GigaSpaces was originally founded in Israel in 2000, and currently has headquarters in the United States, with offices in both France and the UK. The company originally targeted financial services but has expanded over the years to support other verticals including transportation, retail, e-Commerce, healthcare, telecom and insurance. Whatever the industry, the majority of users deploy GigaSpaces to accelerate analytical and transactional processing at scale for mission-critical and time sensitive applications.
GigaSpaces has a number of partners of various types. Notably, Avaya, Magic Software, NICE Systems, and Amdocs (amongst others) OEM GigaSpaces’ technology. This has resulted in more than 5,000 users of GigaSpaces technologies, either directly or via these partners. Direct users include Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Charles Schwab, Thomson Reuters and many others. HortonWorks/Cloudera, RedHat, Tableau, Informatica and Intel are technology partners. GigaSpaces has been working closely with Intel to leverage that company’s new Optane DC Persistent Memory technology which expands capacity while retaining in-memory performance and dramatically lowering hardware footprint.
