The GigaSpaces University

Our training classes focus on designing your applications to be scalable and robust from day 1. Using the GigaSpaces XAP platform, you will learn various best practices to make your application future proof and utilize the rich feature set of the XAP platform. You will do this by leveraging existing skills with popular development frameworks and APIs such as J2EE, Spring and Hibernate.

We hold both public and on-site training classes. Public training courses are held regularly at different locations within the US and EMEA, whereas on-site classes are held on demand at your preferred location.


We also offer a hands-on introduction to In-Memory Compute workshop in various locations. Find a workshop nearest you and join us.

Designing for Massive Scalability in the Cloud

Audience: Architects & CTOs

Duration:3-4 Hours

Trying to build a massively-scalable system? Wondered how “the big guys”, such as Google, Twitter and Facebook, are doing that? Debated how to use NoSQL, Big Data, Map/Reduce and their contemporaries? This is the workshop for you!

  • In this workshop you will learn how to design your enterprise systems to be highly-available and linearly-scalable under massive loads and challenging low-latency requirements with GigaSpaces platforms.
  • You will achieve that by employing well-proven patterns used by massively-scalable systems such as Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook, and leveraging on the most recent developments in scalable architectures, such as Map/Reduce, NoSQL and Big Data.
  • You will learn how to build your enterprise system using open-source stack such as JBoss, Tomcat, Cassandra and HBase, making the end-to-end stack highly-available and scalable as a single cohesive solution.
  • You will learn how to onboard your end-to-end stack to a cloud of your choice while keeping your system cloud-agnostic.
  • You will learn how your production system can be migrated in a gradual and controlled manner from legacy architecture to a scalable future-proof architecture, using simple best practices and methodology.
  • You will examine different common meta-use-cases seen across various enterprise systems in E-Commerce, Financial Services, Telco, Healthcare, and others, and discuss effective architectures to satisfy these use cases.


Real-Time Analytics for Big-Data

Audience: Architects & CTOs

Duration:3-4 Hours

Do you have a Big Data system with streaming data? Do you need to perform real-time analytics on the streaming data? Did you realize that today’s solutions like Hadoop & others cannot provide the real-time portion of the analytics you need? Wondered how the big guys, such as Google, Twitter and Facebook do it? If you answered yes to any of these questions…then this is the workshop for you!

  • In this workshop, we will review the common patterns and architecture that drive these platforms
  • We will learn how to build a Twitter-like analytics system in a simple way using frameworks such as Spring Social, Active In-Memory Data Grid for Big Data event processing, and NoSQL database such as Cassandra or Hbase for handling the management of the historical data.
  • We will examine a Twitter analytics reference application, down to design and the code level.
