Specific characteristics

GigaSpaces, the pioneer of In-Memory Computing, drives enterprise digital transformation with unparalleled speed, performance and scale. The GigaSpaces InsightEdge Portfolio delivers the fastest, scalable and easiest to deploy, suite of software platforms to meet the most challenging enterprise data and analytics processing needs. It includes:

Smart Cache - The fastest, most scalable distributed caching tier on any operational data source, to accelerate your digital applications and fuel real-time reporting and BI.

Smart Operational Data Store (ODS) - A distributed in-memory operational data store, with unparalleled low-latency, high-performance & scale that aggregates and offloads from multiple systems of record.

Smart Augmented Transactions - An in-memory Translytical platform that unifies streaming, real-time transactional (ACID compliant) and analytical processing for instant insights and closed loop decision making.

Competitive advantages
  • AI Driven Autonomous Operations – GigaSpaces’ unique AI driven technology simplifies and optimizes DataOps to automatically balance between cost and performance, and reduce the IT overhead to zero. The platform automatically scales the system to address analytical and transactional workloads, automatically tiers the data between the cache and the database and automatically optimizes data indexing for faster access.
  • One-Click Database Integration - GigaSpaces unique One-Click Data Connect supports faster go-live and ongoing data integration to reduce weeks of development overhead by automatically mapping the database to the GigaSpaces model.
  • Business Driven Caching Policy - GigaSpaces provides an advanced and customized caching and eviction policy based on the application’s business policy that can store the critical data in cache even if it is not commonly used. (not-only LRU)
  • Multi Criteria Queries - GigaSpaces advanced indexing capabilities supports querying the data over multiple criteria (dimensions) with higher performance and lower memory footprint.
  • True Cloud Native - GigaSpaces provides out-of-the-box, fully agnostic, cloud management functionality, such as hot rolling deployment, upgrade, monitoring, scaling and recovery; all with no downtime.
  • Fast Aggregations - GigaSpaces provides the best aggregation engine in the industry. Slice and dice is the bread and butter of the product, which is why Tier-1 enterprises use it as their trading engine, payment processing, BI engine and other heavy duty queries use cases.
  • Multi Region Data Fabric - GigaSpaces provides the ability to run your ODS across different regions and environments to address the global organization needs, whether they are local or remote, on-prem, in-cloud or hybrid.
