A Database Month event

This presentation will provide a deep dive into Apache Ignite, a top-level Apache project.

Apache Ignite is the in-memory data fabric that combines in-memory cluster & computing, in-memory data grid and in-memory streaming under one umbrella of a fabric. In-memory data fabric slides between applications and various data sources and provides applications with the ultimate performance and scalability.

Apache Ignite is the first general purpose in-memory computing platform in the Apache Software Foundation family. It is expected that Apache Ignite will have the same effect on Fast Data processing as Hadoop had on Big Data processing.
