Meetup: In-Memory in Manhattan!
Akmal Chaudhri (@akmalchaudhri), GridGain’s technology evangelist, will present at the New York City In-Memory Computing Meetup on January 25 in Manhattan. This event is free -- however, an RSVP is required.
Akmal’s talk is titled, “Building consistent and highly available distributed systems with Apache Ignite and GridGain.”
Summary: It is well known that there is a tradeoff between data consistency and high availability. However, there are many applications that require very strong consistency guarantees, and making such applications highly available can be a significant challenge.
In this session, attendees will be given an overview of Apache Ignite and GridGain capabilities that allow the delivery of high availability, while not breaking data consistency. Specific guidelines will be presented on how to build such systems covering topics such as:
• In-memory backups.
• Data persistence.
• Data center replication.
• Full and incremental snapshots.
At the end of this session, attendees will have better understanding of how Apache Ignite and GridGain work, and how to use different features of these products to build applications that are both consistent and highly available.
Location: 3 Columbus Circle · New York.
