This meetup is open to everyone currently working with, or interested in, in-memory computing technologies. Why? Because Apache Ignite is the leading open source in-memory computing platform. It is a high-performance, integrated and distributed in-memory platform for computing and transacting on large-scale data sets in real-time. It performs orders of magnitude faster than is possible with traditional disk-based or flash technologies. As an in-memory data management software layer, it sits between applications and various data sources, and does not require the rip-and-replacement of existing databases.
