October 6, 2008 - Terracotta announced the latest version of its open source Java clustering solution, Terracotta version 2.7.


The new version builds on the growing adoption of Terracotta in specific vertical markets and applications, such as reservation systems, online gaming and information portals. In addition, it offers extended support for the Spring framework and Glassfish application server and delivers enhanced scalability, performance and operational visibility.


By reducing development time and the number of application servers and databases required to support Java infrastructures, Terracotta lowers the operational and capital costs required to support highly available and scalable Web applications.


Terracotta offers the performance of local memory with the high availability of a database, eliminating the unyielding performance and reliability tradeoffs that constrain many Java applications .


New capabilities within Terracotta version 2.7 include:


  • Enhanced platform support,
  • Certified patch process,
  • Automated high availability mode,
  • Improved distributed garbage collector (DGC) performance and visibility,
  • Online (hot) backup support,
  • TIM update center and
  • Cluster-wide runtime statistics.
