Cassandra vs Apache 🔥Ignite for HTAP Hybrid Transactional Analytical Processing


• Free beer/drinks, delicious snacks, freebies and lots more!

• Denis Magda, Vice President of Apache Ignite PMC & Director of Product Management at GridGain

• A Database Month event

Join Denis Magda, Vice President of Apache Ignite PM and director of product management at GridGain, to learn the current best-practices for HTAP along with the differences between Apache Cassandra and Apache Ignite, two of the most-common technologies utilized for Hybrid Transactional/Analytical Processing.

This fun-filled presentation will cover:
• A detailed comparison of Apache Ignite and Apache Cassandra for HTAP
• The requirements of running real-time, high volume HTAP
• Architectural best practices, such as how to use in-memory computing to eliminate trade-offs between consistency, speed and scale

Over the last decade, traditional database technologies have been pushed beyond their limits to keep up with the 10x growth of transaction-volumes and 50x growth in data-volumes, combined with the drive for real-time visibility and responsiveness. Currently, your only choices are to either buy expensive hardware in an effort to accelerate the wrong architecture, or do what other companies have started to do, utilize technologies designed for modern hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP.)
