  • Caching - Hazelcast Enterprise HD on ICP

    Caching - Hazelcast Enterprise HD on ICP


    A cache stores data so requests can be served faster. If requested data is cached, this request is served by reading the cache. Otherwise, the data must be recomputed from its original, slower location e.g. a database, mainframe, or service API.


    Hazelcast IMDG® enables organizations to scale through in-memory access to data. Data is stored in an elastically scalable data grid so networks can dynamically cluster, pooling memory and processors to accelerate application performance.

  • Microservice Data Cache - Hazelcast Enterprise HD on ICP

    Microservice Data Cache - Hazelcast Enterprise HD on ICP


    Hazelcast IMDG® creates an easily deployed and managed Microservices infrastructure. Complex, back-end infrastructure, geographically distributed teams, and critical up-time requirements make Microservices architecture a highly viable approach.


    Advantages: 1) Decomposing a complex system into smaller pieces allows services to be deployed or replaced in isolation 2) Inter-operating services are more resilient 3) Flexibility – appropriate technology stacks can be used per Microservice.
