Apache Ignite Momentum: Highlights from 2020-2021

September 14, 2021 by Denis Magda. Share in Facebook, Twitter

When Apache Ignite entered the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Incubator in 2014, it took less than a year for the project and its community to graduate from the Incubator and become a top-level project for the ASF. Since then, Ignite has experienced a significant and steady growth in popularity, and it has been used by thousands of application developers and architects to create high-performance and scalable applications used by millions of people daily. In this article, we’ll recap the achievements of Ignite in 2020-2021.

Ignite is Ranked as a Top 5 Project

The ASF has ranked Apache ignite as a Top 5 project in various categories since 2017. That year, Ignite was in the Top 5 of Apache Project Repositories by Commits and most active Apache mailing lists. Today, the momentum continues, and Ignite continues to be ranked as a Top 5 project in multiple categories: second on the Top 5 big data user lists, third on the Top 5 big data dev lists, second on the Top 5 of all user lists, third on the Top 5 repos by size.

Apache Ignite 2.4 ings Advanced Machine Learning and Spark DataFrames Capabilities

Usually, Ignite community rolls out a new version once in 3 months, but we had to make an exception for Apache Ignite 2.4 that consumed five months in total. We could easily blame Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays for the delay and would be forgiven, but, in fact, we were forging the release you can't simply pass by.

Let's dive in and search for a big fish.

Machine Learning General Availability

Eight months ago, at the time of Apache Ignite 2.0, we put out the first APIs that formed the foundation of the Ignite's machine learning component of today. Since that time, Ignite machine learning experts and enthusiasts have been moving the liary to the general availability condition meticulously. And Ignite 2.4 became a milestone that let us consider the ML Grid to be production ready.

Apache Ignite 2.3 - More SQL and Persistence Capabilities

November 1, 2017 by Denis Magda. Share in Facebook, Twitter

Putting aside the regular bug fixes and performance optimizations, the Apache Ignite 2.3 release brings new SQL capabilities and Ignite persistence improvements that are worth mentioning.


Let's start with SQL first.

Apache Ignite users have consistently told us that despite all of Ignite’s SQL capabilities, it’s been at times challenging trying to figure out how to start using Ignite as an SQL database.

This was mostly caused by scattered documentation pages, lack of “getting started” guides and tutorials. We’ve remedied this oversight! All related SQL knowledge has been curated in a single documentation domain.
