For those who are not familiar with GridGain, it is an open source distributed data grid product mainly focusing on distributed in-memory caching, distributed computations, and streaming. It generally addresses all sorts of performance and scalability challenges for business applications by bringing and caching data in memory and allowing to compute on it.
With release 6.1.9, GridGain significantly simplified its installation and deployment. GridGain now allows for:
- One Click Installation:
The product simply has to be downloaded and unzipped. After that it is ready to be used.
- One Jar Dependency:
GridGain now has only one mandatory dependency - gridgain-6.1.9.jar. All other jars are optional.
