Apache Geode (incubating) is the core of Pivotal Gemfire now available as an open source project governed by Apache Software Foundation Incubator. The legacy of Pivotal Gemfire and the ASF community uniquely position Geode as a secret ingredient for modern-day data management architectures.
These types of architectures require a robust in-memory data grid solution to handle a variety of use cases, ranging from enterprise-wide caching to real-time transactional applications at scale. In addition, as memory size and network bandwidth growth continues to outpace those of disk, the importance of managing large pools of RAM at scale increases. It is essential to innovate at the same pace.
Apache Geode (incubating) has all the right ingredients to do for RAM what HDFS has done for direct attach disks. The excitement (and funding!) in this area of big data ecosystem is palpable, and the ASF is the place where the innovation is happening. Come to this session to understand: a brief history of Geode, architecture and use cases, design philosophy and principles, but most importantly: how you too can participate in the in-memory data center revolution.
