The GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform

The GridGain in-memory computing platform provides in-memory speed and massive scalability for data-intensive applications. It can power a digital integration hub (or smart operational datastore, smart data hub or API platform) for building highly performant applications that aggregate and process defined subsets of data from multiple on-premises and cloud-based systems, including data warehouses, data lakes, on-premises business applications, SaaS applications and streaming data feeds. GridGain also enables hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) to run pre-defined analytics on operational databases without impacting system performance. GridGain solutions require no rip-and-replace of existing databases and can be deployed on-premises, on a public or private cloud, or in a hybrid environment. GridGain can also function as a full-featured, standalone in-memory database or as a multi-tier computing environment that spans in-memory and disk-based data, allowing users to make a tradeoff between application performance and infrastructure cost. Based on the open source Apache Ignite project, GridGain offers up to a 1,000x improvement in performance versus disk-based databases when used as an in-memory data grid or in-memory database. GridGain supports data processing APIs such as ANSI-99 SQL, key-value, compute, machine learning and more, and supports ACID transactions – all at in-memory speeds.
