Tested & Certified Platforms

This section lists the platforms that are regularly tested by GigaSpaces.

Operating Systems

GigaSpaces products are tested with the following operating systems (32-bit and 64-bit):

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2
  • Linux RHEL 5.x/6.x
  • CentOS 7-7.1
  • Solaris 10

For information on VMWare support, refer to the VMWare guidelines.


SUSE-10 Linux Enterprise Service Pack 3 has bugs that make the OS network layer unreliable. Do not use this operating system with GigaSpaces products.


GigaSpaces products are tested with the following JVMs (32-bit and 64-bit):

  • Oracle 7: XAP was tested using Oracle JVM version 7u45 and above.
  • Oracle 8: XAP was tested using Oracle JVM version 8u25 and above.
  • IBM 1.7.0: XAP was tested using IBM JVM version 1.7.0 SR6.
  • Java 8 and Java 7 (> u79): In these versions, the behavior of the multicast operations regarding IPv6 has changed, and this can cause long initial connection times. To mitigate this issue, add ‘’ to the JVM arguments.
  • Java 9: Not currently supported with this version of InsightEdge and XAP due to changes in the Java platform. Java 9 is planned to be supported in a future release.
