Launch a Test Environment for Apache Ignite as an In-Memory Database with Just a Few Mouse Clicks
FOSTER CITY, Calif. – January 10, 2019 – GridGain® Systems, provider of enterprise-grade in-memory computing solutions based on Apache® Ignite™, today announced that GridGain Cloud, an in-memory-computing-platform-as-a-service (imcPaaS) solution, now includes automatic disk-based persistence of the in-memory operational dataset which ensures immediate data access if a cluster restart is ever required. Anyone interested in testing Apache Ignite as an in-memory database (IMDB) can now launch a free 4-node trial environment with just a few mouse clicks. The trial enables users to quickly and easily launch a hosted Apache Ignite in-memory database and use ANSI-99 SQL or a variety of other protocols to communicate with the cluster. GridGain Cloud is the first ACID-compliant, key-value in-memory database with ANSI-99 SQL support.
GridGain Cloud, a fully managed service that can be launched with just a few mouse clicks, delivers in-memory speed by maintaining all data in memory. GridGain Cloud offers unlimited horizontal scalability by distributing data across a distributed cluster of servers. New nodes can be added to the cluster dynamically. The data held in memory is continually backed up to disk and is available in seconds in the event of a restart. GridGain Cloud supports key-value APIs, interactive SQL with GridGain Cloud Web Console; a unified REST API for SQL and key-value operations; ANSI-99 SQL using Apache Ignite or GridGain ODBC/JDBC drivers; and Apache Ignite or GridGain thin clients for Java, .NET, C++, Python, Node.JS, PHP and other languages.
“Modern organizations need unprecedented levels of speed and scalability to support their digital transformation, omnichannel customer experience and artificial intelligence initiatives. The GridGain in-memory computing platform is quickly proving to be the most cost-effective and mature approach to achieving these goals and GridGain Cloud now shortens the learning curve to near zero,” said Nikita Ivanov, CTO of GridGain Systems.
