In-Memory Data Grid for Low Latency Applications
The best financial services organizations in the world hunt for milliseconds
of advantage in a competitive arms race for low latency
applications. This requires exceptional in-memory computing
performance. And yet they must also control software licensing
costs and consolidate infrastructure on reliable global standards.
Hazelcast is the leading open source In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG).
It is used as a distributed in-memory cache for:
- Algorithmic trading
- EOD & Intraday Risk
- Interest Rate Derivatives (IRD)
- Market Data Applications
- Financial Exchange
- Oracle Coherence Replacement
Because of the need for speed, organizations have become
increasingly dependent on large vendor proprietary solutions.
Hazelcast provides a commercially supported open source
alternative to proprietary IMDGs with rich feature-functionality and
superior ease and cost of ownership.
