GigaSpaces Silo-Free Approach to PaaS and SaaS

GigaSpaces Technologies has announced the upcoming release of its second-generation cloud-enablement platform. The new product proposes to offer a silo-free architecture aimed specifically at enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and ISV Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enablement.

The company highlights new areas included in this second-generation product, which are particularly targeted at private and hybrid cloud-based solutions. These include a silo-free architecture, which comes to represent a converged end-to-end application and data environment with cross-stack elasticity, multi-tenancy, unified SLA-driven performance, central management, and simplifying development and operational processes.

"This new product offers a field-proven technology, minimizing the risks associated with migrating to the cloud, making former 'mission impossibles' very possible indeed," said Adi Paz, VP of marketing at GigaSpaces. "There is also cross-stack fine-grained multi-tenancy from the web tier down to the customer and data object levels that is user, data and application policy-driven. This provides easy management and monitoring through a management console with full control, security, and visibility over all of the multi-tenancy aspects of the application."

GigaSpaces is also introducing:

  • Built-in DevOps -- to uniformly manage and automate the lifecycle of the entire application middleware and its resources, dramatically reducing operational and development complexity.

  • Out-of-the-box third-party middleware management (e.g. Tomcat, Cassandra, JMS) -- to automate and manage all application middleware services during deployment and in production.

  • New openness -- to provide portability, multi-language and multi-middleware support, along with easy integration with existing processes and systems for private, public, and hybrid clouds.

"Our first-gen platform, launched more than two years ago, focused on enterprise application scaling and deployment to the public cloud. As one of the earliest solution providers in the industry, we now have many satisfied customers in this field," says Nati Shalom, CTO of GigaSpaces. "The growing demand of our customers for enterprise cloud enablement and ISV SaaS enablement platforms was the primary driver for GigaSpaces' development of a targeted solution for this space in the first place."
