Thursday, 19 October sees our Eurostaff Connect London Meetup take place at Huckletree in Finsbury Square where we’ll be discussing: Better Machine Learning with Apache® Ignite™. Eurostaff are privileged to be partnering with GridGain to bring our audience insight into how businesses, looking to make the most out of the data they receive, can use Apache Ignite to their advantage.

Our keynote speaker, Akmal Chaudhri, explains in more detail about GridGain and their mission, with some insight given about platform Apache® Ignite.

Tell us a little bit about GridGain and its mission

GridGain offers the first enterprise-grade in-memory computing platform built on Apache Ignite™. The GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform addresses today's Fast Data challenges and unleashes the competitive advantage of any real-time business, whether deployed on-premise or in the cloud. GridGain Systems solutions offer the most comprehensive, enterprise-grade in-memory computing solution for high-volume transactions, real-time analytics and hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP).

Why was Apache® Ignite™ chosen to build the In-Memory Computing Platform GridGain?

Apache® Ignite is the Open Source platform. GridGain Enterprise version is the paid-for technology built on the same platform. Essentially, it is the same product but the GridGain Enterprise version offers some additional capabilities that requires licensing. This open source-enterprise model is quite common today.

What useful data and outcomes can be generated by using GridGain?

GridGain Enterprise is designed to support two main problems today: scalability and performance. Both can be achieved by growing the cluster through adding additional server nodes. There are many case studies available on the web site that cover a wide-range of verticals where Ignite or GridGain have been used.

How does understanding Apache Ignite develop a specialist’s core competencies when looking for new opportunities in these areas?

Ignite is about cluster computing and distributed processing. Programming knowledge is required to use the platform successfully, but many things are managed by the system. For example, it is self-healing, so can do a very good job with failover if parts of the cluster are no longer available.

Which types of businesses currently use GridGain?

GridGain Solutions are used daily by hundreds of organizations which you can find here:
