Products and Services


An in-memory data grid that delivers fast data processing for high performance, resiliency and ultra-low latency extreme transactional and stream processing for mission-critical applications. It’s a cloud-native application fabric that empowers event-driven microservices and distributed applications for real-time big data innovation. XAP provides an essential set of data store features, including transactions, indexes, and query language (SQL-like queries). It also handles common functions such as messaging, event processing, data access, and transaction processing (ACID compliant) in-memory. The persistence of the data can be performed locally on SSD and persistent memory, or alternatively on an external SQL or NoSQL database which asynchronously replicates the data to the database.


An in-memory real-time analytics processing platform for instant insights to action. Simplifying and streamlining business optimization, it delivers real-time decision support and automated intelligence by unifying fast-data analytics, AI and real-time applications. InsightEdge is built on GigaSpaces mature, cloud-native in-memory data grid (XAP), combining best-in-class analytics frameworks and serving as a real-time digital insight platform that eliminates the traditional separation between data, analytics, and applications. It overcomes the complex obstacles to operationalizing big data analytics at scale and empowers organizations to generate greater business value through instant insights and faster actions.

InsightEdge AnalyticsXtreme

Combines the power of in-memory computing performance and scalability with the co-location of data, business logic, and analytics to deliver faster and smarter insights to action. Interactive queries and machine learning models run simultaneously on both real-time mutable streaming data, hot data and historical data stored in data lakes and data warehouses, without requiring a separate data load procedure or data duplication.

Solution Highlights / Benefits

Extreme Speed

  • Ultra-low latency, high-throughput transaction, stream, and analytical processing.
  • Co-location of data, applications and analytics, eliminating the need to move data to act on time-sensitive data at milli- and micro-second performance.
  • Event-driven analytics and machine learning run simultaneously on live, hot and historical data on data lakes and data warehouses.

Extreme Scale
Elastic linear scaling and handling of peak events without performance degradation supported by a distributed in-memory scale-out, nothing-shared architecture across any environment.

Any Data

  • Ingestion, processing, and analysis from any data source including structured, unstructured or semi-structured.
  • Applications and analytics seamlessly access documents, images, tables, objects geo-location and more.

TCO Reduction

  • Simplified architecture eliminating cluster and component sprawl complexity, radically minimizing the amount of moving parts on cloud, on-premise, and hybrid environments.
  • Intelligent, multi-tiered data management across RAM, Persistent Memory, SSD, file systems (HDFS) and cloud objects stores (Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, Azure Data Lake Storage), per application business logic.

No Downtime

  • Mature, battle-tested platform for mission-critical businesses.
  • Highly available with up to 5 nines reliability and auto-healing.
  • Geo-redundancy and fast data replication for disaster recovery.
