Take Your Application to the Next Level of Performance & Scalability

Organizations looking to eliminate database bottlenecks in order to guarantee consistency, transactional security, reliability, and high availability of data, have increasingly been doing so through in-memory data grids.

An in-memory data grid delivers fast data access, extreme performance, and scalability companies today require.

With an IMDG you can dynamically scale the data layer, responding to loads in real time, while significantly boosting the performance of mission-critical applications. This partnered with powerful event handling and comprehensive administration and monitoring capabilities, provides enterprise-grade availability and reliability, guaranteeing virtually zero unanticipated downtime.

To learn more about how to achieve these goals with the GigaSpaces In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG), take a look at this white paper, which will provide you with an overview of how to easily take your application to the next level of performance and scalability, through different deployment topologies, data replication, monitoring & management, access & query support, database integration, and more.

Attribution Modeling + Are Your Ads Seen

Tuesday, December 6th 1 - 1:30 PM EST

If you do any level of Display Adverting, you may be wondering:

  • Are my ads actually being seen?
  • What's a viewable impression?
  • Do iFrames matter?
  • How do we use this data intelligently?

The fact is, the IAB has issued recommendations that will redefine an impression and totally changes the game. Seen ad impressions will change more than 50% of all of your metrics, including Attribution. Knowing how to answer these questions can result in significant improvements in online advertising performance and puts you ahead of the rest of your coworkers.

This free 30-minute webinar will explore how new technology can determine which ads have been seen by users and will discuss the results of the C3 Metrics Labs analysis of over 2 billion impressions in Q4.

ScaleOut StateServer® Delivers Map/Reduce Analysis and Scalable Application Performance

Using distributed data grids on high demand Web sites has become a common practice to provide scalability and high availability, but did you know that a distributed in-memory data grid such as ScaleOut StateServer® can be used to analyze in-memory data in near real-time?

The map/reduce development model has recently grown in popularity as open source solutions such as Hadoop have captured media attention. While popular for very large datasets, Hadoop uses a file system for storage, slowing down performance – and it can be hard to use. ScaleOut StateServer’s in-memory data grids do fully parallel map/reduce exceptionally fast by performing all operations on data stored in memory, avoiding I/O bottlenecks inherent in disk-based storage. With ScaleOut StateServer, data is analyzed in place reducing network traffic and simplifying development time by automatically pushing the user’s computational logic to every node in the grid. With integrated APIs that enable on-demand analytics, long computational runs are over. You don’t even need parallel programming skills.

ScaleOut StateServer is compatible with all major platforms and languages making it a highly adaptable development solution. You can even seamlessly migrate your on-premise data grid to and from the cloud for additional scalability.

Gain competitive advantage with rapid access to business intelligence. Learn more about ScaleOut StateServer® and download a free evaluation trial today.
