Are you Really using the Fastest and Most Scalable Cache with your Application? We are hearing lately reports from several accounts "discovering" that Terracotta ehcache is not the fastest and most scalable cache out there. GigaSpaces local cache actually performs

Possible Impossibility – The Race to Zero Latency

I recently read a book called: "Physics of the Impossible" by the theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. Dr. Kaku lists "Possible Impossibilities" and classifies these into different categories where all these "impossibilities" may happen in the near/distant future. When talking about "zero

new and modified best practices

Our best practices wiki is growing rapidly and full with good and useful material. Here are few new best practices added lately: – Finding Partition Load – routing data based on partition load. – Even Data Distribution – simple example explains how to evenly partition

Custom Matching-Two Dimensional Cartesian space Comparison using GigaSpaces

Usually you index and execute queries using primitive fields (long, float, string, etc). The fields may be within the root level of the space object, or embedded within nested objects within the space object. You may construct a query using

Benchmarking on the Cloud – Your Definitive Check List!

Introduction Evaluating a new software product usually involves running benchmark tests many times, to assess the different capabilities of the product using some measurable elements. Generally, the end result of such tests is a matrix that includes the product latency,

Ultra-Scalable and Blazing-Fast: The Sun Fire x4450-Intel 7460-GigaSpaces XAP Platform – 1.8 million operations/sec!
