Garantia Data Unveils First In-Memory NoSQL Cloud at LaunchPad 2012

SAN FRANCISCO & TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--

GigaOM Structure LaunchPad 2012 - Garantia Data today announced the beta release of the first fully-automated, in-memory NoSQL cloud service offering reliable Memcached and infinitely-scalable Redis data store systems. Garantia Data is one of 11 finalists for the GigaOM Structure LaunchPad competition, which recognizes emerging startups in the cloud computing industry, and will present its new In-Memory NoSQL Cloud on stage at the event today in San Francisco, CA.

Web companies, such as Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, rely on Memcached and Redis to support high-performance and rapid growth. However, Memcached lacks reliability and Redis is limited in scalability - a dataset cannot grow beyond a single Master server. In addition, both require constant operational care. Garantia Data's breakthrough dynamic-auto-sharding technology virtualizes multiple cloud servers into an infinite pool of memory, enabling datasets to scale autonomously and continuously from gigabytes to terabytes and even petabytes based on their actual size. This zero-management service completely frees developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, server lists, configuration, scaling and failure recovery, while guaranteeing absolutely no dat loss.

"We have leveraged sophisticated technology to solve real industry pains," said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data. "Our new in-memory NoSQL cloud reinvents the way people use Memcached and Redis. We offer our customers infinite, continuous and fully automated scalability in a completely hassle-free cloud service. Memcached users enjoy full reliability with absolutely no data loss. Redis users enjoy infinite-scalability without compromising on any of the Redis commands."

"Garantia Data is a true zero-management service," said Adoram Rogel, CTO of Abe's Market, an online reseller of all-natural products. "We connected to the in-memory NoSQL cloud in seconds, and from that moment on we never had to deal with scaling, configuration or failure recovery again."

"Every web-scale application developer that uses distributed memory caching should take a close look at this break-through solution from Garantia Data," said Paul Burns, president of cloud computing industry analyst firm Neovise. "It not only delivers Memcached and Redis capabilities as a cloud service through an API, it makes them reliable and scalable. It also eliminates the time consuming, error-prone administrative processes typically involved in establishing and maintaining private caching deployments."

Price and Availability

The Garantia Data in-memory NoSQL cloud is currently available free of charge to early adopters during the beta phase. When it transitions to general availability later this year, the company will offer a "pay as you go" model, by which instead of paying for full instances, the customer will only pay for actual memory consumption, in an analogous way to metered utilities and at price per-gigabyte similar to those of plain cloud instances.

The Garantia Data in-memory NoSQL cloud is currently available on Amazon Web Services. The company intends to expand its offering to other public clouds later this year.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
