"This release represents a breakthrough in our ongoing work to make in-memory computing more accessible to .NET developers," said Dr. William Bain, CEO and founder of ScaleOut Software. "By combining the speed and scalability of distributed, memory-based storage with an integrated compute engine, we are giving the Microsoft developer community a competitive edge while leveraging familiar computing patterns. Now mission-critical .NET applications can easily perform sub-second analysis on live data sets at scale to provide real-time feedback before the moment is lost."
In addition to Distributed ForEach, version 5.5 adds several new features that deepen support for .NET development, including:
- Comprehensive PowerShell management cmdlets: enable IT administrators to use .NET's PowerShell scripts to deploy and manage ScaleOut's IMDG.
- Asynchronous API methods: take full advantage of .NET's asynchronous programming model for maximizing performance on multicore systems.
- ISO 19770-2 software tagging (SWID) on Windows: provides accurate software identification data that improves organizational security and lowers IT costs.
- Distributed push-based notifications (preview): adds operators compatible with the popular ReactiveX library which let applications scale the throughput of real-time event processing by transparently distributing notifications across ScaleOut's IMDG and integrated compute engine.
"We needed to find a replacement for Microsoft's AppFabric Caching. We were very impressed with ScaleOut StateServer's ease-of-use and high performance. However, we needed specific asynchronous .NET APIs for our solution architecture," said Peter Šulek, senior developer for the SYNOT Group Slot Program based in the Slovak Republic. "ScaleOut Software's development team worked closely with us to address our specific requirements and delivered a quality version 5.5 pre-release that added the async/await feature we needed to keep us on schedule. We are very pleased with the excellent performance as well as the overall stability and reliability of the platform."
Version 5.5 includes features introduced across ScaleOut Software's portfolio of IMDG and in-memory computing products, which include ScaleOut StateServer®, ScaleOut ComputeServer®, ScaleOut hServer® and ScaleOut GeoServer®.
