Apache Distributed Cache refers to caching solutions provided by the Apache Foundation, which include Apache Ignite and Apache Geode. These are memory-centric platforms used for transactional, analytical, and caching workloads enabling in-memory speed and massive scalability.
Here's a basic guide on setting up Apache Ignite as an example of Apache Distributed Cache.
You can extract the Apache Ignite binary using the following command
This will create a directory named
Navigate to the
bin directory inside the extracted folder and execute the
ignite.sh (for Linux/Mac) or
ignite.bat (for Windows) script.
Once you execute the script, an Ignite node will get started.
To use Ignite as a distributed cache, you need to configure the cache first. Here is an example of a simple cache configuration:
After the cache configuration, you can use Ignite's cache API to interact with the distributed cache:
Please note that this is a simplified version of the setup process. For production environments, more complex configurations might be necessary.
