Architects Use GridGain to Accelerate and Scale-Out Applications
Enterprise architects need to speed up and scale out new or existing enterprise applications to drive new digital initiatives. Digital transformation requires a new generation of business applications that ingest, process and analyze data in real-time to drive optimal user experiences. With GridGain, you can create modern, flexible applications built on an in-memory computing platform that can scale with your business needs.
GridGain In-Memory Computing Solutions
GridGain offers enterprise architects the in-memory computing platform software, support, and professional services they need to better achieve real-time digital business goals. The GridGain in-memory computing platform easily integrates with new or existing applications and provides real-time performance and massive scalability.
Built on the open source Apache Ignite project, GridGain is a cost-effective solution for accelerating and massively scaling out new or existing applications, with features and abilities that span a wide variety of use cases and industries.
How GridGain Helps Enterprise Architects
For existing applications, GridGain is typically used as an in-memory data grid between the application and data layer, with no rip-and-replace of the underlying database. For new applications, GridGain is used as an in-memory data grid or an in-memory database. A unified API, including ANSI-99 SQL and ACID transaction support, provides easy integration with existing applications and databases. GridGain can be deployed anywhere including on-premises, on a public or private cloud, or in a hybrid environment.

The white papers, webinars, application notes, product comparisons, and videos below discuss use case considerations from an architectural standpoint.
Capital markets applications often require high performance, massive scalability, and high-performance data access across the enterprise to meet the demands of modern, digital business activities. In addition, digital transformations may require capital markets companies to design architectures that enable multiple business applications to access data from multiple, disparate data sources in real time.
Spread betting offers some compelling advantages, including low entry and transaction costs, preferential tax treatment, and a diverse array of products and options. Traders can bet on any type of event for which there is a measurable outcome that might go in either of two directions – for example, housing prices, the value of a stock-market index, or the difference in the scores of two teams in a sporting event.
This white paper discusses how to accelerate Apache® Cassandra™ and improve Cassandra performance. Apache Cassandra is a popular NoSQL database that does certain things incredibly well. It can be always available, with multi-datacenter replication. It is also scalable and lets users keep their data anywhere. However, Cassandra is lacking in a few key areas – particularly speed. Because it stores data on disk, Cassandra is not fast enough for some of today’s extreme OLTP workloads.
Join this demo, led by Andrey Alexandrov. Andrey guides you through the internal workings of GridGain Nebula, a managed services offering for Apache Ignite and GridGain. Andrey provides a brief overview of the solution's technology stack and architecture. Then, Andrey moves to live examples of how to use GridGain Nebula to accelerate platform deployment and configuration in public clouds. You learn how to do all of the following:
The GridGain Operator for Kubernetes enables you to deploy and manage Apache Ignite and GridGain clusters efficiently. The automation that Kubernetes and the Operator provide simplifies provisioning and minimizes the operational and management burden.
During this webinar, you learn the difference between in-memory clusters and persistent clusters, move step by step through the configuration, and use The GridGain Operator for Kubernetes to deploy Apache Ignite in AWS. You will see how to do the following:
Typically, operations exceed fifty percent of the cost of an IT system’s life cycle. By developing applications that can be easily managed, developers can significantly reduce the cost of ownership. Manageability is especially important for distributed applications because they are especially complex and often mission-critical.
In this webinar, Alexey discusses the following topics:
Kafka with Debezium and GridGain connectors enables change data capture (CDC) based synchronization between third-party databases and GridGain clusters. Synchronization that is based CDC does not require coding; all it requires is to prepare configuration files for each of the points. Developers and architects who can’t yet move from a legacy system can deploy this solution to boost the performance of their applications or to enable their applications to access data from multiple data silos and store it in one place
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.
In this webinar, Denis Magda will introduce several architectural techniques that can help you keep your cluster operational and your applications running even if memory becomes a scarce resource. During the webinar demo you will learn how to use those techniques in practice. Topics covered include:
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.
In this webinar, Denis Magda will discuss architectural patterns and design considerations for deploying Apache Ignite in a serverless computing environment. In particular, you will learn the following:
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. Tracing makes it easier to follow the execution path, analyze timings, and align API calls with logs and stack traces. Apache Ignite 2.9 introduces new tracing instrumentation that is based on the OpenCensus/OpenTelemetry standard.
Growing customer traffic, the launch of new services, seasonal traffic spikes or a host of other load-related issues can slow down customer-facing applications, resulting in poor customer experiences. In-memory computing offers a solution to overcome performance-related challenges and deliver outstanding customer interactions. Inserted between existing application and data layers, in-memory computing platforms can improve application performance up to 100x and enable massive application scalability.

Over the last decade, the 10x growth of transaction volumes, 50x growth in data volumes, and drive for real-time response and analytics has pushed relational databases beyond their limits. Scaling an existing RDBMS vertically with hardware is expensive and limited. Moving to NoSQL requires new skills and major changes to applications. Ripping out the existing RDBMS and replacing it with another RDBMS with a lower TCO is still risky.
