Jan 12, 2011 : GigaSpaces Partners with CloudTran


📅 - CloudTran integrates its transaction management middleware with GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform.

GigaSpaces Technologies, a provider of application platforms for Java and .Net environments, yesterday announced that CloudTran, a cloud management provider, has integrated its transaction management middleware with GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform. It adds that the move comes on the heel of its partnership with Citrix to provide an open and elastic cloud-enabled platform to meet organizations' application development, deployment and scalability needs. The company claims that the partnership will allow the companies to offer a Java-based solution that runs large database infrastructures in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

It explains that scalable applications require new approaches to transactional management and application architecture. GigaSpaces XAP and CloudTran provide solutions to these issues so application developers can build rapid, large-scale applications in less time and with lower risk. GigaSpaces XAP is an end-to-end virtualized application platform featuring an in-memory data grid that can manage terabytes of data. XAP and CloudTran enable highly responsive transaction processing over the largest distributed and cloud computing environments, significantly improving the performance, availability, reliability and cost-efficiency of large scale transaction processing.

The company says that its infrastructure ensures high-speed processing with millisecond latency, while providing automatic failover. The combined XAP-CloudTran infrastructure gives IT organizations the tools and infrastructure components needed to build and deploy database-focused enterprise applications in the cloud by providing a simple Java view of data, transactions and automatic distribution within public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid combinations.

It further explains that GigaSpaces scales at the in-memory data level, while CloudTran provides scalability at the persistent data level by logically organizing data stored across multiple computing nodes. By using XAP as the infrastructure, CloudTran can process thousands of transactions each second, making it suitable for a broad range of online transaction processing solutions. CloudTran provides a data modeling tool and a transaction manager that implements ACID transactions, and integrates the GigaSpaces in-memory grid and persistent data stores. Additionally, CloudTran provides hot failover recovery, which rebuilds data within the GigaSpaces' grid if a node fails.

"We were seeking a platform that would allow us to offer extreme scalability, reliability, and high-speed processing," said Tom Henn, President and CEO of CloudTran. "GigaSpaces XAP provides the back-end that allows our clients to build highly reliable database management systems while maintaining complete data integrity."
