ScaleOut Addresses Big Data In-Memory Analytics; Adds Multi-Site, Cloud Support

Subscribe to our newsletter

ScaleOut Software has released version 5 of its ScaleOut StateServer in-memory data grid.  For the first time, it supports linking grids across physical sites, including leveraging cloud services – providing an elastic architecture for big data analysis.  Version 5 is currently available for public clouds Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure.

“By helping developers and architects transparently access data from any networked data grid location, we can dramatically simplify their applications and create important new capabilities, such as seamlessly migrating application data into the cloud for processing,” says Dr. William L. Bain, Founder and CEO of ScaleOut Software.

Version 5 also introduces optimised, property-based query of grid-based data that can be performed directly from application programs.  The .NET community can use Microsoft’s Language Integrated Query (LINQ), and Java developers can use familiar filtered queries to programmatically access groups of related data within the grid based on selected criteria associated with the data.  This capability both simplifies the structure of queries and enables fast, parallel access from all grid servers.

In addition, property-based queries are now integrated into the ScaleOut MapReduce engine, making the selection of objects for analysis intuitive and straightforward for developers.  And a new columnar-based analysis capability has been added to enable efficient analysis and updating of a targeted set of large grid objects in a manner similar to running stored procedures in a database environment.
