GridGain Announces Support Offering for Apache® Ignite™ that Includes Subscription to New GridGain Professional Edition

Enables Organizations to Confidently Use Apache Ignite in Production Environments

FOSTER CITY, Calif. – April 19, 2016GridGain Systems, provider of enterprise-grade In-Memory Data Fabric solutions based on Apache® Ignite™, announced today the availability of its Standard Professional Support subscription, which includes a license for the new GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric - Professional Edition 1.5, a fully supported version of Apache Ignite. GridGain Professional Edition includes the latest version of Apache Ignite plus high-value LGPL libraries. The Professional Edition subscription includes monthly maintenance releases with timely bug fixes that have been contributed to the Apache Ignite project but that will be included only with the next quarterly Ignite release. Designed for companies that want support, timely access to bug fixes, and an easily deployed package when using Apache Ignite in production environments, the GridGain Professional Edition 1.5 is available on a subscription basis to customers of GridGain’s new Standard Professional Support service.

“Many organizations have incorporated Apache Ignite in their application architecture to scale out and speed up their applications,” said Abe Kleinfeld, President and CEO of GridGain. “As these applications move into production, organizations need expert support, access to timely maintenance releases and the ability to request priority bug fixes from the vendor that can best address their needs quickly and effectively. The GridGain Professional Edition is the platform we’ve produced to push out maintenance releases much faster than Apache Ignite in an easy-to-install package.”

Based on Apache Ignite, the GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric enables high-performance transactions that run 1,000x faster than disk-based approaches. It provides high-speed transactions, real-time streaming and fast analytics in a single, comprehensive data access and processing layer. The solution powers existing or new applications in a distributed, massively parallel architecture on affordable, industry-standard hardware, which can be easily scaled by adding more nodes to the compute grid. The GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric requires minimal or no modifications to the application or database layers for architectures built on SQL, NoSQL or Apache® Hadoop® databases.
