Abstract

In her talk, Dani will introduce the many components of the open-source Apache Ignite. As Java professionals, you will learn how to solve some of the most demanding scalability and performance challenges. She’ll also cover a few typical use cases and work through some code examples. Attendees will leave ready to fire up their own database deployments! Apache Ignite is an in-memory computing platform that can be inserted seamlessly between a user’s application layer and data layer. Apache Ignite loads data from the existing disk-based storage layer into RAM, improving performance orders of magnitude! Users can keep their existing RDBMS in place and deploy Apache Ignite as a layer between it and the application layer. Apache Ignite automatically integrates with Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and other RDBMS installations. Most In-memory databases typically provide only a SQL interface, whereas Ignite supports a wider group of access and processing paradigms in addition to ANSI flavored SQL. Apache Ignite supports key/value stores, SQL access, Computation, streaming, microservice and clustering grids and an increasingly popular Kubernetes integration in a single integrated in-memory computing platform.

Presented by Dani Traphagen

Dani is a solution architect at GridGain Systems. She confesses that she's fascinated by the world of distributed databases and how this technology is shifting a decent chunk of the RBDMS paradigm. Specifically, her interests are in Big Data, Data Science, Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, In Memory Data Grids, Distributed Databases, Data Modeling, Search and data processing/analytics.
