Many businesses are faced with some new data access challenges for modern applications, such as horizontal scalability of the data tier, heterogeneous data access methods, and extreme transaction processing. This presentation/demo will cover how businesses can overcome these data access challenges with the use of Spring and GemFire technologies. James will build a case for NoSQL, explain how SpringSource is making NoSQL easier via Spring-Gemfire and Spring-Data, explain how GemFire is a modern data access solution that takes a best of breed approach to managing data, and demonstrate GemFire in action the Spring/vFabric way.
