FOSTER CITY, Calif. – Apr. 9, 2020 – GridGain® Systems, provider of enterprise-grade in-memory computing solutions based on Apache Ignite®, today announced it is ranked #101 on the inaugural The Financial Times The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2020 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies across the Americas.

The GridGain in-memory computing platform solves two types of challenges created by digital transformations. It enables companies to speed up and massively scale out existing applications with no rip-and-replace of the existing database. It can also power a high-performance data access layer – known as a digital integration hub – which makes data from multiple siloed datastores and streaming data sources available to one or many applications to drive real-time business processes. GridGain can function as an in-memory data grid or as an in-memory database and supports data processing APIs such as ANSI-99 SQL, key-value, compute, machine learning and more and supports ACID transactions. Built on a memory-centric architecture that can leverage ongoing advancements in memory and storage technologies, the solution allows companies to future-proof their applications. GridGain is based on the open source Apache Ignite project and can be deployed on public or private clouds, on-premises, or on hybrid environments.

The Financial Times award joins an array of recent honors earned by GridGain, including:
