One of the features in GridGain’s In-Memory Data Platform that often goes unspoken for is ability to launch multiple GridGain nodes in the single JVM. Now, as trivial as it sounds… can you start multiple JBoss or WebLogic or Infinisnap or Gigaspaces or Coherence or (gulp) Hadoop 100% independent runtimes in the single JVM? The answer is no.

As I mentioned – you can launch as many GridGain nodes as you need in the single JVM.

Needless to say that w... (more)

One Line of Code

In 1999, one of the most notable brands of the dot-com era – a name almost synonymous with the “World Wide Web” itself – made a bid to dominate the entire ecommerce market for individual, small and mid-size businesses. They spent roughly a half BILLION dollars on key acquisitions, and actually had a real shot at success. At that time, the market for SMB ecommerce was pretty much wide open. This company could have garnered the whole thing. Using the technologies and services they had acquired, people could fairly easily setup their own online stores complete with product catalog an...
