JBoss Enterprise Data Grid combines elastic caching with cloud computing
At the JBoss World conference, being held concurrently with the Red Hat Summit, Red Hat has presented the JBoss Enterprise Data Grid early-access program. The new product is said to be a cloud-enabled, highly scalable distributed data cache designed to ease the load on database servers, reduce response times in applications and provide enhanced failure resilience. The technology has been released as version 6 and is based on the Infinispan JBoss community project.
JBoss Enterprise Data Grid has apparently been designed in a way that enables it to offer high-performance direct data access using such cloud capabilities as multi-tenancy, elasticity and distributed code execution. It is based on NoSQL technologies such as Amazon's Dynamo and reportedly integrates accepted enterprise architectures and design patterns.
