GridGain Partners With GigaSpaces

NEW YORK, NY -- October 30, 2007 - GigaSpaces Systems, Inc and GridGain Systems, Inc today announced their partnership, which offers a high performance grid computing platform for Java. The joint offering integrates GigaSpaces' eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) with GridGain's computation grid framework, enabling businesses to process high volumes of data -- transactional or analytical -- in extremely short periods of time. In addition, the two companies will cooperate on joint marketing and sales efforts.

GridGain provides an open source computational grid framework that enables Java developers to improve general performance of processing intensive applications by splitting and parallelizing the workload. With GridGain, developers can achieve better overall throughput, better scalability and availability of services.

GigaSpaces XAP provides a single platform for scaling-out the data, messaging and business logic of an application. By integrating the two products, GridGain customers can enjoy a highly-scalable grid computing platform for both computational and data-intensive applications. For maximum performance, GigaSpaces allows GridGain to run computational tasks in the same physical machine in which the relevant data resides in memory.
