GigaSpaces receives Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification

13 May 2019

GigaSpaces announced that InsightEdge In-Memory Computing Platform has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification. OpenShift Certification can facilitate agile development, deployment and lifecycle management of InsightEdge applications in the cloud, on-premise, and hybrid environments. 

Based on Kubernetes container cluster management, OpenShift combines standardised application management, agile development methods, and hybrid cloud infrastructure to enable organisations to modernise application architectures toward microservices and develop applications that can drive business innovation faster

InsightEdge customers can download the Operator from the Red Hat Container Catalog and benefit from Red Hat OpenShift while developing and deploying time-sensitive applications requiring performance and scale for transactional processing and the acceleration of analytics and machine learning on streaming, hot and historical data to enable faster and smarter insights and actions.

Red Hat OpenShift’s cloud-agnostic support combined with GigaSpaces multi-region and cloud replication module can improve the efficiency of enterprises’ cloud and multi-cloud migration initiatives by helping to optimise bandwidth and reduce data transfer costs between regions and cloud providers. 

Data is replicated and more efficiently leverages predefined filters to replicate the desired data changes, custom aggregations and compression.  Encryption and anonymisation of the data in transit helps support privacy regulations such as GDPR.

GigaSpaces product VP Yoav Einav says, “Obtaining real-time insights and acting on them within a critical time frame, at scale across an environment is a challenge for many enterprises.

“The certification of GigaSpaces InsightEdge operator helps to simplify and accelerate our customers’ cloud journey with tools to develop and deploy services and applications on hybrid cloud and on-premise.”

Red Hat senior director Mike Werner says, “This week, Red Hat brings a certified and supported container operator ecosystem, designed to make advances in open innovation accessible and consumable for the hybrid cloud.

“A critical piece of this ecosystem is providing our partners with tools and technologies to deliver safer and more secure and reliable containerised applications to end users, a component that GigaSpaces has embraced with Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification.”

"We’re pleased to welcome GigaSpaces to this ecosystem, as both part of the Red Hat Connect for Technology Partners program and one of the recent partners to publish a Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operator in the Red Hat Catalog.”
