Since Apache Geode is implemented in Java, data serialization has always been an important topic for discussion when designing an Apache Geode cluster. Different data serialization techniques and configurations have a direct impact on the performance of Apache Geode cluster and Day 2 operations.
In this session, we'll cover Apache Geode’s data serialization concepts, configurations, and impact to the implementation style of server-side components that will be deployed to an Apache Geode cluster. We'll use Pivotal Cloud Cache as an example for specific configurations that improve developer experiences, cluster performance, and Day 2 operations. Furthermore, we'll use a CI/CD pipeline to showcase the deployment of data model changes without the need to restart the Apache Geode cluster but still maintain the "Strong Type" programming preference.
