In another blow to Israel Startup Nation, Stoa — also known as FlipiOS – is cutting 80 jobs or 80% of its total workforce. However, GigaSpaces is doing well and plans to hand out $14 million in dividends.

Founded in 2000, GigaSpaces calls itself a global pioneer in in-memory computing, building one of the market’s first Digital Integration Hubs – an out-of-the-box solution that simplifies organizations’ digital transformation, enabling them to develop and launch digital services at a rapid pace. The GigaSpaces Smart DIH is part of the company’s Smart suite of products, alongside the award-winning Smart Cache solution.

GigaSpaces spun off its Cloudify, which develops cloud orchestration solutions, into an independent company in 2017. The dividends are being paid out after the company sold Cloudify to Dell.
