Software AG Improves Terracotta In-Memory Data Management Platform

Software AG has made updates to its Terracotta In-Memory Data Management platform. New improvements to Terracotta Open Source Kit 4.3 include distributed storage and off-heap storage.

The platform is used for boosting performance, scalability, and building real-time applications. Additionally, Terracotta helps developers leverage in-memory storage for current and emerging data workloads.  By holding data in-memory, existing applications can be accelerated so more customers can be served while conventional database storage and license costs can be saved.

With the new distributed storage option, developers can store data in a distributed, highly fault-tolerant cluster while the off heap-storage option allows applications to use Terracotta to store data outside of the normal Java heap with several terabytes on each node versus a few gigabytes that Java heap supports.

“The Terracotta platform, serving as the backbone of Ehcache – the most widely used caching technology in the industry - has been known for many years for standards support and commitment to open source projects,” said Manish Devgan, senior director of product strategy and management at Software AG. “These new contributions deepen that commitment and enhance Terracotta further as being the leading In-Memory Data Management platform.”
