Infinispan Native Server Image

Starting with Infinispan 11, it’s now possible to create a natively compiled version of the Infinispan server.

TL;DR

We have a new image that contains a natively compiled Infinispan server and has a footprint of only 286MB. Try it now:

docker run -p 11222:11222 quay.io/infinispan/server-native:11.0

Infinispan Quarkus Extensions

Quarkus provides built in support for generating native executables, providing several abstractions to improve the development experience of creating native binaries. Building upon the new server, the Infinispan team have created a Quarkus extension for both embedded and server use-cases. These extensions allow a native binary version of the server to be compiled and ran by simply executing:

mvn clean install -Dnative
./server-runner/target/infinispan-quarkus-server-runner-11.0.0.Final-runner
    -Dquarkus.infinispan-server.config-file=infinispan.xml \
    -Dquarkus.infinispan-server.config-path=server/conf \
    -Dquarkus.infinispan-server.data-path=data \
    -Dquarkus.infinispan-server.server-path=/opt/infinispan &

Native Server Image

For many developers compiling your own Infinispan native binary manually is not desirable, therefore we provide the infinispan/server-native image that uses a native server binary. The advantage of this over our JVM based infinispan/server image is that we can no provide a much smaller image, 286 vs 468 MB, as we no longer need to include an openjdk JVM in the image.

The server-native image is configured exactly the same as the JVM based infinispan/server image. We can run an authenticated Infinispan server with a single user with the following command:

docker run -p 11222:11222 -e USER="user" -e PASS="pass" quay.io/infinispan/server-native:11.0

From the output below, you can see the Quarkus banner as well various io.quarkus logs indicating which extensions are being used.
