Hazelcast IMDG is a clustered, in-memory data-grid that manages application data and distributes processing using in-memory storage and parallel execution for breakthrough application speed and scale. In this Quick Start Guide, learn what an in-memory data grid can be used for, how to do simple query operations with Hazelcast IMDG, what sharing means with Hazelcast, and more. This paper is intended for software architects and developers who are planning or building systems requiring distribute infrastructure for application scalability and performance.
Microservices, as an architectural approach, has shown a great deal of benefit over the legacy style of monolithic single applications. Nevertheless, microservices are not without their drawbacks. The purpose of this white paper is to show first steps for using Spring Boot and Hazelcast IMDG® contribute to the microservices landscape, enhancing the benefits and alleviating some of the common downsides.
This white paper, written by Java Champion Ben Evans, provides an introduction for architects and developers to Hazelcast®’s distributed computing technology.

Future Grid works with several Australian utility companies to automate the processing of sensor and smart meter data which crosses energy networks. Their customers are collecting approximately 3 billion data points per day. In terms of daily post processing, this equates to 20 billion records as each record has multiple, individual data points –a massive scaling challenge. To make the most of this information, utility organizations need a real-time data aggregation and processing solution which enables them to make complex real-time decisions.
When Future Grid first tried to solve this problem, it used traditional relational databases. However, it soon became apparent traditional databases couldn’t cope with huge volumes of data in real-time, main issue being that they can’t execute algorithms against incoming data fast enough. Future Grid then decided to build its own solution combining Hazelcast IMDG® with Apache Cassandra’s persistence data store capabilities.
This case study tells the story of how Future Grid built its data platform and the primary use cases of their customers including:
