GigaSpaces and GoGrid Launch Cloud Computing Solution

Joint offering enables Java, .NET and C++ applications to scale on-demand

GigaSpaces Technologies and GoGrid have announced the availability of the GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) on GoGrid's enterprise-grade cloud computing service for Windows and Linux. The two companies' joint offering enables enterprises to migrate existing and new Java, J2EE, .NET and C++ applications to a cloud computing infrastructure with an hourly pay-per-use pricing model.

Increasingly, enterprises are looking to reduce costs and shorten time-to-market by running their applications on public cloud computing services, such as GoGrid. However, traditional application platforms and middleware do not allow applications to truly take advantage of the cloud, as they are built for static environments. GigaSpaces XAP addresses these challenges by allowing Java, .NET and C++ applications to grow and shrink on-demand with complete reliability and high performance.

In addition to the robust Linux systems provided by GoGrid and the Java capabilities offered by GigaSpaces, the joint solution is unique in its offering for running .NET applications on the cloud by combining GoGrid's Windows-based cloud with GigaSpaces' .NET API.

Leveraging GigaSpaces, enterprises can also benefit from the notion of "cloudbursting," creating a hybrid cloud model that allows applications to "burst" from the organization's local IT resources to GoGrid's public cloud. This enables them to handle peak loads, without any code changes or re-architecture of the application.

The two companies are further enhancing the joint offering to provide a seamless development, testing and deployment experience, including a single-click deployment to the cloud.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world. Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
