GigaSpaces Technologies, a virtualized application platforms provider, is now offering eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 8.0. According to GigaSpaces, it is the industry’s only virtual application platform that enables end-to-end scalability with a single product.
8.0’s “Same Data, Any API” capability supports all common interfaces for accessing data, such as Memcached, JPA, JMS, Document, and the native object-oriented API. 8.0 ensures operation of data regardless of API choice.
8.0 is offering support for continuous scaling. Mission-critical enterprise applications 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, complex features, and real-time changes to the applications data model, business logic, or underlying platform with zero downtime.
XAP’s elastic middleware capabilities encompass the entire application stack, simplifying the administration of applications across large clusters and providing proactive scaling and recovery from failure based on predefined SLA rules. The Alerting API enables real-time problem isolation and prevention by identifying problematic or erroneous situations and reporting them to the user.
