Although version 7.0 of the Enterprise version of GigaSpaces XAP contains much more than just DataGrid or Caching, for many customer the need for reduced latency and increased performance as well as contention reduction is pressing and for these customers these needs are often a pre-cursor to their first foray into using GigaSpaces. I recently received a set of slide from the GigaSpaces Deputy CTO, Shay Hassidim, which I though were worth posting as they not only go through some of the use cases for Caching and DataGrid but they also show the topologies and patterns that can be used.
