Join GridGain Systems Product Manager Denis Magda as he introduces the newest features in Apache Ignite 2.0 including the dramatically improved memory architecture and enhanced SQL DDL support.
Apache Ignite 2.0 is a turnkey release which blends a distributed in-memory SQL database (IMDB) and an in-memory key-value data grid (IMDG) under one data management platform. It is also a necessary stepping stone ahead of the Apache Ignite 2.1 release which will be focused around native disk persistence, allowing Ignite operate equally well in-memory and on-disk.
In this webinar, you will learn how the off-heap memory architecture in Ignite has been re-engineered to better support SSD or Flash-based persistence. The new off-heap design uses a page-based approach with slab memory allocation, which may be optionally mapped to a persistent storage as is, without having to serialize or deserialize the data. The new architecture automatically handles memory fragmentation, significantly accelerates SQL, and almost completely removes costly garbage collection pauses.
You will also learn how to create and alter SQL indexes at runtime, as well as utilize DDL to update distributed data sets using standard SQL syntax. We will also cover B+Tree data structures used to store SQL indexes off-heap.
For current or new Ignite users, this webinar will help you understand the newest features in Apache Ignite 2.0, the world’s leading open source in-memory computing platform.
