8.0’s "Same Data, Any API" capability promotes openness and interoperability, supporting all common interfaces for accessing data, such as Memcached, JPA, JMS, Document, and the highly efficient native object-oriented API. 8.0 ensures you can choose the best API for the use case at hand and operate on the same data regardless of the APIs you have chosen. This, in turn, significantly decreases the learning curve associated with adopting the XAP technology, as organizations can use their existing knowledge base to embrace the technologies of tomorrow.

Another major step forward with 8.0 is its support for continuous scaling. Mission-critical enterprise applications – such as in the financial services sector – and Web-focused applications, like e-commerce, online gaming, and social media require continuous changes to the application without bringing the system down. Continuous scaling allows for rolling upgrades, continuous deployment, quick introduction of complex features, and real-time changes to the applications data model, business logic, or even underlying platform with zero downtime. This guarantees that businesses can immediately react to market demands without worrying about costly downtime.

Operations and administration are also simplified with 8.0; XAP’s elastic middleware capabilities encompass the entire application stack, significantly simplifying the administration of applications across large clusters and providing proactive scaling and recovery from failure based on predefined SLA rules. The new simplified Alerting API enables real-time problem isolation and prevention by identifying problematic or erroneous situations and reporting them to the user. The new multi-site deployment support makes deploying and managing geographically distributed applications easier than ever.

GigaSpaces’ long-term vision has been to create a platform that optimizes data-center and cloud readiness, making the development, deployment and operations processes of the most demanding applications more efficient. With XAP 8.0, distributed, scalable and highly performing applications can be designed, modified, and implemented quickly while leveraging existing knowledge and technology resources.
