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.
