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 hands-on training is for those wondering how to monitor and manage Apache Ignite clusters in production: what the most important metrics are, how to set up alerting or troubleshoot performance when the cluster is under the production load, and develop queries. The list of questions and challenges related to Ignite production monitoring goes on and on. And you’ll get many of those questions covered.

During this webinar, we review various approaches to storing and using authentication data in distributed applications. Moving from the simplest to the most complex models, we consider the pros and cons of each approach. We give special attention to one of the most popular approaches to distributed sessions—single sign-on.

As an example, we consider a secured GridGain cluster and its monitoring tool—Control Center. We see how to integrate GridGain and Control Center with various OpenID Connect providers, and learn about the advantages that such a setup offers.

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.

Networking is a core pillar of any distributed system and is responsible for cluster-node discovery procedures, peer-to-peer communication between nodes, and failure handling. Network architecture can greatly influence operational performance and efficiency.

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. In particular, you will learn:

Apache Ignite and GridGain can be used as a simple cache, an in-memory data grid (IMDG), and as an in-memory database (IMDB). These data management patterns can be combined with Ignite integration facilities to function as a Digital Integration Hub (DIH) for real-time data access across data sources and applications. Common uses for the DIH architecture include:

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.

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.

In this IMCS Europe 2019 session, Denis Magda describes how Apache Ignite and GridGain as an in-memory computing platform can modernize existing data lake architectures, enabling real-time analytics that spans operational, historical, and streaming data sets.

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.
