In-memory Data Grids (IMDGs) and NoSQL data stores are very alike conceptually. Many utilise a Key/Value store programming model and architecturally they are engineered with the same principals distributed horizontal scalability; high availability; performance and reliability. So the questions is when to use one over the other? This session will look at many of the common use cases seen in large scale web systems today and explore whether the problem to solve is a Big Data problem or a Fast Data problem. We'll look at capabilities of the two technologies and decide whether the best technology for each use case is NoSQL or an IMDG.
