Apache Ignite 3 Alpha 3: The Journey Continues

The development of Ignite 3 started about a year ago. Since then, the community has made significant progress: designed a new modular architecture for the next generation of the platform, implemented the unified data replication infrastructure (the cornerstone of the architecture), and added various features.

Just now, the Apache Ignite community released the latest version of Ignite 3—Alpha 3! Valentin Kulichenko, the Ignite 3.0 Release manager, will discuss the updates and demonstrate the latest API changes.

This release features the following new functionality:

- New SQL engine, based on Apache Calcite + JDBC driver
- Persistence implementation, based on RocksDB
- New binary client protocol with an implementation in Java
- Data rebalancing

At the end of the meeting Valentin will also provide some information about the development plan and updates that will come next.
