Databaseless Data Processing with EclipseStore and WebSphere Liberty InstantOn

Track: JakartaEE
More and more companies and organizations are using AI, ML, VR and big data in the cloud. 3 factors are most critical for all of them: high performance, low data storage costs, and simple, fast and cost-efficient implementation and maintenance. Traditional databases and persistence frameworks worked well so far, however for the beginning AI age they are too slow, implementing is complex, and databases are too expensive in the cloud. That's why many innovative companies such as online banks or gaming companies have built their individual high-performance systems with pure Java with high effort to meet their requirements. Now, with EclipseStore there is a leight-weight and easy to use framework. EclipseStore enables databaseless high-performance in-memory data processing for modern cloud-native Java applications and microservices. It lets you store any Java object graph of any size and complexity seamlessly into any cloud binary data storage. Users benefit from ultra-fast in-memory data processing, up to 1000x faster queries, up to 99% cloud database cost savings, and unrivaled simplicity. WebSphere Liberty InstantOn enables EclipseStore cluster nodes starting in milliseconds without the need for using GraalVM native images.
