Apache Ignite Quick Start Guide

By: Sujoy Acharya

Overview of this book

Apache Ignite is a distributed in-memory platform designed to scale and process large volume of data. It can be integrated with microservices as well as monolithic systems, and can be used as a scalable, highly available and performant deployment platform for microservices. This book will teach you to use Apache Ignite for building a high-performance, scalable, highly available system architecture with data integrity. The book takes you through the basics of Apache Ignite and in-memory technologies. You will learn about installation and clustering Ignite nodes, caching topologies, and various caching strategies, such as cache aside, read and write through, and write behind. Next, you will delve into detailed aspects of Ignite’s data grid: web session clustering and querying data. You will learn how to process large volumes of data using compute grid and Ignite’s map-reduce and executor service. You will learn about the memory architecture of Apache Ignite and monitoring memory and caches. You will use Ignite for complex event processing, event streaming, and the time-series predictions of opportunities and threats. Additionally, you will go through off-heap and on-heap caching, swapping, and native and Spring framework integration with Apache Ignite. By the end of this book, you will be confident with all the features of Apache Ignite 2.x that can be used to build a high-performance system architecture.

Securing data

Application security has become a necessity for protecting sensitive data from malicious activity. Ignite provides the following mechanism to protect our sensitive data:

  1. Inter node communication: Ignite doesn't have a master node to communicate with other nodes. When a new node gets added or removed from the network, the cluster rebalances data transparently. Therefore, we need to secure the inter-node communication channel so that when a new node is added, it doesn't get our application data automatically. Ignite allows you to use SSL socket communication to provide a secure connection among all Ignite nodes. We can configure SSL context factory to use trusted certificates and passwords.
  2. Authentication: Ignite allows you to secure the cluster by configuring authentication, but authentication is only supported when persistence is enabled.
  3. Trusting serialized...
