Accelerate MySQL® for Demanding OLAP and OLTP Use Cases with Apache® Ignite™
Apache Ignite is the leading open source in-memory computing platform. It provides vast speed and scale to RDBMS-based applications. Apache Ignite is inserted between existing application and data layers and works with all common RDBMS, NoSQL and Hadoop® databases.
As data volumes continue to increase exponentially, businesses continue to demand accurate real-time data analysis. That is extremely difficult to achieve with MySQL alone. Many MySQL users have leveraged additional open source and commercial solutions to enhance MySQL’s capabilities and add in-memory computing functionality. However, these point solutions lack the full functionality of an in-memory computing platform like Apache Ignite.
At the end of this talk, you will understand how incorporating Apache Ignite into your architecture can empower dramatically faster analytics and transactions when augmenting your current MySQL infrastructure.
