GigaSpaces XAP 12.1 Combines the Power of In-memory Computing with Agile Native Cloud Deployments and Hybrid Data Storage

GigaSpaces, a provider of in-memory computing (IMC) technologies, announced the availability of XAP 12.1, an update to the company’s flagship IMC data grid.  The new version of XAP combines IMC with the agility of cloud-native deployments and the flexibility of hybrid data storage to offer a stable, highly available, extreme performance environment for data and analytics applications.

For 15 years, XAP has powered many of the biggest transaction processing and real-time analytics applications in the world, for customers in markets like financial institutions, travel, logistics and retail,” said Ali Hodroj, VP of Products and Strategy for GigaSpaces.  “XAP 12.1 builds on this track record, while offering increased agility for large organizations that wish to deploy and utilize IMC for a wider variety of needs.”

Key Benefits of XAP 12.1 include:

  • Unstructured Data Processing and Analytics- With the launch of XAP 12.1, GigaSpaces has co-located data and search capabilities within its data grid. The result allows companies to run search queries on unstructured data, such as information gathered from social media, and make those queries actionable in the moment, based on established criteria. For example, companies can react to customer feedback in real-time, improving their customer-360 and hyper-personalization initiatives for the omnichannel digital enterprise.
  • Frictionless Deployment- XAP 12.1 gives developers a simplified DevOps pipeline, connecting its IMC data grid with continuous deployment through an orchestration layer. Whether the deployment environment is on-premise, cloud or edge, XAP developers can now easily on-board new microservices with a couple of REST API calls. This has also created the ability to scale up and scale out without any changes to tooling and architecture.
  • Fast Data Recovery- A traditional barrier to IMC adoption has been consistent availability of RAM. In cases of a planned or unplanned restart, all of the data being analyzed would need to be reloaded. XAP 12.1 builds on the redundancy of previous iterations to ensure that any data being used at the moment of downtime is backed up, while also incorporating a new approach to getting all the data back online as fast as possible to ensure business continuity.
