Presented by Jaromir Hamala, C2B2 Senior Consultant, at JDays Conference on the 27th of November 2013.
Cheap RAM means we can use more memory than an average disk size was not that long time ago. It's very tempting to increase size of our JVM heap and store more data in-memory. As always, there is a trade-off: Large heaps lead to higher latencies due to Garbage Collector overhead. This session will show different strategies for accessing off-heap memory and using the advantage of large RAM without paying the performance penalty.
