The latest release of GridGain’s in-memory computing platform includes enhanced support for its multi-tier database engine. 

The dictionary-based cache entry compression is now capable of compression ratios of up to 60% on real-world scenarios.

The introduction of defragmentation reduces data files and frees up disk space while storing current cached data durability on a disk.  Also new in this edition are SQL memory quotas on node or query level that prevent out-of-memory issues when executing SQL queries requiring significant memory space.

“As our customers expand their use of GridGain, they increasingly require the flexibility to scale workloads beyond available memory capacity,” said Abe Kleinfeld, president and CEO of GridGain. “As a result, we are continuing to evolve our data persistence technology to simplify GridGain cluster management, reduce disk requirements and improve performance, while lowering TCO and accelerating time to value. The combination of more effective disk utilization and higher memory quotas for SQL allows GridGain to support significantly larger and more complex real-time analytics use cases.”
