Hazelcast CEO, Kelly Herrell has an inspirational story. He put himself through graduate school by working on a commercial fishing boat for 18 hours a day, 7 days a week for 110 straight days in the unforgiving North Pacific each year.
Here in 2019, he spearheads Hazelcast, an in-memory computing company providing services to JPMorgan Chase, Charter Communications, Ellie Mae, UBS, National Australia Bank, SigmaStream and many more.
According to Kelly, this boom in in-memory computing is spurred by the need for extreme speed among Global 2000 businesses, as mere microseconds of delay can now mean billions in payment fraud undetected, missed e-commerce transactions or even failing to predict an industrial disaster.
Hazelcast offers the fastest data processing on the market for the largest, most data-intensive companies, making it central to the growth of the category. Essentially, the leading in-memory computing platform company addresses the growing demand for enhanced application performance, speed and scalability.
Hazelcast’s in-memory computing platform is comprised of two core products: Hazelcast IMDG and Jet. Hazelcast IMDG is an in-memory data grid built and proven to provide the performance at scale required by the world’s largest organizations.
Hazelcast Jet, is an ultra-fast, application embeddable, stream and batch processing engine capable of supporting real-time streaming data. The company also offers Hazelcast Cloud, a fully managed, low latency data layer for cloud-based workloads at any scale.
Hazelcast’s customers include six of the world’s 10 largest banks and 36 of the Fortune Global 500; its technology is deployed at nearly every major credit card company, five of the world’s largest e-commerce companies and four of the largest telecommunications companies.
