I recently joined GridGain as a Technology Evangelist. My role is to help build the global Apache® Ignite™ community and raise awareness through presentations and technical writing. My background is database systems and I have no previous experience with Apache Ignite. So, in this series of articles, I will share what I learned about Apache Ignite as a beginner and I hope that this will also be useful to other beginners. In this first blog post, I will cover clustering and deployment.

As far as technology trade shows go, it was a pretty exciting and ground breaking show. There were dozens of interesting talks and demos and well over 200 exhibitors with every possible flavor of hardware and software related to IoT that you can imagine.
