Webinars for Developers

GridGain® webinars present information on a variety of in-memory computing topics, and are often co-hosted with other in-memory computing customers or thought leaders. Topics include in-depth analyses and recommendations for common issues faced by in-memory computing developers, enterprise architects, CIO/CTOs, and other enterprise decision-makers. Different approaches for implementing solutions are reviewed, including solutions using the GridGain in-memory computing platform and Apache® Ignite. The webinars cover enterprise use cases such as high-frequency trading, omnichannel customer engagement, the Internet of Things (IoT), financial services, application performance and scaling, fast data, and more.

All GridGain webinars are archived and available for free online.

Apache Ignite can scale horizontally to accommodate the data that your applications and services generate. However, in practice, most of us cannot scale out a cluster instantly.
Presented by Denis Magda
Serverless computing allows you to design and build scalable cloud-native applications without thinking about infrastructure provisioning and orchestration. With Apache Ignite, you can bootstrap an in-memory cluster in the cloud and access data 100-1000x faster than with disk-based databases.
Presented by Glenn Wiebe
Apache Ignite and GridGain can be used as a simple cache, an in-memory data grid (IMDG), and as an in-memory database (IMDB). These data management patterns can be combined with Ignite integration facilities to function as a Digital Integration Hub (DIH) for real-time data access across data sources and applications. Common uses for the DIH architecture include:
Presented by Greg Stachnick
Debugging distributed-system applications can be more complex than debugging traditional monolithic applications. As API calls jump across nodes in the cluster, it can be tricky to follow the execution just by analyzing application logs. Tracing adds a useful tool to the root-cause-analysis toolbox.
Presented by Stanislav Lukyanov
Networking is a core pillar of any distributed system and is responsible for cluster-node discovery procedures, peer-to-peer communication between nodes, and failure handling. Network architecture can greatly influence operational performance and efficiency.
Presented by Valentin Kulichenko
Apache Ignite is an excellent tool for external RDBMS, NoSQL or Hadoop database acceleration and offloading. The Ignite in-memory computing platform can power real-time applications that need to process terabytes of data with in-memory speed. Join us for this webinar to learn about the various Ignite deployment options for database acceleration including:

Join us for a special webinar presented by Branimir Angelov, Co-Founder and CTO of Kubo, Software Architecture Consultant in Obecto, and Member of the Comrade Cooperative.
Presented by Ken Cottrell
Many machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) platforms are slow in production environments. It can sometimes take hours or days to update ML models. This is a result of having the ML processing run on a different system from the operational transactions system in order to avoid a performance degradation.
Presented by Glenn Wiebe
In this webinar, Glenn Wiebe, GridGain Solution Architect, will introduce developers to Apache Ignite as an in-memory database (IMDB). He will review how an IMDB differs from a cache or an in-memory data grid (IMDG). He will discuss the key characteristics of an IMDB and also highlight core Ignite features and facilities.
Presented by Denis Magda
Join Denis Magda, Apache Ignite veteran and GridGain Head of Developer Relations, as he demonstrates various Apache Ignite capabilities you might have heard of or read about. Topics covered will include clustering, compute and SQL capabilities, data loading and streaming.
Presented by Greg Stachnick
Managing distributed systems can be complex and time consuming because there are numerous moving parts. Having a consistent set of tools can give a clear picture of how clusters are performing, when to take action and avoid potential problems, and how to optimize configurations.
Mythili Venkatakrishnan, IBM Distinguished Engineer, will discuss increasing market pressures in key industries such as banking which are leading Z platform users to leverage Digital Integration Hubs for flexible information flow between core transactional systems and hybrid cloud environments.
Presented by Ivan Rakov
The Apache Ignite transactional engine can execute distributed ACID transactions which span multiple nodes, data partitions, and caches/tables. This key-value API differs slightly from traditional SQL-based transactions but its reliability and flexibility lets you achieve an optimal balance between consistency and performance at scale by following several guidelines.
Apache Ignite’s ANSI-99 SQL support provides application developers a classical SQL database experience while enabling in-memory speeds at petabyte scale for a variety of workloads. Concise SQL syntax and availability of JDBC and ODBC drivers shields the complexity of Ignite’s distributed architecture from developers and allows them to easily manage and query distributed…
Presented by Konstantin Orlov
When working with multiple data centers, it is important to ensure high availability of your GridGain cluster. The GridGain Enterprise and Ultimate Editions, built on Apache Ignite®, include a Data Center Replication feature that allows data transfer between caches in distinct topologies, even located in different geographic locations.
Presented by Ivan Rakov
Apache Ignite can function in a strong consistency mode which keeps application records in sync across all primary and backup replicas. It also supports distributed ACID transactions that allow you to update multiple entries stored on different cluster nodes and in various caches/tables.
Presented by Denis Magda
Apache Ignite 2.8 includes over 1,900 upgrades and fixes that enhance almost all components of the platform. The release notes include hundreds of line items cataloging the improvements. In this webinar Ignite community members demonstrate and dissect new capabilities related to production maintenance, monitoring, and machine learning including:
