Guarantee a smooth, consistent customer experience, regardless of the amount of traffic on your site with an always-on infrastructure that will scale to your needs. 

• Dynamic provisioning for fluctuating loads 
• High performance for latency-sensitive 
• Continuous uptime/high availability through    
   automatic failover and self-healing 
• Cost effective resource utilization & 
   standardized management tools 




XAP enables your app to run entirely on a single platform with all the tiers collapsed into one container. The platform gives you fast data access by storing ALL your data in-memory, ensuring high availability and scaling your app automatically and on-demand. 
End-to-end elasticity enables all system components to scale as resource requirements increase.

During periods of peak load or through seasons of increased traffic, XAP dynamically expands your application onto additional physical resources – automatically and on-demand, to meet any SLA. Resiliency is guaranteed by in-memory backup within each container, and by mirroring data to a traditional database outside the runtime. 



Accommodating high volumes of traffic, engaging customers across many channels, avoiding sluggish response times, and improving conversion rates, all while reducing costs – sounds like a tall order?
