Using an In-Memory Data Grid to Scale Cloud-Based Apps at Cloud Expo NY

The elastic resources offered by cloud computing have created an exciting opportunity for applications to handle very large workloads. However, writing applications that span an elastic pool of virtual servers creates huge challenges for developers. How can these virtual servers easily and efficiently share application data while avoiding scaliability bottlenecks? The answer lies in using in-memory data grids (IMDGs) to provide a powerful, easy-to-use, and highly scalable storage layer.
IMDGs unlock the potential for application scaling while eliminating the cost and performance impact of using blob stores and database servers. IMDGs also provide a powerful platform for fast data analysis and enable transparent data migration between on-premise sites and the cloud.
