In-memory computing is driving a revolution that will change human society. With solutions that allow Big Data to reside in RAM across a cluster of nodes for massive parallel processing, data insights are becoming possible at unprecedented speed and scale with costs well within reach. These new capabilities allow real-time insights from transactional data, turning Big Data into Fast Data.
Today’s in-memory computing features include:
- Previously unattainable performance and speed
- Scalability and availability
- The ability to drive convergence of other data technologies
- An Open Source framework
- Robust capabilities
- Suitability for both modern and legacy application architectures
This white paper discusses these aspects of in-memory computing and describes ways in which the society of the future will benefit from the evolution to Fast Data.
