What is “In-Memory Computing”?

The in-memory computing is known to be an emerging technology for processing data stored in-memory database. To find out more on where in-memory technology, historically came from, you can read on GridGain Systems here: https://www.gridgain.com/wiki/Types_of_In-Memory_Computing.

Who is GridGain?

GridGain Systems is a privately held information technology company, established in 2007, with its headquarters located in Foster City, California. The company provides software and services for big data systems by utilizing in-memory computing to increase data throughput and minimize latency. To date, the company is the in-memory computing leader globally. Grid Gain partnership programs covered in three categories:

GridGain Webinars About In-Memory Computing Essentials

Part 1 webinar with Denis Magda, GridGain Director of Product Management and Apache Ignite PMC Chairman

Part 2 webinar with Akmal Chaudhri, Technology Product Evangelist for GridGain and Apache Ignite

Introductory Hands-On Workshop

This is the first collaborative workshop between DataViz My and GridGainAttendees will be introduced to the fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms that boost high-load applications and services, and bring existing IT architecture to the next level by storing and processing massive quantities of data both in RAM and, optionally, on disk. The capabilities and benefits of such platforms will be demonstrated with the use of Apache Ignite, which is an in-memory computing platform that is durable, strongly consistent, and highly available with powerful Key-Value, SQL and Compute APIs.

At the end of the workshop, attendees will know how to:

  • Configure and deploy Apache Ignite clusters.
  • Partition and replicate data.
  • Process distributed data sets using Key-Value, SQL and Compute APIs.
  • Apply collocated processing in practice.
  • Configure SQL schemas.
  • Enable and utilise persistence.

Attendees will also be introduced to:

  • Turbocharging SQL queries when working with existing Relational database systems.
  • Sharing data and state across multiple Spark jobs using RDDs and DataFrames.
  • Using Ignite’s Machine Learning library for Data Science.
  • Easing DevOps dilemmas by using Ignite with Kubernetes.

Participation Requirement

The workshop is based on the Java programming language. Attendees should be familiar with Java language basics.

  • Lunch, coffee and tea will be provided during the workshop.
  • Limited seat available to only 30 people. In case if you’re unable to attend, kindly inform us in advance (at least 14 working days before the event start) so that we re-open your seat to folks who are interested to participate.
  • A full free conference pass to In-Memory Computing Summit 2019 will be given to all attendees. The value of the pass is about US$600. Attendees who receive this pass will have to make own travel arrangements to the event in Europe or the USA. The In-Memory Computing Summit is held bi-annually in Silicon Valley and Europe. The European conferences are held in Spring and the Silicon Valley conference are held in the autumn. These conferences focus on IMC-related technologies and solutions. They are attended by technical decision-makers, business decision-makers, architects, CTOs, developers — and more — who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions. The Summits feature technical breakout sessions, keynotes, and networking receptions.
