Our story

Hazelcast's journey began with a vision – to tackle slow response times in business apps. So we built an ultra-fast data store, embraced real-time stream processing and ML inference, and voila! Our unified platform was born.

Our mission? Empower businesses with fast and intelligent data solutions that take instant action, elevate customer experience, boost efficiency, mitigate risks, and unlock new revenue streams.

Our evolution to a unified real-time data platform

Hazelcast was founded in 2012 with a focus on reimagining fast data access. We started by creating the world’s most advanced in-memory data grid (IMDG). During this process we first identified the transformative potential of processing data in real-time, before saving it to a database. Thus began our efforts to develop the first and most functional unified real-time data platform.
