These offerings are the latest additions to the usage-based licensing of ScaleOut’s in-memory products on AWS.
- Enhancements to underlying architecture – Version 5.1 releases major enhancements to the underlying IMDG architecture, including a 5X faster transport for load-balancing data between servers and a new implementation of adaptive heart beating for greater resiliency in virtual server environments.
- SSL support – Version 5.1 also enables the optional use of SSL-based security for client connections and data replication between sites, making it easy to encrypt data moving across networks for enhanced security.
