Blowing the lid off of In-Memory Computing

XAP 10 has many great features and we want to share them with you! Here’s a blog post that discusses our Off Heap Flash Storage Add-On – XAP MemoryXtend, Global HTTP Session Sharing, Query Aggregations, Custom Change APIs and so much more!

 And just in case you’re not in the mood for reading, you can watch one of our great webcasts about each individual feature. Want an example? Here’s a webcast that discusses our Initial Load feature that allows the initial load to be configured on a class-by-class basis to only retrieve data relevant for the local partition. Watch it now!


The Evolution of IMC

As the Big Data trend grows in the world of enterprise technology, In-Memory Computing has made a significant dent in the enterprise software market. In fact, in-memory technology is a must for corporations that need to meet their organization’s specific objectives and priorities in terms of combining data from multiple systems and meeting real-time needs. Here’s an interesting article published by Magic Software that discusses the technology evolution of In-Memory Computing:

Join us at a NYC Meetup about Scaling E-Commerce with In-Memory Computing

Ali Hodroj, Director of Solution Architecture and Technology Evangelist at GigaSpaces,will be discussing how in-memory computing technologies along with ecommerce architecture patterns can provide internet-scale performance and scalability.

With coupons scattered across the internet, increased overall demand on Cyber Monday/Black Friday, and massive growth in mobile-only shoppers, eCommerce websites have to automatically adapt and scale to increasing traffic. On days like Cyber Monday, sudden, intensive loads create a situation where retailers’ traditional central database systems are burdened by large simultaneous lock requests often to the point of system unavailability.

This is a meetup you just can’t miss!

How to Add Real Distributed Transactions to MongoDB – Ron Zavner

From time to time, I like to visit NoSQL conferences and talk to people from the community to see how they solve their problems. I guess I find it more neutral to do this sometimes, as opposed to speaking to our customers, as they might be biasedJ. In any case, it seems that the hype
