"I'm very impressed with the new configuration features; they are very powerful, yet incredibly easy to use. We were able to painlessly upgrade our production applications to the 2.2 release, because Tangosol makes sure that their releases maintain backwards compatibility. We also witnessed an instant increase in performance of over 30% and a decrease in memory utilization of over 50% due to the object serialization optimizations and thread pooling features in this release," said Rick Gibbs, CTO of Dealer.com web systems. "This is in a production application that had already benefited tremendously from the use of Coherence; for example, we reduced some two and three hour jobs down to about two minutes just by taking advantage of Coherence caching features."
"Our goal remains to provide the most reliable, most highly available, and easiest to implement clustered caching and grid computing product," added Cameron Purdy, President of Tangosol. "One look at the simplicity of our powerful new XML-based cache configuration, and it should be obvious that we continue to deliver on that vision. What isn't evident from the feature checklist is the amount of testing and the number of small refinements that help to ensure the real-world reliability of our software."
"We're very pleased with the performance and reliability of the current Coherence 2.1.1 release that we have deployed," said Marty Dow, Chief Architect for Internet Systems at GEICO, "and we're definitely looking forward to seeing some of the new 2.2 capabilities in action."
