A new press release reports, “Hazelcast, the leading in-memory computing platform, today announced the availability of Hazelcast Cloud Enterprise on Amazon Web Services (AWS), a low-latency deployment of Hazelcast software as a managed service designed to improve the performance, security and ease of management of cloud-based applications. Featuring built-in security and a cloud-agnostic architecture, Hazelcast Cloud Enterprise exceeds the speed, scale, security, and high-availability capabilities of existing commoditized cloud data store services today, especially for large-scale enterprise deployments. According to recent research in collaboration with Intel, IT decision-makers identified cloud application performance (40%) as the number one opportunity to unlock profits, with financial services (49%), telecommunications (42%) and e-commerce (40%) ranking it the highest among verticals surveyed. However, security (97%) and performance (90%) were cited as two of the top challenges when migrating to the cloud.”
The release goes on, “Hazelcast maintains both the software and cloud infrastructure, enabling rapid uptime and freeing customers to focus on developing innovative, business-critical applications. Hazelcast Cloud Enterprise runs the Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise HD edition, providing customers with advanced features that include high-density scale, over-the-wire encryption and replication/failover capabilities that safeguard against single-zone failures. ‘While the financial model of the cloud is attractive, for many mission-critical applications it presents an unacceptable tradeoff due to the negative business impact of application performance degradation,’ said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Hazelcast. ‘With Hazelcast Cloud Enterprise, customers now gain the winning combination of the cloud financial model coupled with the required application performance and maximum resilience for business continuity’.”
