The key capability that is quite unique and sets it apart from most data solutions today is Hazelcast’s ability to combine compute and data storage in the same cluster processes.
The Hazelcast Platform is the evolution of a distributed computing and storage initiative that has been running since 2008 as an open source project. If you have heard of Hazelcast, it’s likely you’ll recall it as being an in-memory store and this was one of its early use cases. Its popularity rose from it being a very easy-to-implement solution to the problem of slow databases.
It is a well-regarded piece of software with nearly five thousand stars on GitHub and around 100 million server starts per month at the time of writing. It is used in some of the most business-critical systems in the world, from credit card transaction processing to train monitoring and scheduling. There’s a pretty good chance you’re interacting with a system built using Hazelcast almost every day.
