What's New in GigaSpaces Version 16.2

Release Date: October-13-2022

This section describes product changes, along with new features and functionality for GigaSpaces release 16.2.


Data Pipeline/Data Integration Enhancements

  • Out of the box integration logic and generic data pipelines dramatically shortens time-to-market for new digital services and minimizes service downtime.

    • IBM Infosphere Data Replication (IIDR) is available as an out-of-the-box connector engine for data pipelines.

    • Data pipeline support is enhanced to include DB2 on IBM z/OS mainframe.

    • Generic declarative data loader can load any data based on configuration per data source.

    • Ensure business continuity while changing the data schema (adding tables) and reloading data.


SQL Enhancements


Enhanced Support for Kubernetes

  • Zoned Anti-Affinity ensures that the primary and backup partitions will not run in the same zone.

  • In Kubernetes, namespaces provides a mechanism for isolating groups of resources within a single cluster. Names of resources need to be unique within a namespace, but not across namespaces. We now support deploying to a namespace, as opposed to deploying to the default namespace.


Tiered Storage Enhancements

  • Local transactions are now supported in Tiered Storage.

  • Multiple Criteria Support: Tiered Storage criteria now supports multiple AND/OR expressions.


JDBC Driver Support for Tableau



Third-Party Integration Updates

  • Hibernate has been updated to version 5.6.7.
