Something amazing is happening in Palo Alto March 9. It’s the first gathering of over 100 users and developers of the GemFire and Apache Geode (incubating) in-memory data grid technology at Geode Summit. What were previously dark arts and specialized techniques will be revealed to the open source community. Speakers from a dozen companies that have deployed or are running some of the largest production instances of the technology will share their experience and use cases. There will be hands-on training, and keynotes from industry luminaries about the future of in-memory computing and big data.
Geode was born in the fallout from Enron
The technology that became Apache Geode (incubating) was first invented trying to help a financial services startup scale up to meet new opportunity as a result of the spectacular failure of Enron. Watch this interview with Richard Lamb, a co-founder of the technology, about genesis of GemFire by Gemstone Systems.
GemFire continued a successful growth path once Gemstone Systems was acquired by VMWare, and then spun out to become a key part of Pivotal. Last year Pivotal proposed to The Apache Software Foundation creation of the Apache Geode (incubating) community to help foster ongoing development of the technology collaboratively with the open source community.
An unforgettable lineup of speakers & sessions
Geode Summit is the first time that committers and new users of Apache Geode can come together, and also meet with long standing users and developers of the commercial GemFire software.
The morning kicks off with an opening keynote from Justin Erenkrantz, head of compute architecture at Bloomberg. Justin is also well known for his mentoring and contributions to many open source projects in The Apache Software Foundation.
After his talk, Justin will serve as the moderator for a panel of noted industry pioneers, investors, and startup founders who are building the next generation of technologies for in-memory computing.
The amazing day continues with a track of 12 sessions by users, implementers, and developers of Apache Geode and GemFire. There’s an optional break out in the morning for developers looking to get introductory hands-on training in how to get started with Apache Geode.
Speakers from companies such as Ampool, Capgemini, CIBC, Data Torrent, Murex, Societe Generale, Southwest Airlines, TEKSystems, zData will share their experience building solutions with Geode and GemFire. Hear about use cases such as:
- real-time mobile apps
- streaming analytics
- fraud detection
- vehicle telematics
- financial risk computation
- adaptive logistics
- predictive analytics in manufacturing
