Ignite The Fire In Your SQL App

Learn some of the best practices companies have used to increase performance of existing or new SQL-based applications up to 1,000x, scale to millions of transactions per second and handle petabytes of data by adding Apache® Ignite™.

Apache Ignite is (an in-memory computing platform OR an in-memory distributed data store and compute grid) with full-fledged SQL, key-value and processing APIs. Many companies have added it as a cache in-between existing SQL databases and their applications to speed up response times and scale. In other projects they've used it as its own SQL database. 

This session will dive into some of the best practices for both types of projects using Apache Ignite. Topics covered include:

  • Adding Apache Ignite in between existing databases and apps without any changes to the apps
  • How auto-loading of SQL schema, data pre-loading and data synchronization work
  • SQL support under the hood including DDL, DML, SQL queries, SQL indexes and compound indexes, and ACID transactions
  • Configuring Ignite durable memory and native persistence for use as a distributed database with immediate recovery
