GridGain has officially released its In-Memory Computing Platform through an Apache 2.0 open source license, offering access to its technology for a broad range of real-time data processing applications. GridGain’s open source software provides the freedom to develop with a mature, complete and tested in-memory computing platform, enabling computation and transactions orders of magnitude faster than traditional technologies allow.
The promised advances of big data combined with internet scale simply can’t happen without a transformative change in computing performance,” said Abe Kleinfeld, CEO of GridGain. “In-memory computing is enabling this change by offering a major leap forward in computing power, opening doors to a new era of innovation.”
In-memory computing on commodity hardware is no longer a dream. The falling cost of RAM has made in-memory computing broadly accessible to organizations of all sizes. In a recent customer engagement, GridGain demonstrated one billion financial transactions per second using its In-Memory Data Grid software on just $25,000 of commodity hardware. According to GridGain, a performance increase of this magnitude will allow organizations to achieve goals they would not have previously considered pursuing.
GridGain’s In-Memory Computing Platform is used in a broad range of applications including:
- Financial trading systems
- Online gaming
- Hyperlocal advertising
- Cognitive computing
- Geospatial analysis
