The GridGain® Ultimate Edition enables you to put GridGain Persistent Store into production with confidence. The Ultimate Edition includes all the features of the GridGain Enterprise Edition plus a Cluster Snapshots feature for automated backups of the GridGain datastore. When using GridGain with the Persistent Store feature, the system provides the capabilities of a distributed transactional SQL database. The system holds the full dataset on disk with all or a portion of the dataset maintained in memory. SQL queries can be run on the combined memory/disk dataset which provides fast data processing which is improved by increasing the amount of data held in memory.
