Overcome RDBMS scale, latency and cost issues
Today’s business must deal with the perfect storm of data challenges: more data arriving faster, from more sources, and with a shorter decision-making window. Conventional relational databases cannot deliver the data access speeds or elastic scalability that is required. VMware vFabric GemFire obliterates critical data base limitations with in-memory data management and processing.
Global data backbone
If you had a single, consistent view of data, your organization and application’s reactions would accelerate exponentially. Managing critical business data in a global data grid that is automatically synchronized in real-time across all repositories gives you this single view. Even while in process, data integrity is maintained. And should there ever be a system failure, nothing is lost thanks to data replication.
Reduce the cost of mainframe applications
It’s time to break your costly mainframe dependencies. VMware vFabric GemFire significantly reduces mainframe (MIPS) usage and costs while delivering higher performance across batch processing and data integration projects. Batch jobs that once took hours are now completed in seconds. The agility provided by VMware vFabric GemFire means changes are easier and faster. And with horizontal scaling, you get additional savings by leveraging commodity x86 hardware.
Simplify database provisioning and governance
Databases are time-consuming to provision. Without automated policies and role-based access, they also make it difficult to maintain good corporate governance and eliminate database sprawl. By taking advantage of virtualization and cloud computing capabilities, vFabric Data Director enables IT organizations to provide self-service database provisioning to their developers and enable DBaaS.
