Oracle to acquire Tangosol caching

Oracle has announced that they are planning to purchase the 30 employee company "Tangosol" a RAM caching product that facilitates the concept of "extreme transaction processing", a new component of the Oracle "Fusion Middleware" effort.

Internally, Tangosol is just a Java "clustered cache" platform, sharing data between nodes in a cluster via a RAM cache, essentially a middleware-based distributed RAM cache for frequently-used data.  Tangosol is very similar to the "Times Ten" product which was recently purchased by Oracle, with the exception that Times Ten does not do data distribution.

Tangosol offers a "Coherence Data Grid" (licensed for  $20k), that claims to increase distributed application performance by providing fast, distributed access to frequently used data, in a similar fashion as geographically distributed RAC clusters, but at the middleware level.

In todays world of service-oriented acronyms like SOAP (service oriented access protocol) we now see Tangosol fitting the new "Information-as-a-Service" (IaaS) model.  This "data as a service" model is the age-old object-oriented concept of encapsulating methods with data.
