GemFire can be used as an operational data store and system of record. It can complement existing databases by accelerating queries and response times or serve as a lower-cost, highly scalable alternative to the monolithic RDBMS. GemFire lowers TCO—by leveraging commoditized x86 hardware and minimizing RDBMS license costs—while providing superior reliability and quality of service. With GemFire, enterprises can also leverage virtual infrastructure, as well as other data stores deployed in private, public or hybrid cloud environments.
The GemFire in-memory data architecture for global data grids and cloud data management provides the following critical capabilities:
• Delivers high-speed data processing
• Enables elastic scalability
• Provides enterprise-specific or global data
• Achieves a single, consistent view of complex transactions
• Enables real-time, situational awareness and event-driven detection
• Reduces the cost of mainframe applications
• Offers an operational data store with database reliability
