SpaceDeck is an intuitive, streamlined user interface to manage and control the GigaSpaces environment.

Using SpaceDeck, you can define the tools to bring legacy System of Record (SoR) databases into the in-memory data grid that is the core of the GigaSpaces system.


SpaceDeck has the following features:

  • No-code functionality – the environment can be set up and monitored using the user-friendly SpaceDeck screens, eliminating the need for writing or customizing code

  • The ability for you to create and execute low code data services.

  • A full complement of data and system monitoring tools, built into the environment

This version of SpaceDeck does not yet cover all functionality. On Platform Feature Access page explains which of our UIs manage each of our main platform operations. SpaceDeck is initially available as part of our Smart DIH Kubernetes installation.

Who Can Use SpaceDeck?

SpaceDeck can be used by various user types ("personas") as follows:

System Integrators – integrate data from Systems of Record into the Smart DIH, using data pipelines

Data Engineers – study the data unified in a Space using data queries. Integrate data from Systems of Record into the Smart DIH, using data pipelines

System Admins – manage day-to-day operations of the system; inspect and monitor its components
