GridGain™ Systems (www.GridGain.com), the leading innovator behind open source and commercial in-memory data fabric solutions that accelerate business operations and time to insights for the enterprise and in the cloud, announced that MercuryGate International, a SaaS TMS technology provider, has selected GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric to increase infrastructure system performance, add horizontal scalability to meet growth demands, and apply new memory management techniques used to build UPS-certified software. GridGain was chosen over solutions from Oracle, Tibco and Hazelcast.
GridGain’s solution is especially beneficial to SaaS providers like MercuryGate, which needed to meet rigorous demands of managing and delivering millions of files per week to its thousands of transportation trading partners including global shippers, brokers, freighters and third-party logistics companies, while minimizing JVM garbage collection and overall Java object creation. GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric improves database response performance and adds vertical scalability to its infrastructure. The GridGain solution also supported MercuryGate in the process of achieving UPS Certification.
In addition to solving performance and scalability challenges, with GridGain deployed, the MercuryGate sales team can now market new, fast-response-time service offerings to SaaS customers, realizing an immediate return on its investment. Using GridGain Visor, MercuryGate is able to identify customers who are faced with long wait times and offer them a premium service, which can eliminate the delays that are such a risk to business.
“The most impressive benefit is the performance boost and all-important wait time reduction. Finding the combination of cache and compute in a grid is powerful — some solutions offer one or the other, but only GridGain offers both,” said Brian Armieri, Chief Technology Officer, MercuryGate. “GridGain has not only solved our performance challenge, but it has provided us with a way to sell a premium service, which results in an added revenue stream. It’s a significant return on our investment.”
“MercuryGate’s clients achieve higher customer stickiness and satisfaction due to shorter system wait times, which results in better business and more references,” said Abe Kleinfeld, President and CEO of GridGain. “For SaaS vendors, the performance boost and dramatic scalability gain of their services enabled by the GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric are key to the growth of their business. But more often than not, as is the case with MercuryGate, GridGain’s award-winning products have the potential to unlock additional revenue stream opportunities and generate an immediate return of investment, by allowing our customers to quickly offer a premium service.”
