Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup

Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup

Join us in Menlo Park July 17 for the next Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup! This free event will take place at BootUp Ventures, located at 68 Willow Road in Menlo Park, CA. Greg Stachnick, director of product management at GridGain Systems, will be sharing Cloud deployment best practices in his talk.

Here's the evening's speaker lineup:

* GridGain: “Cloud deployment best practices”
* Formulus Black: “Memories – Using Memory as Storage Media”
* Oracle: “Thinking about ‘Performance’”

Talk 1: Formulus Black’s software, Forsa, enables any application to run fully in memory without modification, which can significantly enhance performance and decrease latency. This talk will be delivered by one of the company’s engineers (they are still sorting out who will come) and is titled: “Memories – Using Memory as Storage Media.”

Abstract: Imagine if Memory could be used as storage media…
> What properties might it need to have?
> What kind of applications could be supported?
> How much raw data can I fit into Memory?
> What hardware and operating systems are needed?
> What deployment options are possible and can it scale?

Engineers from Formulus Black will present on how they are enabling Memory (DDR/NAND) as a storage media.
Talk 2: “Thinking about ‘Performance’” with Sam Drake, architect, Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database.

Abstract: Today’s applications need ever higher levels of performance. And companies are adopting in-memory technologies in order to make their applications fast. But what does “fast” really mean? “High performance” can mean very different things to different people, and some application architectures that provide “high performance” in some ways can perform rather poorly in other ways.

This talk will discuss different ways to think about performance, and how different application architectures fare better - or worse - depending on which sort of “performance” is most important to you.

Talk 3: Cloud deployment best practices, with Greg Stachnick, director of product management at GridGain Systems.

Abstract: Cloud deployments offer the potential for almost infinite resources and flexible scalability. But there are so many options! It can be overwhelming to know which services are best for your use case. Building distributed systems only adds to the complexity. Come learn some best practices on how to best structure and deploy IMDB/IMDG applications in a cloud environment.
