GigaSpaces and SanDisk Partner to Deliver Greater Scalability and Performance to Real-Time Analytics and In-Memory Computing Applications
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, a provider of in-memory computing and cloud
orchestration technologies, and SanDisk
Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK),
a global leader in flash storage solutions, today announced�a strategic
partnership to deliver a new solution that enables customers to obtain
the full performance, scalability and cost benefits of flash storage.
GigaSpaces' (News - Alert) XAP
MemoryXtend integrates SanDisk's
ZetaScale™ software, which optimizes applications to use flash
technology, with GigaSpaces' XAP in-memory computing platform. XAP
MemoryXtend enables customers to store, process and analyze data near
the speed of DRAM memory at the cost of flash storage. The solution will
support application data growth to 100s of terabytes using in-memory
data grid building blocks.
"Our new XAP MemoryXtend technology makes it easy for developers to take
full advantage of the benefits of flash storage in order to enhance
application performance, as well as easily visualize and create new
solutions and use cases for SSD-based data centers," said Zeev Bikowsky,
Chief Executive Officer, GigaSpaces Technologies. "Working together with
SanDisk (News - Alert), GigaSpaces customers will now be able to utilize flash
technology to apply in-memory computing and real-time analytics to a
broader set of business applications without purchasing additional
underlying hardware infrastructure-helping them lower TCO and increase
XAP MemoryXtend provides both persistent storage and the
opportunity to run much larger datasets for analytics. XAP MemoryXtend
enables the creation of a hybrid architecture which is both RAM (News - Alert) and
flash storage-based, thus enabling datasets to extend beyond DRAM and
into flash storage. With XAP MemoryXtend real-time analytics and
in-memory computing customers will be able to process larger datasets at
near DRAM speed at the cost of flash storage thereby delivering more
Transactions Per Second (TPS) per dollar1.
"SanDisk is delighted to partner with a leading-edge real-time
infrastructure provider like GigaSpaces to open up new use cases for
flash storage in the enterprise data center," said John Scaramuzzo,
Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions
at SanDisk. "Together, using ZetaScale software and XAP MemoryXtend, we
can enable users of in-memory computing and real-time analytics to enjoy
a broader set of business applications without purchasing additional
underlying hardware infrastructure."
XAP MemoryXtend is agnostic to the underlying flash storage and
supports PCIe, SAS (News - Alert), SATA, DIMMs or NVMe flash storage devices from any
vendor, giving GigaSpaces customers maximum flexibility to choose the
device that best fits their needs.
GigaSpaces' XAP is an in-memory computing platform that leverages fast
event processing and data access. XAP's capabilities include low latency
data processing, linear scalability for both data and processing, and
high availability across servers and data centers. XAP allows users to
boost an application's performance without changing the underlying
hardware to achieve better availability and uptime, and minimize license
and hardware costs.
