Using an In-Memory Data Grid for Near Real-Time Data Analysis

August 6, 2012

With the ever increasing explosion in data for analysis and the need for fast insights on emerging trends, in-memory data grids (IMDGs) offer a highly attractive platform for hosting map/reduce analysis. In comparison to disk-based map/reduce platforms such as Hadoop, IMDGs reduce analysis times by reducing data motion while simplifying the development model. For applications which need to analyze fast-changing application data, such as shopping or financial trading data, IMDGs can provide near real-time results. Read more…
