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.

Exploring the deployment options

We have explored the Ignite memory architecture, monitored metrics, tuned performance, and secured our application. Now we are ready to deploy our code to production. Apache Ignite supports various deployment environments, such as the following:

  • Docker: This is the de facto standard for packaging apps. Its a "Package Once Deploy Anywhere" [ Arun Gupta] solution for our apps. Docker allows us to package Ignite deployments with all the dependencies into a standard container.
  • AWS: You can easily set up an Ignite cluster in AWS by starting an Apache Ignite machine image in EC2. AWS is a public cloud and resolves all infrastructural (scalability, security, deployment and so on) problems.
  • Google Cloud: Apache Ignite machine images can be installed in Google cloud to set up a cluster and get the advantages of public cloud deployment, such as...
