Solace, GigaSpaces Team on Clusters

OTTAWA -- Solace Systems, the leader in hardware-based messaging middleware infrastructure and GigaSpaces Technologies, a leading provider of a new generation of application platforms for Java and .Net environments, announced today a joint "space bridging" solution that can coordinate interactions between applications across multiple clustered computing environments. Benefits include the ability to move data faster, superior application performance and better business continuity during disaster recovery scenarios. The solutions value is highest in industries where information is exceptionally time-sensitive, because database-centric solutions simply can’t handle the requisite rate of data transfers over wide area networks (WANs). Examples include financial services, telecommunications, cloud computing, logistics, government and online gaming.

Solace’s innovative hardware-based middleware augments GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform’s (XAP) native functionality with the ability to share information and resources between multiple XAP clusters across the WAN in real-time. This is generally called space bridging, and it lets enterprises and cloud computing providers deploy XAP clusters anywhere in the world with the confidence that the right information and resources will always be available to the right application at the right time.

"GigaSpaces is the gold standard of high-performance application servers," said Ralph Frankel, chief technology officer at Solace Systems. "Space bridging brings together two market-leading technologies to offer the most effective and efficient distributed data mirroring solution to address a wide range of pain points in enterprise and cloud computing today."
