Infinispan is a distributed cache and key-value NoSQL data store software developed by Red Hat. Java applications can embed it as library, use it as a service in WildFly or any non-java applications can use it as remote service through TCP/IP.
Infinispan is the successor of JBoss Cache. The project was announced in 2009.
- Support for LRU and LIRS eviction algorithms
- Through plugable architecture, infinispan is able to persist data to filesystem, relational databases with JDBC, LevelDB, NoSQL databases like MongoDB, Apache Cassandra or HBase and others.
Typical use-cases for Infinispan include:
- Distributed cache, often in front of a database
- Storage for temporal data, like web sessions
- In-memory data processing and analytics
- Cross-JVM communication and shared storage
- MapReduce Implementation in the In-Memory Data Grid.
Infinispan is also used in academia and research as a framework for distributed execution and storage.
- Cloud2Sim leverages Infinispan for its distributed execution of MapReduce workflows and simulations.
- MEDIator data sharing synchronization platform for medical image archives leverages Infinispan as its distributed in-memory storage, as well as distributed execution framework.
- Cassowary uses Infinispan to store the context information in-memory, in order to provide the middleware platform for context-aware smart buildings.
