GridGain Systems uses in-memory computing to enable data-intensive applications to run 1,000x faster and massively scale out without ripping and replacing your existing databases or rewriting your applications. The GridGain cluster can scale out to support hundreds of TBs of in-memory data. The GridGain in-memory performance layer sits between your application and data layers and can be deployed on premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments.

GridGain is used by major financial services, telecom, retail, online services, IoT, and pharma companies in mission-critical applications. It dramatically improves the performance of existing systems for high-volume transactions, real-time analytics and hybrid transactional/analytical processing.

Built on the open source Apache Ignite™ project, GridGain includes a compute grid, data grid, service grid, as well as in-memory streaming, messaging and Hadoop acceleration in a single converged data platform. GridGain has a Unified API which connects seamlessly to business-critical applications and a data abstraction layer which allows it to connect to any RDBMS, NoSQL and/or Hadoop database. Data is pulled into the GridGain in-memory computing cluster, increasing processing speeds by 1,000x or more versus disk-based databases. The GridGain cluster is easily expanded by adding commodity nodes, which allows your applications to scale out and also run faster. GridGain offers full ACID transactions and supports all key types of applications (Java,NET, C++) with ANSI SQL-99 compliance.
