Hazelcast is an in-memory computing platform that runs applications with extremely high throughput and low latency requirements. It offers speed, scale, simplicity, resiliency, and security in a distributed architecture. It is comprised of an in-memory data grid and a distributed stream processing engine that work together to run many types of data processing workloads. The data grid (IMDG) pools RAM together across a cluster to deliver data accesses faster than in-memory databases. The stream processing engine (Jet) offers higher throughput and lower latency than other popular stream processing engines.
Hazelcast is open source software available for download at hazelcast.org. Hazelcast also provides an enterprise version that adds advanced levels of capabilities around business continuity, security, and scalability.
Hazelcast has an optimized, multi-threaded architecture that enables the highest throughput and lowest latency at scale in data processing applications. The documented benchmarks show its advantage over similar technologies. Hazelcast also offers a significant performance advantage in data processing pipelines, thanks to the tight integration of in-memory storage with a high-speed stream processing engine.
