The Foundation of the GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform
The Apache® Ignite™ open source in-memory computing platform was originally contributed to the Apache Software Foundation by GridGain® Systems. The Ignite middleware project rapidly evolved into a top level Apache project with millions of downloads since inception. The GridGain Community Edition, Enterprise Edition, and Ultimate Edition are built on Apache Ignite. The GridGain Enterprise and Ultimate Editions include additional features built on top of the Ignite middleware platform for optimal performance in missions-critical use cases. The GridGain Community Edition includes patches and updates not yet released in Ignite with additional features and QA testing to provide the highest possible performance, reliability and managability possible in an open source in-memory computing platform.
Apache Ignite is a powerful in-memory computing platform which includes:
- An In-Memory Data Grid

- A Continuous Learning Framework for machine and deep learning
- A Persistent Store
- An In-Memory Compute Grid
