GigaSpaces Releases Preview Version Of eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 7.1
SAN JOSE, CALIF. - January 26, 2010 - GigaSpaces Technologies, a leading provider of application middleware platforms for Java and .NET environments, announces the preview launch of eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) 7.1, an enterprise-grade application server for deploying and scaling distributed applications.
"With 7.1, enterprises benefit from a distributed environment that allows dynamic scaling and multiple applications to share the same resources, improving IT efficiency and cost savings," says Guy Korland, head of GigaSpaces R&D. "On a daily basis, though, it is the developers and administrators who use XAP, so they will most benefit from the improved usability and enhanced monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities."
XAP is a "build once, run anywhere" middleware platform, providing functions for the entire application stack within a single, end-to-end solution. It can be used within public and private clouds, data centers, and virtualized environments, simultaneously or independently, without a single code change.
Version 7.1 will include a number of major themes, such as elastic data grid capabilities, enhanced querying support, performance optimization of transactional operations, and better troubleshooting capabilities. General availability is expected at the end of Q1 2010.
XAP 7.1 features include:
* Elastic data grid support, which enables users to instantiate a data grid with a single API call and supports multi-tenant environments and dynamic scaling of the data grid capacity in both internal data centers and cloud environments.
