High performance flash memory and other solid-state storage and non-volatile memory technologies are enabling new computing architectures that enable digital transformation. In this piece we look at three companies that are building enterprise and cloud storage offering that include solid-state storage and non-volatile memory.
GridGain is a provider of enterprise in-memory computing (IMC) solutions based upon Apache Ignite (an open source in-memory computing platform). The company says that their products are used for web-scale applications, SaaS and Cloud computing, mobile and IoT backends, streaming and real-time processing, cognitive computing and big data analytics. The image below shows GridGain’s use in RDBMS, NoSQL and Hadoop applications.
GridGain contributed to Apache Ignite and runs an In-Memory Computing Summit. The company says that unified in-memory computing will power digital enterprise and bring on digital transformations. In particular an in-memory store can assist with analytical and transactional data processing. The Ignite integrated persistent store keeps all data on disk with all or some of the data in memory and processes done on data in-memory or on disk. The fast in-memory data grid restart begins processing on disk data while the memory warms up and with the in-memory database data backed up to disk.
