In-Memory Computing for Logistics and Transportation

Logistics and transportation applications are dealing with the rapid growth of data as sensors, people and and systems increasingly send more and more data for consideration. Adding the GridGain® in-memory computing platform to a logistics or transportation application enables massive scalability to deal with the growth in data as well as a 1,000x improvement in processing speeds as data moves from disk to RAM. GridGain enables extremely high performance for organizations dealing with massive amounts of location-based data.

GridGain provides in-memory speed and massive scalability for transactional, analytical and hybrid transactional/analytical processing applications. GridGain is solid and proven technology that delivers predictable latency, flexible scaling, configurable data consistency and reliable uptime. GridGain can run on commodity hardware, virtual machines or cloud providers. GridGain is built on the open source Apache® Ignite project code base.
