The properties of an In-memory Data Grid (IMDG) lend themselves to solving many of the system challenges facing the financial sector today. Many organizations have become dependent on proprietary solutions from large vendors  as they try to reduce latencies. Hazelcast IMDG is a commercially supported open source alternative to these proprietary solutions, which is extremely fast and capable of processing millions of transactions per second.

Hazelcast IMDG is designed to provide high availability and scalability by distributing data across multiple machines. It is easy to work with and brings a highly resilient and elastic memory resource to applications and is also one of the most widely adopted open source solutions.

Greg Luck, CEO of Hazelcast, said: “Hazelcast IMDG is designed to deliver breakthrough application speed and consistent low latency, two critical elements in today’s ultra-competitive financial services market. Hazelcast IMDG fixes many of the performance and scalability issues that challenge  many financial institutions, enabling them to focus on new capabilities and revenue opportunities.”
