Terracotta purchases privately-held Ehcache

Aims to offer an expanded array of products for enterprise Java application performance

By CBR Staff Writer

Terracotta has acquired privately-held Ehcache. Ehcache is the Java caching product and ships as a component within many other Java products, including Hibernate ORM, Spring Framework, Alfresco CMS and Liferay portal.

The company claimed that the caching technology of Ehcache combined with the data integrity features of Terracotta will give enterprises the data management tools they need to scale their applications.

Enterprises are reportedly struggling with application scalability issues, and although cloud computing answers some of these challenges, the applications in the cloud are still coupled to a data layer that does not scale.

The combination of Terracotta and Ehcache enables enterprises to scale both their applications and data to realise the ‘true value’ of cloud infrastructures, the company said.

Terracotta plans to retain availability of Ehcache as an open source product under the Apache 2 license. Planned integration of the products in the near term will focus on enabling Ehcache users to add enterprise availability, reliability, and data integrity capabilities through the Terracotta Server Array.

Greg Luck, founder of Ehcache, said: “Ehcache’s proven deployment track record combined with the enterprise scalability of Terracotta creates a new caching powerhouse.

“Both the Ehcache and Terracotta communities will benefit. The Ehcache community will get accelerated development of new Ehcache features which will provide a comprehensive, standards-based caching solution for existing and upcoming performance challenges. Terracotta community members will have a seamless, single-vendor experience with easy access to a rich and robust caching solution that scales with their businesses.”
