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[1] or any non-java applications[2] can use it as remote service through TCP/IP.[3]

History[edit]

Infinispan is the successor of JBoss Cache. The project was announced in 2009.

Features[edit]

Usage[edit]

Typical use-cases for Infinispan include:

Infinispan is also used in academia and research as a framework for distributed execution and storage.

  • Cloud2Sim[5] leverages Infinispan for its distributed execution of MapReduce workflows and simulations.
  • MEDIator data sharing synchronization platform for medical image archives[6] leverages Infinispan as its distributed in-memory storage, as well as distributed execution framework.
  • Cassowary[7] uses Infinispan to store the context information in-memory, in order to provide the middleware platform for context-aware smart buildings.
