GridGain In-Memory Compute Grid

Faster Processing Using the Full Power of Your Cluster

The GridGain In-Memory Compute Grid feature enables parallel processing of CPU or otherwise resource intensive tasks including traditional High Performance Computing (HPC) and Massively Parallel Processing (MPP). Queries are broken down into sub-queries which are sent to the relevant nodes in the compute grid of the GridGain cluster and processed on the local CPUs where the data resides. Sub-query results from the in-memory compute grid are aggregated to produce the results for the original query much faster than would have been possible by running the query on a single node.
