Overview

Overview

Hazelcast has run performance benchmarks against GridGain and makes the following assertions:

  • Hazelcast consistently outperforms Gridgain at scale. Benchmarks show that Hazelcast has up to 90% more throughput with lower latencies.
  • Published benchmarks by GridGain are flawed. GridGain benchmarks used different configurations between their technology and Hazelcast, unfairly skewing the results. In fair and equivalent tests, Hazelcast shows a significant performance advantage over GridGain.
  • Hazelcast is committed to delivering high performance. Hazelcast strives for fair benchmarks and welcomes independent benchmarking. Hazelcasts not only publishes benchmark results but also documents the environment and test tools so anyone can confirm the performance advantage themselves.
