ScaleOut StateServer v5.1 Extends In-Memory Data Grid with C++ APIs

New features include the availability of ScaleOut GeoServer and ScaleOut hServer on Amazon Web Services

ScaleOut Software has announced the availability of ScaleOut StateServer Version 5.1. The latest version includes C++ APIs, additional solutions on Amazon Web Services, a Windows version of ScaleOut hServer, performance improvements in data management, and SSL support for enhanced security.

ScaleOut provides in-memory data grid (IMDG) products with breakthrough performance to the rapidly expanding in-memory computing market. ScaleOut's products enable applications to seamlessly scale performance to handle increasing workloads and provide real-time analytics.

"With this release, C++ developers now can easily integrate ScaleOut's IMDG into their applications to provide scalable performance, as well as parallel query and integrated real-time analytics for applications written in C++," said Bill Bain, ScaleOut's CEO. "The added capabilities in Version 5.1 also introduce significant enhancements to ScaleOut StateServer's features and performance and broaden its availability in the cloud."

ScaleOut StateServer Version 5.1 enhancements include the following:

  • Open Source C++ APIs - The addition of C++ APIs enables C++ applications to take advantage of the full range of ScaleOut StateServer's feature set. These open source APIs enable fully parallel, property-based query and make use of Google protocol buffers to simplify the management of data serialization.
  • ScaleOut GeoServer and ScaleOut hServer available through Amazon Web Services - ScaleOut GeoServer, which enables the seamless combination of in-memory data grids across multiple sites into a single virtual data grid, and ScaleOut hServer, the industry-leading in-memory execution engine for Hadoop MapReduce, will now be available in the AWS Marketplace. These offerings are the latest additions to the usage-based licensing of ScaleOut's in-memory products on AWS.
  • Windows version of ScaleOut hServer - The availability of a Windows version enables users to run ScaleOut hServer to perform Java-based, in-memory Hadoop MapReduce on Windows systems.
  • Enhancements to underlying architecture - Version 5.1 releases major enhancements to the underlying IMDG architecture, including a 5X faster transport for load-balancing data between servers and a new implementation of adaptive heart beating for greater resiliency in virtual server environments.
  • SSL support
    Version 5.1 also enables the optional use of SSL-based security for client connections and data replication between sites, making it easy to encrypt data moving across networks for enhanced security.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
