GridGain Big Data is a Java-based and open-source middleware solution that enables real-time big data analysis on a distributed computing architecture. It is used to evaluate data that resides or is processed in real-time on a server or virtual machine memory.
Built over the MapReduce data analysis and sorting model, GridGain Big Data is designed to work in computing-intensive environments, where computations are performed on a series of distributed computers or servers. GridGain Big Data is generally integrated between a business intelligence (BI) solution and relational database management system (RDBMS) software. When a query is passed to GridGain Big Data, the task is portioned and executed on GridGain nodes and reassembled and delivered to the requesting app.
