Guarantee your single computation task to be finished in case of node failures/crash in apache Ignite


How to guarantee your single computation task is guaranteed to failover in case of node failures in apache Ignite ?

As you know failover support in apache ignite for computation tasks is only covered for master slave jobs where slave nodes will do computations then reduce back to the master node , and in case of any failure in slave nodes where slave jobs are executing , then it that failed slave job will fail over to another node to continue execution .

Ok what about if I need to execute just single computation task and I need to have failover guarantee due may be it is a critical task that do financial data modification or must finished task in an acceptable status (Success or Failure) , how we can do that ? it is not supported out of the box by Ignite but we can have a small design extension using Ignite APIs to cover the same , HOW ?

Code reference is hosted into my github :
