Memory-Centric Architecture - A New Approach to Distributed Systems

Memory-Centric Architecture - A New Approach to Distributed Systems

In this presentation Dmitriy will present how to achieve the best performance and scale with the new memory-centric approach to distributed architectures. Dmitriy will go over traditional in-memory and disk-based systems, compare their strengths and weaknesses, cover such features as ACID compliance, SQL compatibility, persistence, replication, security, fault tolerance and more. Dmitriy will also cover some of the most common use cases for distributed computing and analyze some large Apache Ignite and GridGain deployments. Finally you will learn how to build most effective and scalable systems by borrowing the best of 2 worlds - disk-first and memory-first approaches. If you are planning to implement a highly available and performant distributed architecture, then this presentation is definitely for you.
