The GridGain Systems In-Memory Computing Blog

Apache Ignite is like a software version of a Swiss Army Knife. With so many features and uses, deploying and configuring it can confuse even an experienced developer. Until now. GridGain Nebula was created to simplify Ignite. It’s a public cloud service designed to help developers deploy, run, monitor, manage, and troubleshoot in-memory applications running any flavor of Apache Ignite or GridGain in any environment....
The Apache Ignite 3.0 Alpha 5 build recently became available. Here is an overview of the new features the community included in this release. Based on industry and use case, they may be of major interest to some developers while less relevant to others. Pluggable Storage Different use cases require different storage engines. Some storage engines are good for read-heavy operations, others are write-optimized. Apache...
The virtual Ignite Summit on June 14 attracted hundreds of Igniters from around the globe excited to learn and share their experiences. (Video of all sessions is available on-demand here.) The event, organized by GridGain and the Apache Ignite community, was preceded the day before by free technical training sessions on Apache Ignite essentials, compute grid, and Apache Ignite with Spring Boot and Spring Data...
To improve application and query performance, developers frequently use summary tables. The summary table pattern is where we feed data into an Apache Ignite or GridGain cluster into two tables: the original data; and a summary, or rollup, of that data. With GridGain’s SQL engine, it’s not always necessary to have a summary table! For many, perhaps most, use cases, the fact that the data...
