Most powerful WAN-accelerated messaging solution combines with fastest in-memory data grid to drive efficiencies in the processing of global data workloads

Palo Alto, Calif., October 25, 2016Hazelcast, the leading open source in-memory data grid (IMDG) with hundreds of thousands of installed clusters and over 16 million server starts per month, and Solace, the leading provider of open data movement technology, today announced a new joint solution which enables multi-cloud and hybrid cloud replication of Hazelcast clusters for worldwide operation. It enables enterprise grade reliability, WAN scale-out and low latency cluster replication.

Hazelcast is frequently deployed in architectures where caching, scalability, performance, data sharing, redundancy and fault tolerance are essential. By combining Solace’s store and forward WAN messaging solution with Hazelcast, organizations can reduce WAN bandwidth costs, minimise data update propagation time and insulate their infrastructure from network or data center outages. The solution is ideal for companies who need real-time data to be current across diverse geographical areas as data values change. Example scenarios include financial institutions that synchronize real-time position books or risk data across global financial centers, and mobile carriers that need customer or operational data in-memory to provide a fast and seamless end user experience.

Solace integrates with Hazelcast nodes in an in-memory cluster to provide a distributed and decoupled publish/subscribe backbone that is optimized for efficient WAN synchronization. As data changes in a local Hazelcast node, an event is published once to the Solace fabric and immediately fanned out to the other nodes in the distributed cluster. Solace uses advanced compression, TCP protocol optimization and route optimization to maximize data throughput and minimize latency over the WAN.

Both Hazelcast and Solace are certified on Azure, AWS, Cloud Foundry and more. The Solace integration is available with Hazelcast Enterprise.

“Many businesses struggle to keep rapidly changing information in sync across their geographically distributed data centers,” said Denis King, SVP of Global Field Operations and Strategic Alliances of Solace. “Integrating Hazelcast’s fast and efficient in-memory data grid with our WAN-optimized messaging allows our mutual customers to conquer this challenge so they can improve decision-making and reduce operational risk.”

“Solace integration brings a further WAN distribution option to Hazelcast Enterprise beyond our existing socket-based WAN distribution, which gives customers more choice,” said Greg Luck, CEO of Hazelcast. “With the Solace backed WAN they get store-and-forward on the source datacentre side for low latency and greater tolerance to longer WAN and target data center outages, plus WAN scale out so that a source data center can send a event for all target data centers, and have it efficiently routed over the optimal networking paths.”
