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.

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...
