Hazelcast Web Session Clustering provides a consistent user experience with no downtime.

web session clustering

Web and application servers can be made to scale out in order to handle huge loads by adding devices, such as a load balancer. This has a secondary effect of providing redundancy. However, for applications that use web sessions, if a server goes down and the load balancer moves the user to a new server, the session is lost, to the frustration of the user.

Hazelcast provides web session clustering, where user sessions are maintained in the Hazelcast IMDG cluster, using multiple copies for redundancy.

In the event of an application server failure, the load balancer redirects to a new application server that has access to the user session. The hand-off to the new application server is seamless for the user. This provides the highest level of customer experience.
