Is Apache Ignite a Swiss Army Knife? Not Really…
As Apache Ignite approaches its 10-year anniversary, it is being used in more and more systems and applications and in an increasing variety of use cases. Given the dizzying pace of Apache Ignite adoption, it is not uncommon to hear that Apache Ignite is like a “Swiss army knife,” a tool that can be used for all data-processing use cases. Well, it is not… Join the founder and CTO of GridGain Systems, Nikita Ivanov, as he shares his view on the “Swiss army knife” analogy and details the three use cases for which Apache Ignite was designed. These use cases, which are often interconnected and interdependent, are found today in each and every installation of Apache Ignite: - Data caching and application acceleration - Digital integration hub - Co-located compute
