Ellie Mae Chooses Hazelcast for its Stability, Performance, Durability, and Scalability

Case Study

Learn how Ellie Mae, a leading provider of innovative on-demand software solutions and services for the residential mortgage industry, found a solution in Hazelcast IMDG that enabled them to achieve horizontal scale while continuing to deliver on service level agreements (SLA), allowing them to effectively service larger and more demanding customers.

The Challenge

As Ellie Mae scaled Encompass®, its all-in-one mortgage management solution, through more powerful, larger-scale hardware systems to meet ever growing customer demand, increasing costs became a cause for concern. Ellie Mae had to continue to innovate in order to stay ahead of the game. They searched for a way to make their already great solution even better; to help them reduce costs, improve infrastructure utilization, and offer additional fault tolerance.

They identified two key areas for improvement – performance and scalability.

The Solution

Hazelcast replaced Ellie Mae’s home grown caching solution to better serve Ellie Mae’s constantly increasing business demands in a highly available and consistent infrastructure.
