GridGain Announces Immediate Availability of Latest Releases of its Award-Winning In-Memory Data Fabric

Powered by Apache Ignite™ (incubating), GridGain Enterprise Edition v7.0 and GridGain Community Edition v1.0.1 Sport New Ease-of-Use and Automation Features Simplifying Fast Data Processing

AUSTIN, Texas – April 13, 2015 (ApacheCon) – Today, at ApacheCon North America, GridGain™ Systems (, the leading innovator behind open source and commercial in-memory data fabric solutions that accelerate business operations and time to insights for the enterprise and in the cloud, announced that two new releases of the award-winning GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric, built on Apache Ignite™ (incubating), are available for download immediately on the GridGain website.

The GridGain Enterprise Edition v7.0 Powered by Apache Ignite™ (incubating) was announced in February, and is a complete, enterprise-grade software solution for enabling high-volume transactions, real-time analytics and hybrid transactional-analytical processing in a single, highly scalable data access and processing layer. Through unified APIs, it offers ultimate speed and scale to new and existing applications (Java, .NET, C++, etc.) on-premises and in the cloud, and allows queries across diverse data stores containing structured, semi-structured and unstructured data (SQL, NoSQL, Hadoop). GridGain Enterprise Edition v7.0 includes new ease-of-use and automation features, including support for JCache (JSR-107), Auto-Loading of SQL Data and Dynamic Cache Creation, which help simplify the deployment of the software and the migration from legacy in-memory data grids. GridGain Enterprise Edition v7.0 also sports features such as datacenter replication, enterprise-grade security and rolling upgrades, boosting its resilience in mission-critical or large-scale production deployments, and is available to download now.

Also immediately available from the GridGain website is the new GridGain Community Edition v1.0.1 Powered by Apache Ignite™ (incubating). This open source release of the GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric is a binary convenience build of the recently released Apache Ignite™ (incubating) 1.0 code base; it includes optional LGPL dependencies and additional testing by GridGain.

"The GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric, unlike data grids or in-memory databases, offers a strategic approach to in-memory computing and reduces the cost and complexity of connecting large-scale data and applications from various sources with high speed and cloud scale," said Abe Kleinfeld, President and CEO of GridGain. "Now powered by Apache Ignite™, the leading open source In-Memory Data Fabric, and available as a Community Edition and a hardened Enterprise Edition, these innovative and proven software solutions from GridGain offer unheard-of data throughput, predictable latencies, and elastic scaling, allowing real-time businesses on-premises and in the cloud to unleash their competitive advantage by easily conquering today's Fast Data challenges."

GridGain Enterprise Edition v7.0 and GridGain Community Edition v1.0.1 are available for download immediately at the GridGain website.
