Today in-memory computing and real-analytics are challenged by slow performance of applications and cost effective scaling. For in-memory computing applications, like financial trading and on-line transactions, you need a memory-based solution to extend your dataset into flash storage.
During this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Use software in combination with Flash memory SSDs
- Utilize NoSQL databases such as Cassandra to achieve four times higher performance when used with SSDs vs. when they are running on hard disk drives (HDDs)
- Bridge the gap between DRAM and flash storage for in-memory computing applications, like fraud detection, supply chain optimization and risk analysis
Register for this webinar to learn how to allow your working dataset to expand beyond limited and expensive DRAM capacities into terabytes of lower cost flash storage, improving Transactions Per Second (TPS), per dollar, by up to four times.
