAM memory at the cost of flash storage. The solution will support application data growth to 100s of terabytes using in-memory data grid building blocks.
Our new XAP MemoryXtend technology makes it easy for developers to take full advantage of the benefits of flash storage in order to enhance application performance, as well as easily visualize and create new solutions and use cases for SSD-based data centers,” said Zeev Bikowsky, Chief Executive Officer, GigaSpaces Technologies. “Working together with SanDisk, GigaSpaces customers will now be able to utilize flash technology to apply in-memory computing and real-time analytics to a broader set of business applications without purchasing additional underlying hardware infrastructure—helping them lower TCO and increase ROI.”
XAP MemoryXtend provides both persistent storage and the opportunity to run much larger data sets for analytics. XAP MemoryXtend enables the creation of a hybrid architecture which is both RAM and flash storage-based, thus enabling data sets to extend beyond DRAM and into flash storage. With XAP MemoryXtend real-time analytics and in-memory computing customers will be able to process larger datasets at near DRAM speed at the cost of flash storage thereby delivering more Transactions Per Second (TPS) per dollar.
SanDisk is delighted to partner with a leading-edge real-time infrastructure provider like GigaSpaces to open up new use cases for flash storage in the enterprise data center,” said John Scaramuzzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “Together, using ZetaScale software and XAP MemoryXtend, we can enable users of in-memory computing and real-time analytics to enjoy a broader set of business applications without purchasing additional underlying hardware infrastructure.”
XAP MemoryXtend is agnostic to the underlying flash storage and supports PCIe, SAS, SATA, DIMMs or NVMe flash storage devices from any vendor, giving GigaSpaces customers maximum flexibility to choose the device that best fits their needs.
GigaSpaces’ XAP is an in-memory computing platform that leverages fast event processing and data access. XAP’s capabilities include low latency data processing, linear scalability for both data and processing, and high availability across servers and data centers. XAP allows users to boost an application’s performance without changing the underlying hardware to achieve better availability and uptime, and minimize license and hardware costs.
