Hazelcast Delivers Ultra-Fast Cloud Application Performance in IBM Cloud Pak for Applications

We are excited to announce that Hazelcast in-memory technologies are now available for sale from IBM with the IBM Cloud Pak™ for Applications.

The Hazelcast in-memory computing platform is an ultra-fast processing architecture for mission-critical applications where microseconds matter. The world’s most data-centric companies complement their systems of record, such as databases, with in-memory solutions that operate in near real-time to accelerate applications and microservices, such as payment processing, fraud detection, stream processing and more.

Built on Kubernetes and designed to run on Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Cloud Pak for Applications is one of five IBM Cloud Paks designed to provide a faster, more secure way to move core business applications to any cloud environment through enterprise-ready, cloud-native software.

“Clients are benefiting from a broad ecosystem of complementary services and technology, and the use of Hazelcast with IBM Cloud Pak for Applications can help them meet the high-performance requirements of mission-critical applications.” -Evaristus Mainsah, IBM

Enabling Mission-Critical Workloads in the Cloud

Migrating applications where low latency is not a requirement are often the starting point for enterprise cloud migration strategies. However, there is a general hesitation in migrating mission-critical and time-sensitive applications where low-latency is a high priority because of several variables, including region availability and physical infrastructure. Further complicating the migration could be inconsistent hardware from one cloud provider to another when employing a multi-cloud strategy.

Mirroring the run-anywhere capabilities of IBM Cloud Paks, the extremely lightweight footprint of the Hazelcast in-memory computing platform enables it to be embedded or deployed alongside an application to shrink latency to microseconds. As cloud strategies evolve, the Hazelcast platform can provide additional deployment flexibility for edge and microservice use cases.

“As they enter the next chapter of the cloud journey, businesses want a hybrid multi-cloud approach so they can manage their entire IT infrastructure, on and off-premises and across different clouds in a way that is simple, consistent and integrated,” said Evaristus Mainsah, General Manager of IBM Cloud Pak Ecosystem, IBM. “IBM Cloud Paks offer enterprises a cloud-native solution to quickly move core business applications to any cloud in a secure way. Clients are benefiting from a broad ecosystem of complementary services and technology, and the use of Hazelcast with IBM Cloud Pak for Applications can help them meet the high-performance requirements of mission-critical applications.”

Complete, Certified and Simple

IBM Cloud Pak for Applications is an enterprise-ready, containerized software solution for modernizing existing applications and developing new cloud-native apps that run on Red Hat OpenShift. For clients to continue innovating while meeting the technology standards and policies their company requires, IBM Cloud Pak for Applications delivers proven open source components, integrated with common operational services and built-in security.

Availability

The Hazelcast in-memory computing platform is available now as an option for enterprises deploying the IBM Cloud Pak for Applications. For more information on Hazelcast and IBM Cloud Pak for Applications, please visit the IBM Product Offering website.
