White paper: beyond data grids – the advantages of in-memory platforms
With the cost of system memory dropping 30% every 12 months, in-memory computing has become the first choice for a variety of workloads within the financial services industry. In-memory computing can provide a lower TCO for data processing systems while providing an unparalleled performance advantage.
In-memory computing technologies take many forms, ranging from in-memory data caches on a single server to in-memory databases (IMDBs), in-memory data grids (IMDGs) and comprehensive in-memory computing platforms (IMCPs). Choosing the right solution for your use case can be confusing.
This free white paper provides an overview of in-memory computing technology with a focus on in-memory data grids. It discusses the advantages and uses of in-memory data grids and introduces the capabilities of the GridGain in-memory computing platform, built on Apache Ignite.
