Enabling Real-Time Analytics Using an In-Memory Data Grid

Details of Bill Bain's upcoming session at 12th Cloud Expo / Cloud Expo New York [June 10-13, 2013]

In-memory data grids (IMDGs) have seen rapid adoption over the last several years driven by the need to help applications scale their performance as workloads grow.

Because IMDGs host fast-changing (“operational”) data in memory across a cluster of servers, they also offer the ability to perform real-time analytics on this data as it flows through the grid. Recent advances in IMDG technology now enable Hadoop MapReduce-style analytics to be integrated into the IMDG’s architecture, performing parallel analysis even while operational data is changing. This exciting new capability creates the opportunity for real-time analysis in financial trading systems, credit card fraud detection, power systems monitoring, and many other applications.

This session by Bill Bain at 12th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo New York [June 10-13, 2013] will explain how to use an IMDG to perform real-time analytics and will describe recent benchmark results that demonstrate its power to deliver fast results for operational systems.
