South Korean Enterprise Solutions Expert to Distribute GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP)
NEW YORK, NY – November 5, 2007 – GigaSpaces Technologies today announced a partnership with Korean-based Penta Systems, a leading technology company with strong experience in distributed applications, Java, middleware and application servers. As a distributor of GigaSpaces’ eXtreme Application Platform (XAP), Penta Systems will introduce XAP into the Korean market to help organizations address application scalability and performance limitations.
While most large scale enterprise IT systems currently use tier-based architecture middleware, the rapid growth of companies’ applications is causing problems within the infrastructure. With hundreds of applications running simultaneously and requiring large amounts of parallel processing, IT departments are encountering problems with performance, scalability and load dispersion.
GigaSpaces solves the issues prevalent with tier-based computing by providing a high-performance architecture that enables efficient data caching and effective grid computing through its philosophy of space-based architecture. XAP is a robust middleware platform that allows applications to achieve true linear scalability, reliability, low latency and high performance. XAP collocates data, messaging and business logic, eliminating the bottlenecks that can occur in the application server, messaging middleware and database.
“Within our customer base, the need for Extreme Transaction Processing solutions is on the rise as organizations across industries struggle to manage massive transactions,” said Jong Jun Jang, chief executive officer, Penta Systems. “GigaSpaces XAP will help our customers address the pain points they experience with traditional tier-based computing by providing increased performance and scalability through space-based architecture.”
“GigaSpaces is working to create the global standard for applications with extreme processing requirements,” said Yaron Benvenisti, chief executive officer, GigaSpaces. “Penta Systems is the ideal partner to introduce GigaSpaces’ technology to the Korean market based on the vast experience the company has in the middleware industry. We are excited to be working with this leading organization and look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
Penta Systems will officially launch its distribution of GigaSpaces XAP at the Millennium Hilton Hotel, in Seoul, Korea, on November 7th, 2007
