A new press release states, “Hazelcast, the leading in-memory computing platform that delivers the System of Now™, announced today that its in-memory data grid features optimizations for Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory, which provides increased data density and more cost-efficient access to in-memory speeds. The latest update to Hazelcast IMDG also improves performance, scalability and reliability for mission-critical, time-sensitive workloads. ‘The embrace of ultra-low latency computing is quickly becoming a defining element for signaling whether an enterprise is a leader or laggard in this data-centric world,’ said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Hazelcast. ‘With support for Intel Optane, Hazelcast continues our industry leadership providing continued advancements for large enterprises to leverage in-memory computing to power business-critical applications at the lowest possible latency and accelerate their businesses’.”
The release continues, “In September 2019, Hazelcast and Intel announced Project Veyron, a co-engineering initiative to accelerate high-performance computing for real-time applications, artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT) solutions. In collaboration with Intel, Hazelcast is introducing support for Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory, which enterprises can leverage as a more scalable and cost-effective alternative to RAM. With certified support for Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory, Hazelcast is enabling customers to cost-effectively scale larger in-memory workloads. Compared to RAM, Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory provides higher data density, which when paired with Hazelcast allows organizations to run more workloads in-memory. As an example, payment processors can increase the number of fraud detection algorithms to further prevent illegitimate transactions, while also reducing the number of false positives. Furthermore, when deployed in persistence mode, Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory and Hazelcast provide advanced resiliency by enabling fast recovery upon temporary node outages.”
