Manik Surtani will present “Infinspan, Data Grids and Cloud Storage” – A use-case driven talk on Infinispan, an LGPL licensed data grid platform for use as a distributed data cache, low-latency in-memory object database and cloud-ready datastore. This talk will focus on several popular usage patterns, explaining how these usage patterns work their way into common software designs we see today, and how the use of a data grid can bring benefits. For each pattern, specific details on setting up and tuning Infinispan to serve such a purpose will be discussed. The format will include a presentation and some sample code.

Manik Surtani is a core R&D engineer at JBoss, a division of Red Hat. He is the founder of the Infinispan project, which he currently leads. He is also the spec lead of JSR 347 (Data Grids for the Java Platform), and represents Red Hat on the Expert Group of JSR 107 (Temporary caching for Java). His interests lie in cloud and distributed computing, autonomous systems and highly available computing. He has a background in artificial intelligence and neural networks, a field he left behind when he moved from academic circles to the commercial world. Since then, he’s been working with Java-related technologies, first for a startup focusing on knowledge management and information exchange, and later for a large London-based consultancy as a tech lead focused on e-commerce applications on large Java EE and peer-to-peer technology. Surtani is a strong proponent of open source development methodologies, ethos, and collaborative processes, and has been involved in open source since his first forays into computing.
