Terracotta and Grid Dynamics Partner to Simplify Scale-Out of Mission-Critical Applications

Partnership Addresses Growing Demand for Solutions Built on Terracotta Platform

FREMONT, CA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 23, 2009) - Grid Dynamics, the global leader in scaling mission-critical systems, today announced its partnership with Terracotta, Inc., a recognized leader in infrastructure software for enterprise Java scalability. The strategic partnership matches Grid Dynamics' leading consulting practices and expertise with Terracotta's leading open source software to meet customer demand for architecting, developing and deploying mission-critical applications on affordable and scalable Java infrastructures.

"Grid Dynamics has an impressive record in application design and migration services, making it a strong strategic partner for Terracotta," said Amit Pandey, CEO of Terracotta. "The growing ranks of customers who are integrating their applications with Terracotta will benefit greatly from this partnership, as it combines Grid Dynamics' expertise with Terracotta's market-leading scalability, performance and cost-saving benefits."

Terracotta significantly lowers the operational and capital costs required to support applications where reliability and scalability are key concerns, including those built with popular open source frameworks like Spring and Hibernate. By managing frequently-accessed data in Terracotta, customers no longer need to provision databases for peak load and as a result, can drive large cost savings for their organizations while delivering a higher quality of service to their end users.

Grid Dynamics is the global leader in scaling mission-critical systems, helping customers deliver business systems that handle peak loads, scale on demand and always stay up. It enables its customers to turn monolithic applications into scalable services and static, under-utilized server clusters into virtualized compute clouds. Grid Dynamics has deep expertise in Java, key middleware technologies and products, and is at the forefront of Grid and Cloud computing and emerging platforms.

"We are excited to announce two key service offerings for Terracotta customers," said Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Grid Dynamics. "As we work with mission-critical applications, we find that customers are looking for alternatives to non-scalable legacy application servers and relief of database bottlenecks. Terracotta fits very nicely into our portfolio of solutions."

Specific services Grid Dynamics will provide for Terracotta's customers include:

--  Technology Assessment - Right-start offering for companies who are
    evaluating a potential technology migration to Java infrastructure,
    including Terracotta;
--  Scale 101 - Four-week engagement designed for customers who are
    already planning a migration and would like consulting and engineering
    services to address key milestones for a successful project.
