About this Episode

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud-native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.

On this week's episode we speak with GridGain CEO Abe Kleinfeld who writes this week on The New Stack about how in-memory computing is helping many organizations solve their speed and scale challenges. In the past three decades Kleinfeld has led several companies through successful liquidity events including three mergers and two IPOs. And since he joined GridGain in 2013 the company has averaged triple-digit annual sales growth and been ranked the second fastest growing private company in Silicon Valley.

GridGain has an open source in-memory computing platform built on Apache Ignite.  In memory computing (IMC) is seeing surging adoption, as Kleinfeld writes on The New Stack this week. IMC technology itself is also evolving. A memory-centric architecture offers greater flexibility and improved ROI for a range of data-intensive use cases. This has the potential to further accelerate the adoption of IMC.
