Infinispan is a highly scalable open source data grid platform, and has originally been used to alleviate stress on RDBMSs. Increasingly, it is also used as a NoSQL data store, especially on ephemeral cloud nodes where reliability of disk is not guaranteed. This talk, by Infinispan founder and project lead Manik Surtani, takes the audience through the raisons d'etre of both data grids and NoSQL, and analyses where the two intersect. After this introduction to scalable storage, Surtani introduces Infinispan, and takes the audience on a tour of Infinispan's public APIs, detailing how to configure and interact with Infinispan, as well as through best practices and recipes.
