In the past few months we've made several exciting announcements, such as our partnership with SpringSource , the expansion of our executive team, the launch of our community site OpenSpaces.org , the OpenSpaces Developer Challenge and the Start-Up Program . But there is nothing like a customer announcement, as in today's press release about GigaSpaces customer Susquehanna International Group (SIG).
Every vendor out there, particularly the smaller ones, knows that it's never easy to get customers to agree to these public endorsements. Ironically, it is even more difficult when your product is viewed as a strategic platform that creates competitive advantage and significant economic benefits. And customers definitely view GigaSpaces as a strategic technology. So it's very gratifying when a customer such as SIG agrees to this. Thank you, folks!
Now while SIG is not exactly a household name, it is a remarkable organization and one of the finest financial institutions in the world. Few companies on the globe deal with the volumes of data and transactions that SIG does. So again, it's exciting when they choose GigaSpaces as a core application server to handle these Extreme Transaction Processing (XTP) volumes.
