Use Cases for Function Execution

Use Cases for Function Execution

The function execution service provides solutions for these application use cases:
  • An application that executes a server-side transaction or carries out data updates using the GemFire distributed locking service.
  • An application that needs to initialize some of its components once on each server, which might be used later by executed functions.
  • Initialization and startup of a third-party service, such as a messaging service.
  • Any arbitrary aggregation operation that requires iteration over local data sets that can be done more efficiently through a single call to the cache server.
  • Any kind of external resource provisioning that can be done by executing a function on a server.
