Hazelcast, a computing platform company, is updating its in-memory data grid solution, Hazelcast IMDG 3.12 with new features focused on data integrity, cloud interoperability, performance-sensitive data storage, and more.
Hazelcast now provides both a Consistency (CP) Subsystem for sensitive concurrency structures which favors consistency over availability and an Availability (AP) Subsystem for data storage structures which favor availability over consistency.
By offering both AP and CP subsystems, Hazelcast offers customers the ability to fine-tune the in-memory data grid to suit the application and provide a consistent, stable end-user experience. The correctness of the CP Subsystem has been confirmed with industry standard Jepsen tests.
“With this breakthrough, Hazelcast achieves the highest data correctness standards in the industry,” said Greg Luck, chief technology officer for Hazelcast. “Competitive offerings resoundingly fail in this area. By solving these challenges, customers will be able to use Hazelcast’s concurrent structures to build their applications, without relying on additional clustering software, thus simplifying their operations.”
In alignment with the growing trend of enterprises adopting multi-cloud architectures, Hazelcast IMDG 3.12 also features support for Kubernetes, which has become the de facto cloud operating system with support from all major cloud providers and increased adoption on-premises.
Hazelcast IMDG 3.12 now supports first-class JSON data structures across all language clients, a feature often found in document databases..
Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise also introduces Blue/Green Deployments, which enables progressive rollouts and mitigates risk during software upgrades. Additionally, Hazelcast IMDG 3.12 now provides Automatic Disaster Recovery (DR) failover.
