According to 451 Research, a converged data platform includes:
- Distributed Grid/Cache
- Stream Processing
- Relational Operational Database
- NoSQL Database
- Analytic Database
The GridGain in-memory computing platform includes all of the elements of a converged data platform including an in-memory data grid, a relational memory-centric database, and an in-memory streaming analytics engine. GridGain seamlessly integrates with relational operational databases, NoSQL databases, and with Hadoop while offering ACID transactions, query processing acceleration, and extreme scalability. Once data is uploaded into GridGain, analytics at in-memory speeds can be run on the data in the GridGain cluster using ANSI-99 compliant SQL. GridGain is easily containerized using solutions such as Docker for ease of deployment.
