In the past, I had reported on the Data Grid component of Apache Ignite, but the focus of my research in CS 528 (Advanced Parallel Computing) and CS 598 (Masters Project) will be the Apache Ignite Compute Grid.
The compute grid is a cluster of resources that can be used to perform distributed computations. The diagram above depicts the flow of the compute grid. Computations are sent to the distributed cluster, and then results are aggregated when available. More to come soon!
