IBM Elastic Caching Community
WebSphere eXtreme Scale operates as an in-memory grid that dynamically processes, partitions, replicates, and manages application data and business logic across hundreds of servers. It provides transactional integrity and transparent fail-over to ensure high availability, high reliability, and consistent response times. WebSphere eXtreme Scale is an essential distributed caching platform from IBM for elastic scalability and the next-generation cloud environments.
Elastic means the grid monitors and manages itself, allows scale-out and scale-in, and is self-healing by automatically recovering from failures. Scale-out allows memory capacity to be added while the grid is running, without requiring a restart. Conversely, scale-in allows on-the-fly removal of memory capacity.
