Terracotta, Inc. has released a new version of BigMemory, its in-memory big data management solution to meet customer demand for ever-increasing scale. The new version, available now, includes significant enhancements in scalability, search, and security, and improves in-memory data management. BigMemory 3.7 is ideal for organizations that require real-time, in-memory access to terabytes of data to achieve unprecedented speed, performance, and scale for the applications that power their business.

Faced with exploding data volumes -- the big data challenge -- and the need to instantaneously analyze and act on business information, companies are struggling with current big data solutions that require advanced programming skills and high-level data scientists. BigMemory provides a simple, snap-in solution that easily integrates into existing IT environments to deliver immediate business value. It unlocks the value in big data by maximizing the use of inexpensive memory (RAM) to deliver a comprehensive solution for real-time access to massive amounts of business data, delivering up to 1,000 times faster access to terabytes of data than any other technology.

Key capabilities and enhancements to BigMemory 3.7 include:

  • Massive scale: Terracotta has increased the capacity of BigMemory by a factor of 10. With BigMemory 3.7, customers can fully utilize all the memory (RAM) in terabyte servers, and linearly add servers as needed, to deploy massive in-memory big data solutions.

  • In-memory Search: Data is indexed without significant overhead so users can conduct fast searches with predictable low latencies across terabytes of in-memory data.

  • Enhanced security: BigMemory 3.7 provides transport-level security via SSL and heightened security access for monitoring and managing deployments.
