"The proliferation of devices has dramatically changed the requirements for IT
organizations chartered with the gathering, management, analysis and delivery
of important data and insights," said Robin Gilthorpe, Chief Executive Officer
of Terracotta, Inc. "In order to stay competitive, organizations must quickly
and easily extract real-time data, not only to and from traditional desktop
and laptop computers, but also to and from mobile devices such as smart
phones, tablets and point-of-sale terminals. The emergence of the Industrial
Internet and machine-to-machine communications means billions of sensors are
now a new type of client, adding further complexity. All of these demands
have exacerbated the need for a solution like In-Genius that will enable
businesses to not just access huge amounts of data quickly, but also to act on
it instantly."

Scaling Up and Out
In-Genius will deliver real-time insights from any kind of data and distribute
them to any delivery channel, including web, mobile and point-of-sale, for
immediate action. At the same time, In-Genius will enable a brand new class of
applications that easily scale up and out and adapt to new dynamic data sets,
while empowering enterprises in ways that have not been achievable using
traditional data management approaches based on antiquated disk drive centric
IT architectures.

"The Industrial Internet has opened up new horizons, using intelligent
machines to accelerate productivity, reduce inefficiency and waste, while
still enhancing the human work experience," said Bill Ruh, Vice President and
Corporate Officer, GE Global Software Headquarters. "These intelligent
machines both create and rely on massive amounts of data to make smart
decisions, and as such, the continuing evolution of in-memory capabilities
will be critical to organizations like GE. Merging the physical worlds of
machines with even faster access to, and analysis and action on huge data sets
will allow us to transform the world."

In-Memory Capabilities Core to In-Genius
In-Genius will be powered by Terracotta's new BigMemory 4.0 in-memory data
platform, also announced today and currently available. Due to BigMemory 4.0,
IT organizations can move all their important data into main memory for speed,
scale and simplicity, and are no longer bound by their historic costly and
complicated data management approaches.

The In-Genius platform will integrate ultra-low latency messaging and event
stream processing of data from all data sources, forming a powerful, scalable
and very fast in-memory platform. In-Genius will also enable high-volume
applications to communicate in microseconds with each other and with in-memory
data stores. With its event-driven architecture, In-Genius will gather and act
upon streaming or complex events for reporting, analysis and real-time

The ability to act on insights derived from terabytes of data in real-time can
transform entire industries:

  oFinancial Services -- Save billions annually on fraudulent transactions.
    Terracotta In-Genius will allow companies to stop such transactions using
    complex pattern detection before transaction authorization rather than
  oLogistics Companies -- Real-time supply management routings based not only
    on package location but also on historical data, traffic sensors, weather,
    calendar events and other patterns emerging from data.
  oRetailers -- Instant and personalized recommendations not just on the web
    but at the point-of-sale across all stores, significantly enhancing
    revenues and personalizing the consumer's shopping experience for enhanced
    brand loyalty.

"At AdJuggler, we're building a one million transaction-per-second online
advertising marketplace," said Ben Lindquist, Vice President of Technology at
AdJuggler. "Speed at scale is everything, and we are past the point where we
can do things in traditional ways. Terracotta and BigMemory will allow us to
scale the backend of our system beyond a million transactions per second and
make it globally distributed. Disks are now relegated to archiving. With
In-Genius we will be able to utilize its complex event processing to
automatically generate our accounting records, giving us a distinct advantage
over our competition."

In-Genius general availability is planned for the third quarter of calendar
