In a world where speed is of the utmost importance, it has become apparent to me that there is a notion of relativity in latency. In other words, one needs a form of measurement - a time scale to understand how fast something really was and/or is.

With high frequency low latency trading as depicted in this video, milliseconds is the name of the game. A loss of 2 seconds, as an example, can be a matter of losing millions of dollars or prevention of a catastrophic financial event.  

In using this example, how can one feel what 2 milliseconds feels like? Can one tell the difference between 2 or 3 milliseconds? I find it fascinating that we as humans sometimes base what is fast or slow on what it feels like. In fact, how do you measure a feeling anyway? We usually have to compare (base line) to determine if something is really faster or slower. I would argue that it’s sometimes the results or effect of latency that…

Since occupying my new role as Product Manager, I became reacquainted with a tool where I can eject brain dumps of ideas and organize them into tasks and lists. There are many ways people use Trello to organize their life, but for me it was the flexibility and ease of use that captured my interest. I actually use Trello like a digital whiteboard to jot down ideas to keep me on task. If you are the type of person that uses or used to use post-it notes, then you might have an interest in a much more flexible digital version of the post-it note!! 

I know there are many tools…

With much respect and detail our PernixData engineers are interested in every facet of the customer experience. Something that may seem small to others can be a big deal to some. It’s with this that PernixData thinks about every feature in a holistic manner that all can appreciate. One such feature that fits this model is providing visual accessibility to those with color blindness. With 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women having some form of color blindness, it becomes important that the FVP UI is readable and understandable no matter the impediment.

In the previous post we were talking about the situation when an Ignite cluster is deployed in Google Compute Engine network and we need to have nodes auto-discovery mechanism.

Well, Apache Ignite has Compute Engine specific solution to fill this gap but what's about many others cloud platforms? What if I want to use AWS, Rackspace, GoGrid or other cloud provider?

Do you need to switch back to annoying and fragile static IP configuration? Luckily, the answer - you don't!

Since 1.1.0-incubating release Ignite has a so called TcpDiscoveryCloudIpFinder that supports a variety of cloud providers out of the box. Actually,…

This post I want to dedicate to one useful feature of Apache Ignite that I had a chance to contribute to the project and that became a part of it since release 1.1.0-incubating.

Actually, this will be my first post about this Apache project and for those who are unfamiliar with it I would recommend to overview a good quick start documentation that can be found here.

The feature I'm going to cover is related to nodes discovery process located in a cluster in case when the cluster is a set of virtual machines deployed on Google Compute Engine. Historically Apache Ignite offered us two ways for the discovery process - leveraging multicast protocol or pre-configuring nodes' IP addresses. Unfortunately, neither way works well for Google VMs (virtual machines) instances:…

In Memory Computing Blog Series
Part 1: In Memory Computing - A Walk Down Memory Lane

In the series’ previous post we took a walk down memory lane and reviewed the evolution of In Memory Computing (IMC) over the last few decades. In this blog post we will deep dive into a couple of specific implementations of IMC to better understand both the innovations that have happened to date and their limitations.

The Buffer Cache

Buffer caches, also sometimes referred to as page caches, have existed in operating systems and databases for decades now. A buffer cache can be described a piece of RAM set aside for caching frequently accessed data so that one can avoid disk accesses. Performance, of course, improves the more one can leverage the buffer cache for data…
