  • 4. The Secret Sauce = Space Based Architecture (SBA)
    • A software architecture pattern for achieving linear scalability of stateful, high-performance applications
    Inspired by
    JavaSpaces & Yale’s Tuple-Space Model
    Lessons learned from Next-Gen Internet services
    Partitions the application and packages all middleware functions into one lightweight scalable unit
    The data grid is the foundation
    Linear Scalability

    Restructuring of internal data structures (for better multi-core concurrency and lock-free read)
    Refactored eviction mechanism
    New local cache storage model
    Significantly better concurrency in highly multithreaded environments (more details in next slides)
    And, significantly reduced memory footprint for indexed fields:
    XAP 6.6: 150-200 bytes per index field
    XAP 7.0: 20-30 bytes per index field
  • 11. 7.0 Performance Improvements
  • 12. 7.0 Performance Improvements
  • 13. 7.0 Performance Improvements
  • 14. Management GUI Overhaul
    Accurately reflects the XAP runtime model
    • Comprehensive monitoring of all layers: hosts, JVMs, processing units, web apps, spaces
    • 15. Detailed information about the processing unit
    • 16. Operate on all cluster layers:start and stop JVMs, deploy/undeploy PUs,relocate running instances, scale up/down
  • The GigaSpaces Agent
    New runtime component
    Think of it as the GigaSpaces daemon / service
    Agent can start, stop and restart other runtime components:
    GSM, GSC, LUS, Custom
    Just start the agent, the rest will be done for you
    Define global/local number of GSMs, GSCs and LUSs
    e.g. 4 global GSMs, 2 local (per machine) GSCs, 2 global LUSs
