Hazelcast - In-Memory Data Grid

Hazelcast is an open source clustering and highly scalable data
distribution platform
for Java.


Hazelcast is an open source clustering and highly scalable data distribution platform
for Java, which is:


  • Lightening-fast; thousands of operations per sec.

  • Fail-safe; no losing data after crashes.

  • Dynamically scales as new servers added.

  • Super-easy to deploy and use (include a single jar).

Hazelcast is pure Java. JVMs that are running Hazelcast will dynamically cluster. Although by default
Hazelcast will use multicast for discovery, it can also be configured to only use TCP/IP for
environments where multicast is not available or preferred.
