October 13, 2008 - GemStone Systems announced the release of GemFire Enterprise 5.7, a core component of its high-performance data fabric. The release adds value to customers that depend on a highly scalable, reliable, on-demand environment and simplifies the approach developers have previously taken to connect to the data fabric.


GemFire Enterprise 5.7 provides simplified server discovery and automatic load balancing to give customers enhanced business continuity and consistent response time, regardless of clients' load. Scalable client subscriptions guarantee data and event delivery, and network resiliency is increased by the quick detection and recovery from network failures or unresponsive servers in a distributed system.  In addition, the GFMon monitoring tool has been enhanced to simplify data collection and allow customized data charts for administrators.


Additionally, GemFire Enterprise 5.7 boosts the performance of the retrieval of data that is portioned across distributed systems by 50 to 100 percent – a great benefit to enterprises that are facing the challenges of increasing data volume and data transactions, and that are using disparate sources of data managed by different applications. 


GemFire Enterprise 5.7 is currently available; its new features include:


  • Simplified server discovery and automatic load balancing,
  • Server grouping,
  • Enhanced monitoring tool,
  • Scalable client subscriptions,
  • Network resiliency and
  • Performance enhancements.
