GemStone Systems, a provider of distributed data management and virtualisation tools, has introduced Gemfire Enterprise 5.1, a core component of its high-performance, enterprise data fabric (EDF).
Gemfire Enterprise 5.1 works as a distributed operational data management infrastructure that sits between clustered application processes and back-end data sources to provide low-latency, predictable, high-throughput data sharing and event distribution. By managing data in memory, Gemfire Enterprise 5.1 enables high-speed data sharing that turns a network of machines into a single, logical data management unit or a data fabric, GemStone Systems said.
Jags Ramnarayan, chief architect at GemStone Systems, said, "There are a large number of variables in a distributed system which significantly increase the possibility of an error, such as loss of data consistency, missed event notifications, or failure conditions arising from applications, resource limitations or machine failures."
The combination of distributed data caching with reliable message delivery provides users with the tools to build next generation high-performance, real-time applications, he explained.
Users of Gemstone include Charles Schwab, JPMorgan Chase, and Merrill Lynch.
