Easy scaling with Hazlecast

Hazelcast is popular data-grid implemented in Java. Presentation will cover road from monolith application to distributed system of microservices using Hazelcast as memory store, similar to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bBtMrjD0zo

Full abstract

In-Memory data grids have historically been the exclusive domain of large investment banks and proprietary solutions such as Oracle Coherence, Pivotal Gemfire and Software AG Terracotta. Hazelcast provides a opensource solution that is easy to develop, elastic in scaling and fault tolerant. Implemented in Java it offers some key advantages compared to other opensource players in arena. You can't send logic execution to Memcached node and Redis LUA interpreter is no match for state of art JVM. Also, it fits easily in Java micro-services architectures.
