Software AG Cited as a Leader of In-Memory Data Grids by Independent Research Firm
Forrester Research Inc. has named Software AG a Leader in the Forrester Wave™: In-Memory Data Grids, Q3 2015*, for its Terracotta In-Memory Data Fabric platform. In the report, author Mike Gualtieri says that Leaders “offer the most comprehensive set of features to accommodate the broadest use cases.”
According to the report, “Terracotta has a unique architecture compared to the other vendors in that it uses a striping architecture instead of a peer-to-peer architecture to achieve high-availability.” Software AG believes that this achieves high availability and is the fastest way to corral fast Big Data and then apply analytics to extract key correlations and information.
The Terracotta In-Memory Data Fabric platform leverages chip-based random access memory (RAM) distributed across multiple nodes to accelerate performance and achieve scalability of data access and computing power, with extremely low, predictable latency.
Additionally, Software AG’s Terracotta helps developers easily leverage in-memory storage for current and emerging data workloads. By holding data in-memory, existing applications can be accelerated so more customers can be served and conventional database storage and license costs saved.
Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Board, Software AG, said: “I believe that being named a ‘Leader’ by Forrester with our In-Memory Data Fabric platform underscores how essential a solution--like Software AG’s Terracotta--is in delivering critical in-memory data and compute grids. Customers expect websites and apps to be instantly responsive as well as provide increasing functionality. This can put an enormous strain on legacy, back-end, architectural components. Terracotta is perfectly designed, with its high-performance and scalability, to alleviate such a workload that includes ever-expanding, concurrent users while at the same time providing instant access to, and response from, websites and apps.”
