Terracotta Brings Big Memory to Java

Michael Vizard

Terracotta wants to bring the benefits of lots of memory to Java applications.

The provider of a distributed caching platform for running Java applications in memory today announced BigMemory for Enterprise Ehcache.

According to Terracotta CEO Amit Pandey, Java applications have a difficult time when it comes to taking advantage of large amounts of memory because of the overhead introduced by the Java garbage collection process. BigMemory for Enterprise Ehcache eliminates the need for the garbage collection process that, over time, slows Java application performance.

With the addition of BigMemory for Enterprise Ehcache, developers of Java applications can now cache 64GB or more of memory, Pandey said.

With the advent of new processor architectures, more applications are being run directly out of memory to dramatically improve performance. Terracotta has developed a distributed Ehcache platform that manages memory access across multiple servers.

With the addition of Big Memory, Pandey said he expects distributed caching to gain more traction with developers as they seek to take advantage of the large pools of memory that are now available on the latest generation of processors.
