Hi Scott, NearCache works fast, except the first get request (NearCache pulls data from Cache). Avoid entity eviction by setting NearStartSize > size of the cache.
If this performance is not enough for you, try to make your own HashMap on the client side: 1. Init local HashMap after client node is connected. LifeCycleBean can help with that . 2. Configure Continuous Queries  to keep your HashMap up to date. Also, use threadsafe map implementation like ConcurrentHashMap.  https://apacheignite.readme.io/docs/ignite-life-cycle  https://apacheignite.readme.io/docs/continuous-queries Best Regards, Roman -- Sent from: http://apache-ignite-users.70518.x6.nabble.com/
