The GridGain Enterprise Edition

For Mission Critical In-Memory Computing Applications

Software Datasheet

The GridGain® in-memory computing platform, built on Apache® Ignite™, offers in-memory computing solutions that allow new or existing disk-based applications to run queries 1,000x or more faster and scale out to petabytes of in-memory data. The GridGain Enterprise Edition builds on Apache Ignite by including additional features and undergoing more QA testing which makes it easier to deploy, manage and secure in production environments.

The GridGain Enterprise Edition is deployed as an in-memory computing layer between the application and data layers. GridGain includes powerful features for in-memory computing including an in-memory data grid, in-memory database, in-memory compute grid, in-memory SQL grid, in-memory streaming analytics engine, and much more. GridGain includes the only available in-memory data grid with ANSI-99 SQL, including DDL and DML support, plus ACID transaction guarantees.

GridGain works with all popular RDBMS, NoSQL and Hadoop databases, requiring no rip and replace of the existing database infrastructure. With ACID compliant transactions and ANSI SQL-99 support, the GridGain Enterprise Edition is a powerful in-memory addition for OLTP, OLAP or HTAP use cases.

The GridGain Enterprise Edition includes the following features in addition to the core features of Apache Ignite.

Enterprise-Grade Security

The GridGain Enterprise Edition Enterprise-Grade Security provides extensible and customizable authentication and security capabilities. It includes both a Grid Authentication SPI and a Grid Secure Session SPI to satisfy a variety of security requirements.

GridGain Enterprise Edition Network Segmentation Protection

Network Segmentation Protection detects any network disruption within the grid to prevent transactional data grids from developing a ‘split brain’ scenario. The options for handling these network occurrences are fully configurable to handle these situations the way you need to for a variety of use cases.

Rolling Production Updates

The Rolling Production Updates feature enables you to co-deploy multiple versions of our software and allow them to co-exist as you roll out new versions. This prevents any downtime when performing software upgrades.

Data Center Replication

GridGain reliably replicates data on a per-cache basis across two or more regions connected by wide area networks. This allows geographically remote data centers to maintain consistent views of data. With GridGain reliability and predictability, Data Center Replication ensures business continuity and can be used as part of a disaster recovery plan. Data Center Replication integrates with your application so that caches marked for replication are automatically synchronized across the WAN link. Predictable performance includes:

  • Asynchronous data replication to maximize performance
  • Fault tolerance
  • Conflict resolution when needed
  • Scaling (at the local cluster, and in the number of WAN-linked clusters)
  • Multiple types of topologies supported
  • Brokerless (no JMS broker needed for replication)

Management & Monitoring GUI

Our GUI-based Management and Monitoring tool provides a unified operations, management and monitoring system for GridGain deployments. Visor provides a deep management and monitoring view into all aspects of GridGain operations – from HPC and Data Grid to Streaming, and Hadoop acceleration, via standard dashboards, advanced charting of performance metrics, and grid health (telemetry) views, among many other features.

Oracle® GoldenGate Integration

The Oracle GoldenGate integration in the GridGain Enterprise Edition provides real-time data integration and replication into a GridGain cluster from different environments. When users configure GoldenGate integration replication, the GridGain in-memory computing platform will automatically receive updates from the connected source database, converting the data from a database relational model to cache objects.
