The white papers, webinars, application notes, product comparisons, and videos below discuss the business benefits for CTOs and CIOs looking for in-memory computing solutions.


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.

This white paper provides insight on improving the scale, speed, and agility of MySQL so that it can support the digital transformation initiatives of today's enterprises. New business needs and performance demands have pushed many applications beyond MySQL's (and other RDBMSs) architectural limits. In many cases, the issues cannot be remedied by just fixing MySQL.
This white paper explains how to use in-memory computing to add PostgreSQL speed and scale options to end-to-end IT infrastructure—both from PostgreSQL-centric vendors and from other open source and third-party products. It also explains how help create flexible IT infrastructure over time to both increase speed and scale.
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.
This white paper discusses how to increase Microsoft® SQL Server® speed and scale using in-memory computing. There are options for adding speed and scale to Microsoft SQL Server® at the database level—including SQL Server Always On Availability Groups and SQL Server In-Memory OLTP—and each has its place. But when the speed and scale needs extend beyond the database layer, the best long term approach is in-memory computing.

This white paper discusses how in-memory computing is helping companies address increasing mobile application usage, real-time data needs, improving the customer experience, fraud prevention, compliance, and other requirements to modernize and accelerate payment solutions.
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.

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:

Join this webinar to get started with an Apache Ignite as a Digital Integration Hub for real-time data access across data sources and applications.
This webinar will introduce you to the role of the networking layer in distributed systems with Apache Ignite as an example. You will gain practical insights and learn how to maximize the performance and reliability of your applications running on distributed systems.

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.

Apache Ignite is an excellent tool for external RDBMS, NoSQL or Hadoop database acceleration and offloading. The Ignite in-memory computing platform can power real-time applications that need to process terabytes of data with in-memory speed.

Join us for this webinar to learn about the various Ignite deployment options for database acceleration including:

Join us for a special webinar presented by Branimir Angelov, Co-Founder and CTO of Kubo, Software Architecture Consultant in Obecto, and Member of the Comrade Cooperative.

Many machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) platforms are slow in production environments. It can sometimes take hours or days to update ML models. This is a result of having the ML processing run on a different system from the operational transactions system in order to avoid a performance degradation.

In this webinar, Glenn Wiebe, GridGain Solution Architect, will introduce developers to Apache Ignite as an in-memory database (IMDB). He will review how an IMDB differs from a cache or an in-memory data grid (IMDG). He will discuss the key characteristics of an IMDB and also highlight core Ignite features and facilities. Finally, Glenn will demonstrate a repeatable and extensible process to:
