Hazelcast, Inc., home of the real-time data platform, is introducing the beta release of a new serverless offering under its Viridian cloud portfolio, dubbed Hazelcast Viridian Serverless.
The platform enables companies to take immediate action on real-time data by speeding app development, simplifying provisioning, and enabling flexible and robust integration of real-time data into applications, according to the vendor.
Viridian Serverless is a self-service provisioning process where no up-front sizing planning is needed because the cluster grows and shrinks automatically based on the workload. Users get quick access to a horizontally scalable real-time data platform that includes a high-speed data store and stream processing capabilities.
To celebrate the launch, Hazelcast will provide users with a limited time offer of up to 2 Gibibytes (GiB) of data storage at no cost.
Hazelcast Viridian Dedicated is a fully-managed, single-tenant cluster designed for organizations that have clear, predictable usage models and/or want precision control over their own clusters.
The Hazelcast Viridian products are powered by the Hazelcast Platform, a real-time data platform and integrated runtime that combines distributed stream processing and real-time data management to immediately and automatically act on discovered patterns, trends, and anomalies.
“Real-time applications are hard to build on traditional data platforms, forcing businesses to compromise on their strategic aspirations. Hazelcast Viridian Serverless is the next step in providing a truly real-time cloud, all while making it even easier to develop, configure and deploy innovative applications,” said Manish Devgan, chief product officer of Hazelcast. “Our new serverless offering is the most seamless way to build and deploy cloud-native, real-time applications that will drive the next generation of competitive advantage.”
With this architecture, companies can accelerate web and mobile applications, gain a 360-degree customer view, track assets in real-time, prevent fraudulent transactions, deliver personalized recommendations, create real-time promotional offers, and more. Hazelcast Viridian Serverless is also well-suited for stream processing environments that are the foundation for payment processing, Internet of Things analytics, and microservices messaging, according to the vendor.
Hazelcast Viridian Serverless is available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), with availability on Google Compute Platform (GCP) coming soon.
Also, Viridian Serverless offers a pay-as-you-consume monthly pricing model with built-in auto-scaling to meet resource requirements. Enterprises will only pay for what they need and can run cost-effective developer testing. Hazelcast customers will soon also have the option of a contract-based license that includes technical support.
