In his talk, Akmal will introduce the many components of the open-source Apache Ignite. You will learn how to solve some of the most demanding scalability and performance challenges. Akmal will also cover a few typical use cases and work through some code examples. Hope to see you there so you can leave ready to fire up your database deployments!
Apache Ignite was developed predominantly in Java and provides native support for other languages. It is designed to deliver uncompromised performance for a wide set of in-memory computing use cases - from high performance computing, to the industry most advanced data grid, CEP, and data streaming.
Apache Ignite is a memory-centric platform that combines a distributed SQL database with a Key-Value Data Grid that is ACID-compliant and horizontally scalable. It enables high-performance transactions, real-time streaming, and fast analytics in a single, comprehensive data access and processing layer.
