Traditionally data is placed in storage and then, when needed, accessed and acted upon in memory. This results in a natural bottleneck that degrades performance. Today, with in-memory computing, we can take advantage of a better understanding of how data is shaped and stored. In this session, you will learn how in-memory data grids mark an inflection point for enterprise applications, especially in dealing with big data. The session covers how large data sets can be made available and can be accessed nearly instantaneously.
