Get Started With Apache Ignite as an In-Memory Database (IMDB)

Glenn Wiebe, Solutions Architect at GridGain, has created a helpful video series that introduces developers to Apache Ignite as an in-memory database (IMDB) and features a demo that will set up a working IMDB in ten minutes. The demo walks through the process of configuration creation, data loading and cluster querying via SQL tools.

1. Introduction

Learn the difference between Apache Ignite as a cache and as an IMDB. Additionally, whis video shows how to get started with an Apache Ignite cluster, use pre-built examples or the web wizard to jump-start a project and deploy an in-memory database.

2. Create Configuration With GridGain Web Console

The free GridGain Web Console can configure, interact/query, monitor and manage Apache Ignite clusters. In this video, see how to quickly set up the configuration for a new Apache Ignite cluster by using the GridGain Configuration Wizard within the web console. The wizard can import an existing database and pre-populate a new cluster configuration. Additionally, users can customize the cluster configuration with additional Ignite-specific parameters.

3. Build, Run and Load Cluster

Watch this video to learn how to download and build a sample project generated by the GridGain Web Console, start an Apache Ignite cluster and load it with data from a relational database (MySQL). The video also shows how the GridGain Web Console can be used to monitor the cluster.

4. Execute SQL Queries

This last video of the four-part series, demonstrates how to connect to the Apache Ignite cluster and query it with SQL commands from the GridGain Web Console and DBeaver.
