Oracle Coherence is an in-memory data grid solution that enables organizations to predictably scale mission-critical applications by providing fast and reliable access to frequently used data. Oracle Coherence was originally designed as being a cache, but it has evolved significantly from its caching roots.
Coherence provides replicated and distributed (partitioned) data management and caching services on top of a reliable, highly scalable peer-to-peer clustering protocol. By automatically and dynamically partitioning data, Oracle Coherence ensures continuous data availability, even in the event of a server failure. Coherence has no single points of failure; it automatically and transparently fails over and redistributes its clustered data management services when a server becomes unavailable.[Read More]
