Tarari sharpens view of blade servers

Tarari has launched an API to run on top of its family of silicon-based content processors in order to allow DOM and SAX processing stacks to be optimised in enterprise applications.

Tarari has launched an API to run on top of its family of silicon-based content processors in order to allow DOM and SAX processing stacks to be optimised in enterprise applications.

The content processor products are ASICs, production boards and embedded software components designed to snap into blade and server systems.

Tarari says that XML continues to be adopted as the "lingua franca" of the internet, but the programming inefficiency of this text-based protocol leads to inefficient applications that bog down enterprise systems. It suggest that leading analysts have found that the desired response times and transaction rates over XML data can not be achieved without major improvements in XML parsing technology.

The RAX-J API is a Java-based approach to an XML cursor that is easy to work with and is claimed to improve XML application efficiency up to 400%, even without hardware acceleration. RAX-J has been designed specifically to support plug-in hardware acceleration, which Tarari says will result in even greater performance gains. RAX-J also includes optimised versions of XPath, XSLT and XML Security.
