Wolters Kluwer chooses GigaSpaces XAP with SanDisk ZetaScale software to support data growth and faster processing of mission-critical data

GigaSpaces XAP MemoryXtend with SanDisk ZetaScale software delivers hundreds of terabyte data growth while reducing hardware costs.

GigaSpaces Technologies, a provider of in-memory computing and cloud orchestration technologies, announces that Wolters Kluwer will use XAP MemoryXtend to enable scaling of the growing volume of data processed by its Sentri7® clinical decision support application and to reduce its hardware footprint. GigaSpaces joined forces with SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) to deliver XAP MemoryXtend with SanDisk ZetaScale™ software, to provide customers like Wolters Kluwer Health faster data processing at lower cost.

Sentri7 is a web-based, real-time, decision support application that drives continuous improvement and empowers healthcare organizations to achieve excellence in care delivery. It addresses multiple infection prevention responsibilities, including investigation of HAIs, isolation management, MDRO management and compliance with federal and state reporting requirements. Sentri7 also delivers surveillance, documentation and reporting for antimicrobial stewardship, VTE/anticoagulation, medication management and medication safety.

Sentri7 uses a high performance rules engine combined with an in-memory data grid to deliver real-time data, documentation and reporting. With XAP MemoryXtend, the application is able to process data up to 20 times faster, allowing for peak performance and high scalability to keep information flowing freely.

In June 2014, GigaSpaces and SanDisk announced their joint collaboration on the XAP MemoryXtend solution. XAP MemoryXtend enables customers to store, process and analyze data near the speed of DRAM memory at the cost of flash storage. The solution supports application data growth to hundreds of terabytes using in-memory data grid building blocks. The solution dramatically improves application performance by eliminating expensive database reads, parallelizing storage access and ultimately, reducing the expense associated with using DRAM alone.
