BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 30 — GemStone Systems, the leading provider of distributed data management and virtualization solutions, today announced GemFire Enterprise 5.1, a core component of its high-performance, enterprise data fabric (EDF). The new GemFire Enterprise 5.1 release serves as a distributed operational data management infrastructure that sits between clustered application processes and back-end data sources to provide very low-latency, predictable, high-throughput data sharing and event distribution. By managing data in-memory, GemFire Enterprise 5.1 enables extremely high-speed data sharing that turns a network of machines into a single, logical data management unit or a data fabric.
GemFire Enterprise 5.1 introduces an advanced set of technical features to deliver powerful, end-to-end scalability and performance improvements. By augmenting native C++/C# caching capabilities, GemFire Enterprise 5.1 provides highly available asynchronous cache update notifications to ensure clients are protected against server failures.
Very cool, GemStone’s solution around a data management platform is an interesting solution, coupling that with a caching solution enhances the GemStone value proposition further. I’m off to take a look..
