Going Cloud-Native: Serverless Applications With Apache Ignite

Serverless computing allows you to design and build scalable cloud-native applications without thinking about infrastructure provisioning and orchestration. With Apache Ignite, you can bootstrap an in-memory cluster in the cloud and access data 100-1000x faster than with disk-based databases.

In this webinar, Denis Magda will discuss architectural patterns and design considerations for deploying Apache Ignite in a serverless computing environment. In particular, you will learn the following:

  • Ignite deployment patterns in the cloud: VMs vs. Kubernetes
  • Ignite native APIs for serverless functions/lambdas: comparing thick clients, thin clients, REST APIs.
  • Using Ignite with Quarkus and Micronaut.
  • How to run compute tasks in the serverless environment
  • How to make your cluster serverless: Ignite as a managed service
