Announcing Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 7.0 Beta

We are very excited to announce availability of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid (JDG) Version 7.0 Beta!

Based on the Infinispan project, JBoss Data Grid is a leading high-performance, highly-scalable, in-memory NoSQL store, which enables your enterprise to make fast, accurate decisions on large volumes of changing data and provides superior user experience for your customer-facing applications.

JDG 7.0 Beta introduces major new features in the areas of Real-time Data Analytics, ease of use and administration, and expanded polyglot support.

Real-Time Data Analytics

  • Distributed Streams: In JDG 7.0, we introduce a distributed version of the Java 8 Stream API which enables you to perform rich analytics operations on data stored in JDG using the functional expressions available in the Stream API.
  • Apache Spark and Hadoop Integration: JDG 7.0 features a new Resilient Distributed Dataset (RDD) and DStream integration with Apache Spark version 1.6. This enables you to use JDG as a highly scalable, high-performance data source for Apache Spark, executing Spark and Spark Streaming operations on data stored in JDG. We have also added a Hadoop InputFormat/OutputFormat integration, which enables use of tools from the Hadoop ecosystem on data stored in JDG.
  • Remote Task Execution: JDG 7.0 features the ability to execute tasks (business logic) on a JDG server from the Java Hot Rod client. The task can be expressed as a Java executable loaded on the JDG server or as a stored JavaScript procedure which executes on the Java 8 (Nashorn) scripting engine on the JDG server.

Ease of Use and Administration

In JDG 7.0, we have released a new administration console which enables you to view a JDG cluster and perform clustered operations across its nodes. Operations include creating new caches and cache templates, adding or removing nodes, and deploying or executing remote tasks. We have also added the ability to shut down or restart a cluster in a controlled manner, with data restore from persistent storage.

Expanded Polyglot Support

Node.js Hot Rod client: JDG 7.0 introduces a new Node.js (JavaScript) Hot Rod client, which enables you to use JDG as a high performance distributed in-memory NoSQL store from Node.js applications.

Cassandra Cache Store

Additionally, JDG 7.0 introduces a new out-of-the-box Cassandra cache store, which enables you to persist the entries of a distributed cache on a shared Apache Cassandra instance.
