Pivotal GemFire has had a long and winding journey, starting in 2002, winding through VMware, Pivotal, and finding it’s way to Apache in 2015.  Companies using GemFire have deployed it in some of the most mission critical time sensitive applications in their enterprises, making sure tickets are purchased in a timely fashion, hotel rooms are booked, trades are made, and credit card transactions are cleared. Come to this session to understand:
  • A brief history of GemFire
  • Architecture and use cases
  • Why we are taking GemFire Open Source
  • Design philosophy and principles
But most importantly: how you can join this exciting community to work on the bleeding edge in-memory platform.
