Tomorrow (July 19) my colleague Akmal B. Chaudhri will host a webinar during which he'll take attendees on a deep-dive into the Apache® Ignite™ architecture's ACID-compliant transactional subsystem.
Why is this important? At the end of this session, you will have a better understanding of why companies in many industries, including large banks and financial institutions, trust Apache Ignite and make it their platform of choice.
Some context: There is a myth that online financial operations need to be delegated to relational databases due to their ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) transaction support.
Today, most of these disk-based relational databases cannot keep pace with the rapidly growing volumes of data that are becoming a bottleneck in the overall transactional system.
There are two solutions to deal with this issue: upgrade to more expensive hardware or migrate to a distributed platform.
Akmal's talk will focus on the following:
- Data consistency: one-phase and two-phase commit implementations.
- Fault-tolerance: recovery protocol for running transactions.
- Optimistic and Pessimistic transactions.
- Deadlock-free transactions
- Deadlock detection mechanism
There will be plenty of time for Q&A, but if you'd like a head start, go ahead and ask a question in the comments below. I'll make sure to address it and will also ask Akmal, GridGain's technical evangelist, to get back to you.
Register now for Akmal's talk, which starts at 11 a.m. Pacific time (2 p.m. Eastern). See you there!
