SAN FRANCISCO, CA — July 8, 2013
Terracotta, the award winning provider of in-memory technologies for enterprise big data, unveiled new versions of BigMemory 4, its flagship product for managing big, fast data, and Web Sessions 4, the leading solution for distributed in-memory session management. The new offerings work together to bring faster, more reliable access to session data in large-scale, high-traffic web applications. By tapping BigMemory 4's Automatic Resource Control™, Web Sessions 4 ensures that data is always where it's needed to grant instant access to up to hundreds of terabytes of session data. BigMemory 4 offers 60 percent faster data access than previous versions at terabyte scale and beyond, and delivers enterprise-grade levels of reliability and flexibility that were formerly available only in traditional, disk-based data management systems.
“Slow performance on any commerce site is a business killer,” said Mike Allen, vice president of Product Management for Terracotta. “If a customer has to wait for their shopping cart to load, or to complete check out, there is a high probability of losing the sale. Terracotta Web Sessions and Terracotta BigMemory work together to eliminate performance bottlenecks, even with terabytes of web session data.”

The latest releases of BigMemory and Web Sessions speed enterprise-grade Web session management, allowing high-traffic web sites to enjoy distributed in-memory session management for extremely high performance and availability at scale. Because application servers are not always optimized to handle very large volumes of in-memory session data in a highly available, scalable way, access to session data shared across application servers often becomes a performance bottleneck for enterprise system architects and software developers. With the latest versions of Web Sessions and BigMemory, developers and architects can deliver fast, reliable access to Web session data, including shopping carts, user behavior and cookies.
Working together, Web Sessions 4 and BigMemory 4 deliver:
Powering Terracotta and Software AG Products

As a result, enterprises can significantly reduce risk, automate business processes and rapidly deploy new offers, products and services, all in real time. BigMemory is also the in-memory data platform for webMethods 9.0 from Software AG, introduced earlier this year.

We wanted to improve the stability of our web servers and our capacity to handle more partner activity as it was severely constrained. I needed the problem to go away. With Terracotta's Enterprise Suite, it did.Andre Zardini, CIO, Rewards Network
