Software AG Terracotta Replacement
Enterprises who are considering a Software AG Terracotta Replacement should take a look at Hazelcast, which should be able to provide a great deal of functionality with a much improved ownership experience. Hazelcast is a popular Terracotta Ehcache replacement and also a popular open source Terracotta DSO replacement.
Developers are often attracted to Enterprise Ehcache because of its use of the popular Ehcache project. Ehcache is a solid open source project and so it’s attractive to consider the possibility of an enterprise-grade option. For users who require fully distributed caching, we would ask to be considered.
Just Give It a Try
Whenever anyone asks us about competitive products, we are happy to name them and suggest that users try them. We think after trying them all you will love Hazelcast the most.
We are hearing from evaluators that there are important evaluation criteria that go beyond product features. Some of these considerations that we have heard around Software AG Terracotta are:
Cost: Software AG products are considered expensive.
Entry Point: The minimum price to do business with Software AG is often too high to many organizations to get the benefits of their professional products.
Ownership Experience: Hazelcast is open source software resulting in a much easier ownership model.
Terracotta is a somewhat dissimilar product to Hazelcast, but they do provide enough overlapping capability that it’s possible to use one instead of the other. For example, Hazelcast Enterprise Edition’s Elastic Memory function is useful in scale up configurations that are similar to those used for Terracotta Big Memory.
Again, your experience may be very different from the above, but if you are able to deploy open source software at your organization, we ask that you give Hazelcast a try to see if it would be suitable for you.
