If you are building a simple web application and want to bypass all of the basic building blocks (authentication & authorization, multi-tenant, etc, etc.), then ABP Commercial will allow you to do this very quickly with their tooling. It is also an excellent tool if you are building a large complicated SAAS product, as long as you are willing to invest the time required to understand the 'why' behind their architectural decisions and follow their methods throughout your development.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces is only suited in the company where Tibco suites have been already used, the license cost is not a concern, it is only required for data caching purposes and only works in the client/server mode for middle-sizes of data. If the expectation is data cache + distributed computation or embedded IMDG is also one requirement or the data cluster needs span multiple data centers, other light-weight OpenSource IMDG solutions should be considered
Read full review Pros Documentation Premium theme Basic modules Read full review Tibco ActiveSpaces is an excellent caching tool. With good design, we can haven a efficient cache layer, that can respond to business needs in sub-seconds (milliseconds) rather than seconds / minutes to respond. This is specially useful for improving the efficiency of the services used in customer interactions.. like login, serving billing information, serving the customer's service usage and any other information customer is interested in accessing frequently. System process can also use the ActiveSpaces . By caching the information frequently used by the system processes, the data cab be accessed more frequently. And without much disruptions. If you are already using TIBCO tools, then ActiveSpaces is the right choice to use, as the product is well integrated with all the TIBCO Suite of products. ActiveSpaces integrates well with most common products like TIBCO BusinessWorks, TIBCO BusinessEvents etc. ActiveSpaces can be easily deployed to a target (TIBCO) environment, with very little additional effort. Although there is an effort required to deploy them. ActiveSpaces is supported by TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.13 and TIBCO BusinessWorks 6.x. Hence you are not forced to use any version of TIBCO BW, just because you have to use TIBCO ActiveSpaces. Read full review Cons More modules are always welcomed Read full review TIBCO ActiveSpaces Tuple-based data structure is not flexible enough to support customized native data objects. There is no secondary index option. Doesn't provide "predicate based In-Grid distributed search and result aggregation." only can be used as data cache, the node's only contribute memory but can not use the data partition owner node's computation power to apply the distributed computation customized by the user. Cross data center replication (geographically) is a pain. Encounter the performance issue when the data volume is huge, even according to the architecture design, linear scaling up should not have that issue. Read full review Alternatives Considered
One biggest advantage of the Tibco ActiveSpaces is it's ease of integration with the TIBCO suite of products. Hence it is more suitable to TIBCO AS in conjunction with the TIBCO suite of products. All products could offer the same or different level of advantages. For the enterprises that are already using the AWS, then they will prefer to go for
. Oracle In-Memory Cache might have the same level of advantage but the if you are already using the TIBCO suite of products like the BusinessWorks, then TIBCO ActiveSpaces seems to be the right option since there is an out of box plugin available for TIBCO AS and it is compatible with TIBCO products. Otherwise, lots of custom coding is required to use the Oracle or Amazon products as these plugins are not readily available and supported by TIBCO BW.
Read full review Return on Investment We have a small team, and ABP Commercial has allowed us to build a SAAS application that is feature-rich in much less time than if we built everything from scratch. ABP Commercial continues to provide benefits with every update. Keeping current on new versions of dependencies (such as .NET) requires a fraction of the work on our end since ABP Commercial updates the base framework and we can leverage that work. This was a HUGE benefit when IdentityServer4 changed from Open Source to a very expensive commercial license.
