Nikita was one of the pioneers in using Java technology for server-side middleware development. Hi is an active member of Java middleware community and contributor to the Java specification.
We came together for a night of networking with Big Data professionals and learning about leading edge technology that is pushing the envelope of what Big Data can do.
We gave an overview of general in-memory computing principles and the drivers behind it. Some of the topics covered but not limited to were:
- of general in-memory computing principles and the drivers behind it
- popular and emerging use cases for in-memory computing, from financial industry trading platforms to mobile payment processing, online advertising, online/mobile gaming back-ends and more
- foundational concepts and terminology, and considerations around any in-memory solution
- illustration of how a complete in-memory computing stack like the GridGain Data Fabric combines clustering, high performance computing, in-memory data grids, stream processing and Hadoop acceleration into one unified and easy to use platform
