Giving You An Unfair Advantage

In today's digital world, opportunities to engage with customers can be fleeting. Organizations that are unable to quickly recognize and respond to these opportunities risk losing customers and revenue to competitors. This competitive edge is driven by the ability to collect, analyze, and act on data as it is generated, during the moment of customer interaction, and the speed necessary to seize these business opportunities can only be obtained through in-memory computing.

Cited as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: In-Memory Data Grids, Q3 2015, JBoss Data Grid combines high performance with enterprise-class scale and flexibility, offering customers a powerful tool that can deliver data at the moment it is needed for real-time analysis.

JBoss Data Grid 7 addresses the need for faster data processing and more responsive applications by introducing new integration with Apache Spark, an open source framework for developing data-intensive applications. Spark processes data in-memory, and when paired with an in-memory data store such as JBoss Data Grid, helps eliminate traditional bottlenecks. JBoss Data Grid is also now fully supported as a Hadoop-compliant data source. Support for Hadoop InputFormat and OutputFormat enables the use of many analytics tools that integrate with the Hadoop I/O format.

Additional enhancements in JBoss Data Grid 7 include simplified distributing computing operations based on the Java 8 stream API, remote task and script execution, expanded polyglot support, and various ease-of-use and administration improvements.

With its speed, scale, and high availability, JBoss Data Grid is an ideal data platform to complement JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat's industry-leading open source Java EE 7 compliant application platform, to help organizations reduce or eliminate data bottlenecks.
