Accelerating the System of Now

June 18, 2019
Accelerating the System of Now

The megatrends that have been driving the adoption of Hazelcast by the world’s largest organizations are now strikingly clear:

  • Enterprises are awash in data and must leverage it for business advantage
  • New applications must process stored and streaming data
  • Application latency is the new downtime. The money is in the microseconds

To meet these needs data processing must move beyond the RPM speeds of disk-based systems and into the megahertz speeds of in-memory computing. After more than a decade of adoption of Big Data, the new business advantage is now being found in Fast Data.

That’s why it’s time for the System of NowTM.

In just the first four months of 2019, Hazelcast introduced three new releases: Hazelcast IMDG 3.12, Hazelcast Cloud, and Hazelcast Jet 3.0.

From experience we know we can stand the System of Now up against any other system in the world and prove our clear advantage. Critically, and where others frequently fail, we do this with the highest resiliency and data integrity. For these reasons the business value delivered is unparalleled.

Together these elements comprise the System of Now, the world’s only in-memory computing platform that can process both stored and streaming data, with the lowest possible latency, at any scale, anywhere. The System of Now is designed to meet the new data-intensive requirements without requiring the replacement of the legacy systems of record, such as databases, already in place.

Our customers’ stories are all the evidence that’s needed, whether it’s Capital One outlining how to implement a highly resilient, in-memory architecture in AWS, the automated merchandising suggestions for e-commerce shoppers, the modernized ML-driven customer self-service portal, or the payment processing being conducted on streams of data that haven’t even been stored yet… the list goes on. What they all have in common is they all leverage the same in-memory computing platform – the only one that delivers radically fast performance at any scale, for both stored and streaming data.

From experience we know we can stand the System of Now up against any other system in the world and prove our clear advantage. Critically, and where others frequently fail, we do this with the highest resiliency and data integrity. For these reasons the business value delivered is unparalleled.

We have been growing our investment in our company aggressively over the past year. Our recently-announced round of growth funding gives us the resources to accelerate our plans across multiple fronts:

The Hazelcast team is grateful for and humbled by the opportunity to serve hundreds of commercial customers worldwide. We look forward to driving a faster pace of meaningful innovation and helping them and many more with their journey through the in-memory computing era.

It’s time to focus on the microseconds. It’s time for the System of Now.
