Red Hat today announced JBoss Enterprise Data Grid 6, which it calls “a cloud-ready, highly scalable distributed data cache.” Cameron Purdy defines a data grid as “a system composed of multiple servers that work together to manage information and related operations – such as computations – in a distributed environment.”
Like Apache Cassandra and Riak, Red Hat’s data grid is influenced by Amazon’s distributed data store Dynamo. The product will cache data in-memory and distribute among multiple servers, which will be useful for cloud computing.
The new product is based on the JBoss community project Infinispan.
