Apache Ignite - A Memory-Centric Approach to Durable Distributed Systems
Apache Ignite is one of the fastest growing Apache projects. The presentation will take the audience on a roadmap discovery of Ignite moving to a memory-centric storage model, supporting both, fast in-memory and durable on-disk data, and blending a distributed SQL database with an in-memory key-value data grid. We will cover differences in modern storage systems and dive in detail in how Ignite durable memory is architected, including:
- Page-based off-heap architecture
- B+Tree indexes
- Write-ahead-log (WAL)
- Data checkpointing
