Data grid doings at Red Hat JBoss World

At Red Hat JBoss World this week Red Hat, Inc. disclosed a controlled beta of  JBoss Enterprise Data Grid 6. In recent years, commercial data grids – or data caches – have come into use in high-performance, cloud computing and some Web commerce applications. Is there room for another? Probably, yes.

 

Though late to the party by some estimates, Red Hat claims its JBoss Enterprise Data Grid, which grows out of the ongoing Infinispan open source software project, brings new traits to this class of software – traits aimed at today’s caching data needs. The data grid offering will complement Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and contemporary shared-services architectures, the company said.

 

Red Hat execs told us they are proposing the Infinispan work for inclusion in a Java Community Process standard. There, they will encounter IBM and Oracle, who have their own Java-enabled data caching products. No problem, Red Hat says -  they would just like to “start the process” on some new caching standards for Java.
