New Product Release Uses In-Memory Data Storage to Combine High Availability and Synchronized Access Across Multiple Sites
BELLEVUE, Wash – November 17, 2020 – ScaleOut Software today announced ScaleOut GeoServer® Pro, a new software product release that integrates site-to-site data replication with fully coherent data access for its battle-tested ScaleOut StateServer® in-memory data grid (IMDG) and distributed cache. This release extends the company’s ScaleOut GeoServer® DR product, which provides asynchronous, site-to-site data replication to protect against site-wide failures and currently is in production use.
For more than fifteen years, ScaleOut StateServer has set the standard for high performance reliability and industry-leading ease of use at hundreds of enterprise sites around the world. The product stores fast-changing data in a wide variety of applications, including ecommerce, financial services, online learning, airline reservations, gaming and much more.
“With the release of ScaleOut GeoServer Pro, we are excited to offer our customers breakthrough capabilities for multi-site storage of their fast-changing data,” said Dr. William L. Bain, founder and CEO of ScaleOut Software. “Now they can take advantage of our industry-leading technology that replicates data across sites to protect against data center failures while making fully coordinated use of the sites.”
By harnessing ScaleOut GeoServer Pro, users can now take in-memory data storage and distributed caching to the next level with an integrated solution for disaster recovery and synchronized data access across multiple sites. This technology enables applications to both protect against site-wide failures and to maintain a consistent view of data stored at all data centers.
Key ScaleOut GeoServer Pro Benefits:
ScaleOut GeoServer Pro enables organizations to store, access and protect fast-changing data at multiple sites, while maintaining a consistent view of the data at all times. The technology ensures that critical data is always accessible and synchronized across locations.
- Transparent Replication Across Data Centers: Applications can automatically replicate all stored data across multiple data centers for continuous availability in case a data center fails. This includes replicating in-memory data across different cloud regions, while automatically coordinating access to data stored at these sites.
- Integrated, Synchronized Data Access: ScaleOut GeoServer Pro introduces optional, synchronized access to replicated data across multiple data centers. This enables applications that distribute workloads across data centers to maintain a straightforward, unified view of stored data. For example, web applications which use a global load balancer to share user data held in two data centers can now use both data centers in an “active-active” configuration.
- Automatic Recovery from WAN Failures: In the event of a WAN failure between data centers, applications can independently access data at each data center. When WAN connectivity is re-established, ScaleOut GeoServer Pro automatically resolves inconsistencies in stored data due to duplicate updates during the WAN outage known as a “split-brain” condition.
- Maximize Application Performance: To maximize overall performance, ScaleOut GeoServer Pro’s caches offer flexible coherency policies so that applications can select the appropriate combination of coherency and access latency according to data usage. This avoids unnecessary WAN data usage and associated delays.
