Harpoon Technologies Open Source Experts to Provide Consulting

ST. LOUIS – (October 5, 2007) – Harpoon Technologies, provider of open source consulting services, and Terracotta, a leader in infrastructure software for enterprise Java high availability and scalability, today announced a partnership to respond to growing demand for help implementing Terracotta clustering

Terracotta offers IT organizations a lightweight approach to scalability that lowers costs and simplifies deployment by reducing development effort and easing the load on application servers and databases. Terracotta uses high-performance mapping of server memory changes, called Network-Attached Memory, to share temporary “work-in-progress” data among servers. That makes an application highly available without placing such temporary data in an expensive relational database. It also provides dramatic cost savings and much higher performance and scalability than either databases or application-tier caches.
