Tangosol: clustered, coherent caching
The use case
Tangosol provides synchronized, clustered caching solutions that significantly improve data access for Java applications. Codemesh technology brings the power of Coherence to C++ applications.
Tangosol™ is an industry leader in delivering data clustering and distributed caching solutions to companies building and running mission-critical, enterprise J2EE applications and application components. Major institutions in the banking, trading, and insurance industries, as well as platform technology vendors in the application server, performance management, and application security markets, rely on Tangosol Coherence™ software. Coherence provides uninterrupted, synchronized, coordinated access to their most critical and often-used data at incredible speed. Data access is sustained even under the heaviest loads. At the same time, Coherence assures that this data survives intact and stays accessible during intermittent system outages and down times.
Tangosol Coherence is a JCache-compliant, in-memory caching and data management solution for clustered J2EE applications, application servers, and C++ applications. Coherence makes sharing and managing data in a cluster as simple as on a single server. It accomplishes this by coordinating updates to the data using cluster-wide concurrency control, replicating and distributing data modifications across the cluster using the highest performing clustered protocol available, and delivering notifications of data modifications to any servers that request them. Developers can easily take advantage of Coherence features using the standard Java collections API to access and modify data, and use the standard JavaBean event model to receive data change notifications. Functionality, such as HTTP session replication, is available out-of-the-box for applications deployed on BEA® WebLogic® 7, IBM® WebSphere® 4, Tomcat 4, and all Servlet 2.3-compliant application servers.
Tangosol's software products are recognized for their unparalleled quality, reliability, and ability to provide consistent scalability under heavy load and are actively tested and supported on leading platforms such as BEA WebLogic and IBM WebSphere, and on leading server operating systems such as Sun Solaris™, Microsoft® Windows®, IBM AIX, and Linux.
Tangosol was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Somerville, Massachusetts.
