Last week at Devoxx Belgium 2017, The Glue's Sven Beauprez demonstrated how to combine Apache® Ignite™ with Docker to build an event-driven microservices platform -- one that is dynamically reconfigurable with zero downtime. "The pre-requisites for the platform are banking-grade NFRs such as Exactly Once Processing of requests, High Availability -- even in case of data center disasters- and no…

Data terabytes, clusters for hundreds of machines, big data, high load, machine learning, microservices... and other scary words are all applicable to Apache® Ignite™. But this does not mean that it is not suitable for less ambitious goals. Today, we'll look at how Ignite can easily store any of your objects, share them over the network, and provide .NET and Java interoperability. We will talk…

The Apache Ignite Service Grid will be the subject of this article in this blog series. Service Grid The main feature of the Apache Ignite Service Grid is to deploy services onto a cluster with availability and fault-tolerance. A counter or an ID generator would be simple examples of services. A major use-case for the Service Grid is to deploy a Singleton. There are a number of different types…

I’m here in Austin for OSCON where tomorrow my session, “The next phase of distributed systems with Apache Ignite,” will teach folks how to optimize Apache® Ignite™ -- leveraging it for low-latency, highly available microservices architectures. This incredibly robust software is being used by Fortune 100 companies to great success and savings over legacy hardware. But first, what is OSCON? It’s…

This is the last blog post in a series recommending how to design and implement microservices-based architecture on top of Apache Ignite In-Memory Data Fabric. The first two posts in the series can be found here: Part I - Overview of the proposed solution. Part II - Various coding templates needed to implement the solution in a live environment.  This final post…

This blog post is the second one in the series of articles that provides a step-by-step guide on how to build a fault-tolerant and scalable microservices-based solution relying on an In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) like Apache Ignite In-Memory Data Fabric. In the first post one of the possible architectures was presented and explained as a system consisted of the following layers: Apache…

Introduction Nowadays many companies are basing their applications and solutions on microservices architecture. One of the main benefits of this approach is that it allows splitting a solution into a number of loosely coupled software components (microservices). These software components might have their own release and life cycles, and even development teams. Moreover, these software blocks…

Impressions for QCon NY

This week I was excited to finally attend QCon NY after having read so many tweets from the event in the past years. I had expected the majority of attendees to be startups, so I was surprised to see many established companies at the event.  The conference was divided into several tracks over the course of three days. Of these tracks, the microservices and containers tracks seemed to be the most…
