An Introduction to Terracotta’s Enterprise IT Optimization Capabilities

They offer services, support software and solutions

Terracotta offers data optimization technologies that take current IT capabilities and enable scalability, availability and performance. They offer services, support software and solutions such as BigMemory, which stores “big data” in machine memory for ultra-fast access, Enterprise Ehcache, which plugs into enterprise applications and expedites integration and high-performance scalability, and Quartz Scheduler provides simple and flexible job execution from within execution code.

BigMemory
While Big Data is clearly more than a just a buzzword, our data is exploding at an exponential pace, there is a need for solutions that manage big data in all forms. Terracotta offers the ability to store big data in memory (even Terabytes), providing faster access for applications. By keeping big data close, and local, applications can run more smoothly and incur tenfold performance gains.

Enterprise Ehcache
Enterprise Ehcache makes Java caching more easily distributable for greater scalability across the network. Ehcache can provide a huge improvement in application response time, while opening up headroom for multiple gigabyte data growth. Lastly, Ehcache can help offload slow expensive databases and mainframes.

Terracotta enhances the ability of Java applications to function enterprise wide

Quartz Scheduler
Quartz Scheduler continues Terracotta’s open source Quartz project to provide execution scheduling for any java application. Quartz Scheduler spans the continuum from single node to clustered, multi-node configurations and is robust enough to handle hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of concurrent jobs. This allows for one of the key tenets of IT – automation. Automating scripts and jobs can help create a more resilient enterprise.

These solutions speed up and increase the capabilities of current IT infrastructure. The BigMemory capability increases the ability of applications to interact with large data stores. Enterprise Ehcache changes the way in which you cache your java applications, again speeding use and operability of applications. Quartz scheduler helps automate applications and create efficiencies.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
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. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO are the world's most influential, independent events where Cloud Computing was coined and where technology buyers and vendors meet to experience and discuss the big picture of Digital Transformation and all of the strategies, tactics, and tools they need to realize their goals. Sponsors of DXWorldEXPO | CloudEXPO benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities.

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...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

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...
