About the OpenSpaces Framework

OpenSpaces is an open source initiative from GigaSpaces, designed to enable scaling out of stateful applications in a simple way using Spring. It is built around GigaSpaces' core product - the eXtreme Application Platform (XAP), which is available free of charge in three forms:

  • Individuals and companies with revenues of less than $5 million may qualify for our Start-Up Program and get the full-blown commercial XAP, free of charge.
  • Individuals and academic institutes working on academic research projects with no commercial or business orientation with the Software may qualify for our Academic Program and get the full-blown commercial XAP, free of charge.
  • Anyone can download a free Community Edition of XAP that provides full functionality, allowing a single hub and an unlimited number of clients with local caches (Master/Local Cache).

More information about the relationship between open source projects on and the GigaSpaces commercial product can be found in our FAQ section.
