IoT Database Acceleration Using Real-Time HTAP Performance

GridGain® can be used in Internet of Things (IoT) use cases for IoT database acceleration of common relational databases. IoT applications are characterized by high volumes of incoming data which must be processed, analyzed and acted upon in real-time, especially for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use cases. Hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) solutions can address the need for both a high data ingestion rate and real-time speed . These solutions typically rely on database scalability so they can scale out as data volumes grow. Companies can evolve their existing RDBMS by deploying IoT database acceleration strategies using in-memory computing which can deliver real-time OLTP and OLAP performance using the operational data set.

IoT Database Acceleration and In-Memory Computing

The GridGain in-memory computing platform is deployed for IoT database acceleration between existing application and data layers. GridGain supports ACID transactions and distributed ANSI-99 SQL including DDL and DML. GridGain can enable RDBMSs to function as in-memory HTAP databases which are extremely fast and can be easily scaled by adding more nodes to the GridGain cluster.

Database Acceleration
HTAP supports OLTP and OLAP processing on the operational data set, significantly reducing system complexity and cost

Built on Apache® Ignite™, GridGain has native support for Apache® Kafka as well as integrations for many other commonly used solutions. GridGain supports fast data ingest which makes it ideal as an IoT database acceleration solution for applications such as smart power grids, self-driving cars, connected buildings, or any IoT use case which generates large quantities of real-time data that requires immediate analysis to drive real-time action. When deployed as an in-memory database, GridGain can function as an IoT database without requiring an underlying RDBMS.

Leading IoT platform vendors incorporate GridGain into their architecture to create IoT solutions which can deliver the performance and scalability their customers demand. GridGain is already used in IoT platforms which ingest and process data from millions of sensors in real-time.
