Hazelcast for E-Commerce Caching

Hazelcast® is ideal for large-scale e-commerce data platforms with burst behavior such as on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Hazelcast IMDG® elastic clustering enables radical scale-out on commodity hardware which enables world-beating price/performance. Hazelcast is proven by one of the top e-commerce sites in the world and is in production at scales of hundreds of nodes, replacing Oracle Coherence and Memcached.

E-commerce is now in an era of radically multichannel and omni-channel stack deployments, with middleware supporting mobile, in-store environments, kiosk and web stores. To support the extreme scale and unpredictability of multi-channel consumer behavior while at the same time providing microsecond performance characteristics requires in-memory technology. Multiple channels supported on the same middleware stack can result in complex scaling characteristics and having a significant distributed cache that can handle terabytes of main memory becomes a requirement. At this scale, the full product catalog can be pulled into distributed memory across your application server cluster, thus providing high speed access to data.

Hazelcast IMDG is in use at the top financial services companies in the world for securities trading, so you can be confident that Hazelcast is a proven performer in transaction processing and can deliver performance globally and reliably.

Swanson Health Products

Our story began in Fargo, ND in 1969, when a man with a passion for golf was looking to lessen his joint pain. He set off on a journey into the world of natural supplements and health research, nurturing a deep commitment to wellness and life-long vitality. This commitment grew into a mission, a mission to share pure and potent health products directly with others, at a great value. And so, in 1969, Swanson Health introduced its first supplement to the world.

Nearly 50 years later, Swanson Health continues to innovate science-backed vitamins and supplements, delivering wellness solutions that help people live simply healthier together.
