Gigaspaces today is announcing release of version 6.0 of their eXtreme Application Platform.
From the release
As part of the new product release, GigaSpaces has embraced a much simpler, non-intrusive programming model that allows developers to write their applications in Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs), plain .Net and plain C++ objects. For Java, GigaSpaces is achieving this by supporting the Spring Framework, which is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard in Enterprise Java programming. GigaSpaces will continue supporting the other standard APIs in the product, including JavaSpaces, JMS, JDBC and Jcache
You’ll recall that Gigaspaces provides infrastructure software for enterprises that enables developers to write their business logic as if writing to a single computer and then scale out the application on multiple processors running on multiple machines. Gigaspaces solutions provide a platform for implementing high performance and scalable service-oriented architectures.
One thing I am not clear on is the difference between Gigaspaces’ offering and Digipede’s. John from Digipede has graciously educated me on the Digipede framework. If someone from those companies (or a customer) would care to outline some of the differences, I’m sure everyone would appreciate it.
