What Is Ignite?

First things first, GridGain is the enterprise version of Apache Ignite. So, what is Apache Ignite?

Apache Ignite is a memory-centric distributed database, caching, and processing platform for transactional, analytical, and streaming workloads delivering in-memory speeds at petabyte scale. Ignite was open-sourced by GridGain Systems in late 2014 and accepted in the Apache Incubator program that same year.

If that’s all you need, please download and install Apache Ignite right away. You’ll be glad you did.

If you want all that Ignite has to offer, in an easy to install, configure, and use bundle with lots of extras, GridGain is perfect for you.
