DataMapper on Infinispan: Clustered NoSQL

TorqueBox is a Ruby application server built on top of JBoss AS7 that extends the footprint of Ruby applications to include built-in support for services such as messaging, scheduling, and daemons. Infinispan is an extremely scalable, highly available data grid platform, designed to make the most of modern multi-processor/multi-core architectures while at the same time providing distributed cache capabilities. DataMapper is an Object Relational Mapper for Ruby. TorqueBox brings the two together to provide a fast, scalable, distributed NoSQL data store for your Ruby applications. In this presentation, I will take a brief look at each of these technologies and combine them with Sinatra to create a super awesome beer catalogue.
