VMware Announces VMware vFabric(TM) GemFire(R) 7.0 
Cutting-Edge In-Memory Data Grid Addresses Enterprise Demand for
Lightning Fast, Highly Available and Scalable Data Access for Modern
Applications 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/30/12 --  VMware, Inc. (NYSE:
VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure,
today announced the availability of VMware vFabric(TM) GemFire(R)
7.0, the premier in-memory data platform delivering speed and dynamic
scalability, together with the reliability and data management
capabilities of a traditional database. Faster and more flexible than
ever before, this latest release enables users to process massive
quantities of data and scale within the cloud to suit the needs of
the user, while providing new tools to simplify monitoring and
management. Also included in this version is native support for
JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) documents. Popular with mobile and
other web developers, vFabric GemFire brings high performance,
scale-out, transactional support and other enterprise-grade features
to JSON not available from competing data offerings. 
"The monolithic database of the past cannot meet the needs of modern
applications," said Jerry Chen, Vice President, Cloud and Application
Services, VMware. "Proven through nearly a decade of production
deployments in some of the most high-availability low-latency
applications, VMware vFabric(TM) GemFire(R) 7.0 solves difficult data
challenges presented by modern, highly distributed web-oriented
applications." 
With this release, vFabric GemFire enables speed with scalability in
the cloud, supporting terabytes of data in-memory and enabling
high-performance within enterprise production deployments. Engineered
for low latency, vFabric GemFire provides lightning fast, highly
available and scalable data access for highly transactional modern
applications, allowing businesses to run applications significantly
faster than a traditional database. 
What's New in VMware vFabric GemFire 7.0: 


 
--  Cloud scale at the speed of business - With enhanced caching and wide
    area network (WAN) capabilities, vFabric GemFire was engineered to
    support low-latency applications that can scale to support terabytes
    of data and hundreds of thousands of users. New, high-
speed parallel
    WAN processing allows customers to scale vFabric GemFire across global
    sites without sacrificing speed or performance.
--  Simplified monitoring and management - vFabric GemFire includes new
    graphical dashboard and performance monitoring capabilities that give
    customers visibility across distributed vFabric GemFire environments
    through a single console. A simplified command line interface (CLI)
    and new "DataBrowser" functionality allow customers to easily view
    data, make queries and control all aspects of the vFabric GemFire
    environment.
--  Increased developer productivity - vFabric GemFire's modern APIs and
    integration with the Spring framework speed and simplify development.
    Now, vFabric GemFire includes integration with the Spring Data GemFire
    project, including documentation and code samples to make it even
    easier to develop and support scalable, transactional enterprise
    applications. Further, applications using Memcached can transition
    smoothly to vFabric GemFire with minimal to zero developer impact
    since vFabric GemFire 7.0 supports the Memcached client protocol.
--  JSON document support - vFabric GemFire 7.0 natively supports storing
    and querying of JSON documents. vFabric GemFire brings
    enterprise-grade capabilities to a JSON store including very low
    latency, horizontal scale-out, transaction support, security and
    continuous query. It supports the ability to query between multiple
    JSON documents as well as across JSON documents and key/value objects.
    With this new capability, vFabric GemFire can be effectively used as a
    production-ready backend document store for REST and mobile
    applications.

  
Leading global 1,000 companies utilize vFabric GemFire including those
in the financial services industry, online retail, travel and many
others.
