GridGain Can Accelerate and Scale Out Your Existing or New Applications

GridGain provides in-memory speed and massive scalability to new or existing applications which can provide the performance needed for digital transformation and omnichannel customer experience initiatives. Built on the Apache Ignite open source project, GridGain is a cost effective solution which can be easily integrated into your existing architectures and infrastructure.

The GridGain in-memory computing platform easily integrates with your systems, deployed as an in-memory computing layer between the application and data layer of your new or existing applications. GridGain can be deployed on-premises, on a public or private cloud, or on a hybrid environment.

GridGain is usually deployed as an in-memory data grid for existing applications and as an in-memory data grid or as an in-memory database for new applications. A Unified API provides easy integration with your existing code with support for SQL, Java, C++, .NET, Scala, Groovy, and Node.js, enabling you to create modern, flexible applications built on an in-memory computing platform which will grow with your business needs. GridGain includes ANSI-99 SQL and ACID transaction support.

A variety of resources including white papers, webinar recordings, application notes, product comparisons, and videos are listed below which discuss use case considerations from a technology standpoint.


PostgreSQL is one of the most popular open source databases. There are over thirty different distributions and products built on PostgreSQL. These products give companies many options: almost too many to choose from when growing their PostgreSQL deployments.

Learn how high-performance in-memory computing architecture is rapidly becoming the method of choice for today’s real-time applications that are focused on big data, fast data, streaming analytics or machine and deep learning.
Download this white paper to learn about your options for adding speed, scale and agility to end-to-end IT infrastructure—from SAP HANA to third-party vendors and open source. It also explains how to evolve your architecture over time for speed and scale, become more flexible to change, and support new technologies as needed.

Applications and their underlying RDBMSs have been pushed beyond their architectural limits by new business needs, and new software layers. Companies have to add speed, scale, agility and new capabilities to support digital transformation and other business critical initiatives.

This white paper will discuss the challenges facing today’s insurance industry, the opportunities new technologies can offer, and the crucial edge that providers can gain with solutions such as the GridGain in-memory computing platform.
The in-memory computing solutions of the future must not only offer the key capabilities that database users expect, such as SQL support, but also provide a bridge to emerging use cases, such as machine learning and deep learning, and transformative new storage technologies, such as non-volatile memory. This white paper delves into these application-crucial topics and then shows how Apache Ignite and GridGain are addressing them.
This white paper discusses how an in-memory computing platform solution like GridGain gives financial services companies the speed, scalability, and flexibility they need to build successful IoT-based applications and services.

The shift to digital payments is taking place in many forms: bitcoins, mobile wallets, “tap and go” payment transactions, peer-to-peer money-transfer apps and more. Worldwide, the mobile payments market alone has grown from $235 billion in 2013 to a projected value of almost $800 billion in 2017 and over a trillion dollars by 2019.

This white paper reviews why IMC makes sense for today’s fast-data and big-data applications, dispels common myths about IMC, and clarifies the distinctions among IMC product categories to make the process of choosing the right IMC solution for a specific use case much easier.
This white paper will give you a better understanding of how in-memory computing forms the backbone of successful high performance, highly scalable and mission-critical technology solutions in the FinTech industry. You will also learn how in-memory computing helps address many current limitations of legacy financial systems.

Data lakes, such as those powered by Hadoop, are an excellent choice for analytics and reporting at scale. Hadoop scales horizontally and cost-effectively and fulfills long-running operations spanning big data sets. However, the continual growth of real-time analytics requirements — where operations need to be completed in seconds rather than minutes, or milliseconds rather than seconds — has brought new challenges to Hadoop based solutions.

MySQL® is arguably the most widely used open source database in the world, even if you don't include MariaDB® or Percona® as a variant. But it has a host of challenges and options to solve them.

Learn how companies have added speed and scale to MySQL deployments for different use cases. This webinar will cover the various options available and when each option makes sense. It will also cover how to evolve your architecture over time to add the speed, scale, agility and new technologies needed for digital transformation and other initiatives.

As an in-memory computing platform, GridGain® and Apache Ignite support native persistence that stores data and indexes transparently on non-volatile memory, SSD or disk. When persistence is enabled, memory becomes a cache for the most frequently used data and indexes. Native persistence is ACID-compliant, durable and enables immediate availability on a restart of each node. Data is never lost; GridGain supports full and incremental snapshots along with continuous archiving, and provides Point-in-Time recovery to an individual transaction.

PostgreSQL is one of the most widely databases globally, especially if you add up all the different distributions. This is in part what makes it challenging to figure out how to lower latency and improve scalability with business-critical PostgreSQL deployments.

Guaranteeing that your in-memory computing solution stays up and running is the most important goal for a rolling out a new production environment. The trick is making sure that you have all the bases covered and have thought through all your requirements, needs, and potential roadblocks.

In this webinar, Apache® Ignite™ PMC Chair Denis Magda shares a checklist to consider for your Apache Ignite production deployments. This checklist includes:

With most machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) frameworks, it can take hours to move data, and hours to train models. Learn how Apache Ignite eliminates runs model training and execution in near-real-time and makes continuous learning possible.

In this Webinar, Yuri Babak, the head of ML/DL framework development at GridGain and major contributor to Apache Ignite, will explain how ML and DL work with Apache Ignite, and how to get started. Topics include:

The Oracle® Database is one of the most scalable RDBMSs on the market. But even Oracle has been pushed beyond its architectural limits by new business needs and software layers. The reason is simple: the performance issues cannot be solved by making changes to the database.

Digital transformation is arguably the most important initiative in IT today, in large part because of its ability to improve the customer experience and business operations, and to make a business more agile.  

But delivering a responsive digital business is not possible at scale without in-memory computing. This session, the third in the In-Memory Computing Best Practices Series, dives into how in-memory computing acts as a foundation for digital business.  Topics include how in-memory computing is used to:

It's hard to improve the customer experience when your existing applications can't handle the existing loads and are inflexible to change. This webinar is Part 2 in our In-Memory Computing Best Practices Series. It focuses on the most common first in-memory computing project, adding speed and scale to existing applications. 

Digital transformations are arguably the most important initiatives for companies. They can literally make or break a business.  But transformation is not easy because there’s a big digital divide between the speed, scale and computing needed for new digital channels and APIs, and what existing systems can deliver. Learn how leading digital innovators have solved these problems by using in-memory computing, and the roadmaps that worked for them.
