VMware announces VMware vFabric GemFire 7.0

New in-memory data grid addresses enterprise demand for scalable data access for modern applications

VMware, Inc. announced the availability of VMware vFabric GemFire 7.0, an in-memory data platform.

This latest release enables users and solution providers to process massive quantities of data and scale within the cloud to suit the needs of the customer, while providing new tools for monitoring and management, the company said.

Also included in this version is native support for JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) documents. VFabric GemFire also brings high performance, scale-out, transactional support and other enterprise-grade features to JSON, VMware claims.

Jerry Chen, Vice President, Cloud and Application Services, VMware, said the monolithic database of the past cannot meet the needs of modern applications. “Proven through nearly a decade of production deployments in some of the most high-availability low-latency applications, VMware vFabric GemFire 7.0 solves difficult data challenges presented by modern, highly distributed web-oriented applications.”

With this release, vFabric GemFire enables speed with scalability in the cloud, supporting terabytes of data in-memory and enabling high-performance within enterprise production deployments. Engineered for low latency, vFabric GemFire provides highly available and scalable data access for highly transactional modern applications.
