Power of Terracotta Now Available as High-Performance Distributed Cache Plug-In for Hibernate, Supercharging the Popular Data Access Backbone for Enterprise Java Applications SAN FRANCISCO--(Business Wire)-- Terracotta, a recognized leader in infrastructure software for enterprise Java scalability, today announced the availability of Terracotta 3.1. The new release, which is already available for download, includes Terracotta for Hibernate, a plug-in distributed cache for the widely-used Hibernate Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework. Coupled with Terracotta`s recent acquisition of the world`s most popular Java caching framework, Ehcache, this new release marks yet another significant milestone in delivering simple scalability to a wider range of organizations that build software using the Java platform. Organizations running Java applications are actively seeking ways to continue using the Hibernate framework they prefer, while reducing the heavy load on the database it can create. Based on actual deployment results, Terracotta for Hibernate slashes latency to times typically under 1 millisecond, making applications far more responsive, with results end-users can see immediately. By simply using Terracotta for Hibernate as a second-level cache, applications often see throughput boosts of ten times and database load reductions of 30-90 percent. These performance gains occur along with Terracotta`s guarantee that all the data in the cache is highly available and up-to-date across servers. This ensures applications function seamlessly without sacrificing data integrity. "Terracotta 3.1 fills a long-standing gap in object-relational mapping technology, one that has driven unnecessarily high database spending for a few years," said Ari Zilka, chief technology officer and co-founder of Terracotta. "Hibernate combined with Terracotta gives developers the development simplicity they sought in ORMs in the first place, with the high throughput their customers demand, along with less tuning hassle, all for dramatically lower cost." By managing frequently-accessed data in Terracotta, Hibernate users no longer need to provision databases for peak load, or purchase expensive database clustering features, and as a result can drive large cost savings for their organizations while delivering a higher quality of service to their end users. Terracotta for Hibernate capabilities in Terracotta 3.1 include: * High Performance, Coherent Distributed Cache- Increase application capacity by ten times by reducing database load from 30-90 percent; * Unmatched Workload Visualization- Terracotta for Hibernate`s dashboard is the only product that provides a cluster-wide view of all Hibernate activity, showing you at a glance how much load is taken off your database. Get individual server statistics, as well as aggregate cluster-wide views of key Hibernate and cache statistics; * Hibernate Optimized for Clustered Operation- Terracotta for Hibernate uses the Terracotta scalability platform to optimize Hibernate in the context of a cluster of application servers; * Runtime Configuration and Control-Developers and operators gain runtime control over critical cache settings like per region cacheability and time-to-live (TTL) and time-to-idle (TTI) parameters; and * Broad Container Support - Terracotta 3.1 supports a wide array of Java containers, including Apache Tomcat, Oracle Weblogic, Jetty, JBoss and Sun Glassfish. This latest release is a major step in addressing the common cost and performance concerns associated with databases. Terracotta 3.1 also protects customers` existing investment in database infrastructure by making it easier to be more selective about what data should be placed in a database and what data is better managed within Terracotta.
