Managing distributed systems can be complex and time consuming because there are numerous moving parts. Having a consistent set of tools can give a clear picture of how clusters are performing, when to take action and avoid potential problems, and how to optimize configurations.

Mythili, IBM Distinguished Engineer, will discuss increasing market pressures in key industries such as banking which are leading Z platform users to leverage Digital Integration Hubs for flexible information flow between core transactional systems and hybrid cloud environments. Digital Integration Hubs efficiently integrated with systems of record can significantly accelerate digital transformation journeys and deliver reduced complexity, high throughput, and low latency.

If your company is in an industry such as ecommerce, logistics, online learning, food delivery, or online business collaboration, you may be seeing a huge spike in your business which is straining the limits of your customer-facing or internal applications. If you need to speed up and scale out your applications, one of the fastest approaches is to deploy an in-memory data grid.

When working with multiple data centers, it is important to ensure high availability of your GridGain cluster. The GridGain Enterprise and Ultimate Editions, built on Apache Ignite®, include a Data Center Replication feature that allows data transfer between caches in distinct topologies, even located in different geographic locations.

Using code examples, we will cover the following topics:

The Apache Ignite transactional engine can execute distributed ACID transactions which span multiple nodes, data partitions, and caches/tables. This key-value API differs slightly from traditional SQL-based transactions but its reliability and flexibility lets you achieve an optimal balance between consistency and performance at scale by following several guidelines.

Apache Ignite can function in a strong consistency mode which keeps application records in sync across all primary and backup replicas. It also supports distributed ACID transactions that allow you to update multiple entries stored on different cluster nodes and in various caches/tables. In addition, consistency and transactional guarantees are put in effect for memory and disk tiers on every cluster node.

Apache Ignite 2.8 includes over 1,900 upgrades and fixes that enhance almost all components of the platform. The release notes include hundreds of line items cataloging the improvements. In this webinar Ignite community members demonstrate and dissect new capabilities related to production maintenance, monitoring, and machine learning including:

Attendees will be introduced to the fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms (IMCPs) in this Apache Ignite tutorial. IMCPs boost application performance and solve scalability problems by storing and processing unlimited data sets distributed across a cluster of interconnected machines.

Apache Ignite® and GridGain® allow you to perform fast calculations and run highly efficient queries over distributed data. Both Ignite and GridGain provide a flexible configuration that can help you make cluster operations more secure. In this webinar, we will cover the following security topics:

  • The secure connection between nodes (SSL/TLS)
  • User authentication
  • User authorization

Using live examples, we will go through the configurations for:

Change Data Capture (CDC) has become a very efficient way to automate and simplify the ETL process for data synchronization between disjointed databases. It is also a useful tool for efficient replication schemas. We will cover the fundamental principles and restrictions of CDC and review examples of how change data capture is implemented in real life use cases. By the end of this session you will understand:
