Over the past 4 years, Apptio has implemented and run a SaaS based hybrid in-memory/on-disk analytics and transaction store (no-sql) similar in concept to SAP's "HANA" in 100% Pure Java. I'll talk about lessons we've learned and tricks we've discovered while coding and tuning the system - everything from multi-threading on 48 cores with a 120 GB Java heap and architecting an elastic compute & data grid to tuning a GWT (Google Web Toolkit) application.
