The latest release of the industry’s leading distributed in-memory data grid product, Oracle Coherence 3.7, is now available. Oracle Coherence 3.7 simplifies the configuration and management of large-scale deployments, and provides customers with dramatically more data storage capabilities and intelligent and dynamic load balancing of client connections.
The new Elastic Data feature of Oracle Coherence 3.7 introduces breakthrough technology that enables organisations to leverage both memory and disk-based devices for data grid storage, enabling near memory speed access to data, regardless of storage medium and greater flexibility in capacity and resource planning.
Customers that demand extremely high data capacity combined with low-latency data access requirements, such as financial services firms and online retailers, can use Elastic Data to seamlessly manage data across memory and disk-based devices.
Additional benefits of Elastic Data can include both the potential for significantly increased capacity, as well as smaller or more-easily managed deployments.
Oracle Coherence 3.7 introduces dynamic load balancing and automatic proxy discovery for Coherence*Extend clients, such as application servers or desktop applications accessing the Oracle Coherence data grid, allowing customers to more intelligently distribute and manage client connections, while also simplifying the configuration of large-scale environments.
Through integration with F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager and SSL Acceleration technologies, Oracle Coherence 3.7 allows users to leverage components of their existing infrastructure to secure, optimise and load balance application traffic generated from Coherence*Extend clients across any number of servers in a cluster, and to hardware-accelerate the related CPU-intensive SSL encryption.
Oracle Coherence 3.7 introduces native integration with Oracle GlassFish Server via the Coherence*Web SPI for GlassFish, providing “no code change” installation and configuration of Coherence*Web, making it dramatically easier for Oracle GlassFish Server users to scale their applications.
Oracle Coherence 3.7 is a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, and is tightly integrated with the other products in Oracle’s middleware stack. Oracle Coherence is also part of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
