  • A classic caching use where they want to use a cache to decouple Apama from a database (Oracle) used for reference data lookup as part of adata enrichment pattern. They store the history of the last 10 card (credit/debit) transactions done on all the ATMs. Data is pre-loaded into the database but updated during the uptime of the correlator through the cache. The primary driver is performance improvements delivering in-memory speed to complement the correlator story. The data size is in the ~500k transactions a day.For use case one, they could also change the architecture to use a data grid instead, which acts as the system or record (instead of Oracle). The grid needs to provide capabilities to load data from an RDBMS.
  • Use a data grid as as data store for state replication of the correlator and the application running therein with the goal of delivering high availably. The expectation is that there is no loss of transaction.The vision for use case two is to have a distributed correlator that is represented by a set of nodes (>2) that run the Apama contexts and that seamlessly hand over processing from one node to the next. You will want to do away with the classic 2 correlator active-passive or active-active architectures and move to a peer model of masters (N>1) and slaves (M>1). This will go hand in hand with configurable CAP tradeoffs, seamless failover of the nodes.
  •  Highly Distributed Processing:  A worldwide organization has 3000 nodes.  A given process moves asynchronously across these nodes in a non-determanistic way.   At any stop along the way, it may need access to the current state of a ‘record’ (let’s say an order or a complex document).      The record is too big to transfer with the process, but you want to have access to it at any step.  (There would be typoically 5-10 steps where aspects of the complex document would be required.  The entire document is not necessary at any given step (usually). 
  • To sum upThe following replication features address enterprise multisite data replication needs:Any topology of replication is possible to adjust the replication to the business processes it servesThe gateway components are highly available and self healed to ensure replication continuityData can be filtered so only subsets of the data are replicatedThe entire solution is cloud enabled so it can run on any private or public cloud without further effort or adjustmentsThe replication is transactional to allow for data integrity and consistencyUser can customize the conflict resolution algorithm to match any business logicThe data is fully interoperable and can be read and written by .NET, Java and REST systemsOne site can remotely bootstrap other sites
  • Add Puppet too!

  • 1. A universal Data & State sharing Fabric March 2013 Shay Hassidim Deputy CTO
  • 2. Agenda• Company Snapshot• Shared Data & State Fabric – Problem Statement – Existing Solutions – Pros & Cons – IMDG – Fundamentals & Case Study
  • 3. GigaSpaces – Telco Customers and Partners Founded 2000 , 200 Customers , Sales: US , EU , APAC , RND: TLV , Main Investor: Intel
  • 4. Problem Description• Telecom systems internal systems currently use a variety of MOM (AMQP, XMPP) , IM protocols , Network based protocols, Application level protocols (SIP), HTML based protocols (Rest, SOAP) or DB (RDBMS, No SQL) to communicate with each other. – Introduce complexity, cost/ROI concerns, increased time to market, impact customer satisfaction• A universal data & state sharing fabric connecting the different products / systems / components is required – Real time response – Total reliability – Scalable & Highly Available
  • 5. Possible Solutions - #1:Database• Pros – Everybody knows databases. No need to educate the developers.• Cons – Users need to reshape the data structure to use a specific model (Table , Document). Lock-in. – No proactive event based messaging fabric. Requires external messaging integration – Management overhead – Not designed for real-time communication. Mostly disk based storage medium.
  • 6. Possible Solutions - #2:ESB• Pros – Designed for data transformation and routing between alien systems – Protocol translation focused• Cons – Does not maintain state. No state sharing. Getting the latest state requires a DB/Cache – Not designed for real-time communication
  • 7. What if we could combine both DBand ESB but avoid all the cons? + =
  • 8. Enter IMDG• Roots in the Tuple Space concept, RDBMS, OODBMS, MOM• Pros – State sharing in real time in Massive scale – Built-in proactive event based fabric • Fused to the engine core. No external subsystem – Support both Key/Value, SQL Based data access and Message deliver modes with the same API • Topic , Queue, Pub/Sub – Support locality of reference • Collocate Data and business logic• Cons – No full SQL Query support as a RDBMS – Requires some education/ramp up
