Ignite has been in Apache for over a year already, and prior to that it was
part of GridGain open source edition for over 5 years. It is definitely a
mature codebase with 100s of customers around the world using it in
production, including some very large well known banks.

Currently, GridGain is probably the main company providing enterprise-level
support as well as additional enterprise features for Apache Ignite.

As I mentioned above, Ignite is being used by many large customers,
including some very large banks. In many installations Ignite is replacing
products like Oracle Coherence, Pivotal Gemfire, IBM ExtremeScale, etc.

Ignite is an in-memory data grid providing in-memory key-value data storage
partitioned across the cluster, while Cassandra is mainly a disk-based
system. Performance-wise, Ignite should be an order of magnitude faster than

Unlike Cassandra, Ignite provides fully-ACID fault-tolerant transactions
within the cluster. 

Ignite also provides ANSI-99 SQL querying capability, including distributed
joins, across the clustered data.
