In-Memory Computing Essentials for Software Engineers


Join Boston JUG on February 18th to learn fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms that are proven to boost application performance and solve scalability problems by storing and processing unlimited data sets distributed across a cluster of interconnected machines.

The session is tailored for software engineers and architects seeking practical experience with in-memory computing technologies. You'll be given an overview (including code samples in Java) of in-memory concepts such as caches, databases, and data grids combined with a technical deep-dive based on Apache Ignite in-memory computing platform. In particular, we'll cover the following essentials of distributed in-memory systems:
* Data partitioning: utilizing all memory and CPU resources of the cluster
* Affinity co-location: avoiding data shuffling over the network and using highly-performant distributed SQL queries
* Co-located processing: eliminating network impact on the performance of our applications

Presenter: Denis Magda
