In-Memory Computing for eCommerce

Incorporating the GridGain® in-memory computing platform into an eCommerce website can result in dramatic improvements in speed and scalability. Leading eCommerce companies leverage GridGain to add in-memory computing to their online retail stores. Users demand responsive performance under all conditions. The infrastructure that drives many eCommerce web sites and mobile apps struggles to maintain performance as the amount of data processed grows exponentially. Ensuring a responsive end user experience for eCommerce companies increasingly depends upon adding in-memory computing capabilities to this infrastructure.

GridGain offers in-memory speed and massive scalability for a variety of transactional, analytical and hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) eCommerce use cases running on top of any data store. GridGain is mature, proven technology that delivers flexible scaling, predictable latency, configurable data consistency and reliable uptime. The GridGain in-memory computing platform can run on commodity hardware, virtual machines or cloud providers. Built on Apache® Ignite, GridGain is an affordable addition for many eCommerce platforms.

One way to evolve eCommerce technology is to make it as fast, available, and scalable as possible. This white paper discusses how an in-memory computing platform can accomplish this, while both providing competitive advantage and addressing the issues that eCommerce developers face.
This white paper covers the architecture, key capabilities, and features of GridGain®, as well as its key integrations for leading RDBMSs, Apache Spark™, Apache Cassandra™, MongoDB® and Apache Hadoop™. It describes how GridGain adds speed and unlimited horizontal scalability to existing or new OLTP or OLAP applications, HTAP applications, streaming analytics, and continuous learning use cases for machine or deep learning.

If your eCommerce initiatives are struggling to keep up with customer demand, then in-memory computing may be the solution you need to take performance and scale to the next level. Yesterday’s application and data architectures cannot achieve the speed and scale offered by in-memory computing. In addition, in-memory computing is more efficient than disk-based systems and can frequently be used to drive infrastructure consolidation projects and decrease costs.
