Hazelcast for eCommerce Caching
Hazelcast is ideal for large-scale eCommerce data platforms with burst behavior such as on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Hazelcast’s elastic clustering enables radical scale-out on commodity hardware which enables world-beating price/performance. Hazelcast is proven by one of the top eCommerce sites in the world and is in production at scales of hundreds of nodes, replacing Oracle Coherence and Memcached.
eCommerce is now in an era of radically multichannel and omnichannel stack deployments, with middleware supporting mobile, in-store environments, kiosk and web stores. To support the extreme scale and unpredictability of multichannel 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 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.
