In-Memory Cache-as-a-Service with SQL, Key-Value, and REST APIs
FOSTER CITY, Calif., June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GridGain Systems, provider of enterprise-grade in-memory computing solutions based on Apache® Ignite™, today announced the beta release of GridGain Cloud. GridGain Cloud is the only in-memory cache-as-a-service that allows users to rapidly deploy a distributed in-memory cache and access it using ANSI-99 SQL, key-value or REST APIs. The result is in-memory computing performance in the cloud, which can be massively scaled out and can be deployed in minutes for caching applications. A free trial of the GridGain Cloud beta is available by visiting https://cloud.gridgain.com/.
Built on GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform
GridGain Cloud leverages key elements of the market-leading GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform to address cloud-based data caching use cases where performance and ease of deployment and management are of primary importance.
GridGain Cloud for Caching
GridGain Cloud, currently in beta, provides in-memory data caching capabilities that support GridGain Web Console (interactive SQL), REST APIs, JDBC, ODBC, and GridGain or Apache Ignite thin clients. With GridGain Cloud, any developer or analyst with a knowledge of SQL can launch a cluster with just a few mouse clicks. Users can then load data and monitor and manage the cluster from a central console. GridGain Systems will continue to add more capabilities during the beta over the coming months.
The beta of GridGain Cloud is free to try. Visit https://cloud.gridgain.com/.
According to 451 Research, by 2019, 60 percent of workloads will be deployed in cloud environments, including on-premises private clouds, hosted private clouds, IaaS and SaaS. The implication is that hybrid cloud environments will dominate for years to come. As a result, organizations developing digital transformation or omnichannel customer experience initiatives will need to ensure their applications scale across the hybrid infrastructure. They will also need to ensure real-time visibility into their data no matter where it resides to support their operational, transactional, regulatory and analytical requirements.
“GridGain Cloud represents an expansion of our in-memory computing solutions to support data-caching for cloud-native applications. For customers that do not require the broader functionality of our flagship GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform, GridGain Cloud offers the same in-memory performance and distributed scale for simpler use cases, coupled with the instant deployment and fully automated management that users expect from cloud-based services,” said Abe Kleinfeld, president and CEO of GridGain Systems.
