You’ve already heard or read me talk plenty about OpenSpaces and Space Based Architecture, and how both can be used to scale out your application.
Well, here is a testimonial from Srini Penchikala who just gave it a try and, dare I say, “got hooked”:
I have been trying GigaSpaces on my local computer
to learn more about
the framework. It’s a great implementation that supports
simple design and
a scalable and performant solution. Integration with Spring
GigaSpaces even more powerful.
You and your team have
created a great product.
Thanks, Srini! Also, check out these other customer and partner testimonials that were posted as responses on LinkedIn Answers.
Now it’s your turn to give it a try, and what’s a better time than holiday season:). We recently launched a developer contest where you can develop an OpenSpaces plug-in, extension or application, and compete for the $10,000 grand prize (and a total of $25,000 in prizes). And you better hurry, because if you submit your concept by January 29, 2008, you get into the Early-Bird Draw (which gives you additional prizes).
If you’re interested in some ideas for your contest submission, check out the list of projects that are in the pipeline on our NEW community website – OpenSpaces.org, such as a scalable search engine based on Compass and Lucene, REST support, AJAX Browser, SLA Driven .Net Application, Google-like MapReduce, Testing On-Demand on Amazon EC2 and more. The full list is available here. Can you come up with something better?
