"We are excited to announce this up-and-coming GigaSpaces platform, which is truly unique in that it offers an exclusive silo-free architecture to customers building their PaaS or SaaS environments, enabling them to gain unprecedented efficiencies and fast time to market", stated Adi Paz, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "This new product offers a field-proven technology, minimizing the risks associated with migrating to the Cloud, making former 'mission impossibles' very possible indeed."
Expanding on what current GigaSpaces' solutions offer the market - several unique new areas are included in the second-generation product, which are particularly targeted at private and hybrid Cloud-based solutions:
"Our first-gen platform, launched more two years ago, focused on enterprise application scaling and deployment to the public Cloud. As one of the earliest solution providers in the industry, we now have many satisfied customers in this field", stated Nati Shalom, CTO of GigaSpaces. "The growing demand of our customers for enterprise Cloud enablement and ISV SaaS enablement platforms was the primary driver for GigaSpaces' development of a targeted solution for this space in the first place."
The GigaSpaces PaaS and SaaS enablement platform has already been successfully deployed at companies that require a mature, proven solution for their complex, mission-critical business applications and has been tested and integrated with major strategic partners in the Cloud arena. Tier 1 enterprises and SaaS providers already benefitting from GigaSpaces Cloud enablement come from such industries as financial services, e-commerce, on-line gaming, healthcare, business process management, analytics, and telecommunications. In addition, the Cloud-enablement solution has already been integrated with leading Cloud-focused technologies with partners such as Cisco and Citrix and other international organisations, as recently presented at the GigaSpaces International Road Show.
The GigaSpaces ISV SaaS and enterprise PaaS enablement platform is scheduled to be released in Q2 2011. All the new Cloud-enablement features will be available to existing customers already using GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) solutions for enterprise scaling as an easily integrated add-ons.
