GridGain Announces Beta Release of GridGain Cloud

By Ken Briodagh June 14, 2018

GridGain Systems, provider of enterprise-grade in-memory computing solutions based on Apache Ignite, recently announced the beta release of GridGain Cloud. GridGain Cloud is designed to allow users to rapidly deploy a distributed in-memory cache and access it using ANSI-99 SQL, key-value or REST APIs, resulting in in-memory computing performance in the cloud. A free trial of the GridGain Cloud beta is available here.

GridGain Cloud reportedly leverages key elements of the In-Memory Computing Platform to address cloud-based data caching use cases where performance and ease of deployment and management are of primary importance. GridGain Cloud, currently in beta, provides in-memory data caching capabilities that support GridGain Web Console (interactive SQL), REST APIs, JDBC, ODBC, and GridGain or Apache Ignite thin clients.

With GridGain Cloud, any developer or analyst with a knowledge of SQL can launch a cluster with just a few mouse clicks. Users can then load data and monitor and manage the cluster from a central console. GridGain Systems reportedly will continue to add more capabilities during the beta over the coming months.

“GridGain Cloud represents an expansion of our in-memory computing solutions to support data-caching for cloud-native applications,” said Abe Kleinfeld, president and CEO, GridGain Systems. “For customers that do not require the broader functionality of our flagship GridGain In-Memory Computing Platform, GridGain Cloud offers the same in-memory performance and distributed scale for simpler use cases, coupled with the instant deployment and fully automated management that users expect from cloud-based services.”
