Accelerate MySQL® for Demanding OLAP and OLTP Use Cases with Apache® Ignite™


MySQL® is an extremely popular and widely used RDBMS. Apache® Ignite™ is the leading open source in-memory computing platform which can provide speed and scale to RDBMS-based applications. Apache Ignite is inserted between existing application and data layers and works with all common RDBMS, NoSQL and Hadoop® databases.

Join Nikita Ivanov, GridGain CTO and Co-Founder, and Peter Zaitsev, CEO and Co-Founder of Percona, as they discuss how you can supplement MySQL with Apache Ignite. You'll learn:

  • How to overcome the limitations of the MySQL architecture for big data analytics by leveraging the parallel distributed computing and ANSI SQL-99 capabilities of Apache Ignite
  • How to use Apache Ignite as an advanced high performance cache platform for hot data
  • The strategic benefits of using Apache Ignite instead of memcache, Redis®, Elastic®, or Apache® Spark™

At the end of this webinar, you will understand how incorporating Apache Ignite into your architecture can empower dramatically faster analytics and transactions when augmenting your current MySQL infrastructure.
