WebSphere eXtreme Scale is an elastic, scalable, in-memory data grid designed to enable you to handle the exponential growth of transactions for everything from web commerce, to real-time financial interactions, to online social networking and gaming.


The data grid dynamically caches, partitions, replicates, and manages application data and business logic across multiple servers. WebSphere eXtreme Scale can perform massive volumes of transaction processing with high efficiency and linear scalability. With WebSphere eXtreme Scale, you can also get qualities of service such as transactional integrity, high availability, and predictable response times.


WebSphere eXtreme Scale can be used in different ways. You can use the product as a powerful cache, as an in-memory database processing space to manage application state, or to build eXtreme Transaction Processing (XTP) applications. These XTP capabilities include an application infrastructure to support your most demanding business-critical applications.


IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale delivers simple cache for enterprise applications that running on WebSphere Application Server that offers near linear scalability to a broad variety of business applications with minimal invasive changes. This can help you meet the growing needs of your business.
