GemFire Enterprise is a high-performance, distributed operational data management infrastructure that resides between clustered application processes and back-end data sources to provide data sharing and event distribution. GemFire cluster pools memory, CPU, network resources, and optionally local disk across multiple processes to manage application objects and behavior. It uses dynamic replication and data partitioning techniques to implement high availability, improved performance, scalability, and fault tolerance. In addition to being a distributed data container, GemFire cluster is an in-memory data management system that provides reliable asynchronous event notifications and guaranteed message delivery.
Due to the simplified architecture of the GemFire cluster and fast accessibility of the applications, GemFire cluster is gaining a rapid foothold among IT giants. As continuous access to the applications is the key in large environments, even the smallest slip in the performance of the GemFire cluster would result in huge losses. To ensure the 24x7 availability of the GemFire cluster and high performance rate, administrators need to closely monitor the performance and status of the GemFire cluster and its associated components, promptly detect abnormalities, and fix them before end-users notice. This is where eG Enterprise helps administrators.
