LONDON -- At its customer conference in London, GigaSpaces Technologies today announced the latest release and new name of its Space-Based Architecture software platform. GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) represents version 6.0 of its infrastructure software suite. The new release provides a complete middleware platform for managing data, messaging and business logic for applications that require high performance and the ability to scale horizontally across hundreds of machines.

Enterprises across industries are demanding scalable applications for extreme transaction processing (XTP), real-time analytics and high-performance SOA. The need for high performance, highly scalable applications has never been greater in industries such as financial services, telecommunications, government and Web 2.0. However, this rapidly growing class of applications can no longer be supported by traditional approaches. GigaSpaces XAP provides middleware for building applications with limitless scalability and low-latency performance. It simply and easily transforms new and existing applications into scalable services with increased performance. With GigaSpaces XAP, the ability to use, develop, deploy, install and change applications has never been easier.

The challenges of building scalable, high-performance applications are especially great when dealing with stateful applications, such as those used for transaction processing or with frequent access to data,” said Nati Shalom, founder and CTO, GigaSpaces. “Traditional approaches to this problem – using multiple tiers of products such as databases, application servers and messaging middleware – just don’t cut it. GigaSpaces XAP 6.0 solves these issues, and does so with a simple, standard programming model familiar to tens of thousands of software developers.”
