April 9 ,2012 – Tibco says it now is able to feed communications from social media and event streams into “big data” storage systems, in real time.

In the version 2.0 release of its Tibco ActiveSpaces, released Monday, users will be able to mine real-time digital, social and event streams in “big data” environments, according to the supplier of event-driven data software. Tibco developed the latest version using “shared nothing persistence” architecture, which stores data either in-memory or on disk without requiring a central server.

Ten servers running the new platform will be faster than a single server running it “whether you're storing the data in memory or on disk,’’ according to the company’s chief technology officer, Matt Quinn.

According to the company: "Since data can be accessed without the typical bottleneck, companies can quickly scale their analysis by adding more servers to the data grid, which scales 1:1 for more data and faster access with every server added. And because the architecture provides persistent storage, customers can shut all their machines down and restart them without losing data access— a significant challenge for most in-memory systems."

The software can run within .Net, OSX and AIX programming architectures.
