Getting Started with Hazelcast looks at the issue of data scalability and how traditional approaches tend to work around the problem to reduce it, but not without new issues cropping up.

The book describes how Hazelcast offers a solution to this problem using practical examples to help you store distributed data quickly and safely. You will also learn about running tasks easily across the cluster, using support for public cloud infrastructure, and how to architect to make best use of the technology.

  • Understand how to revolutionize the way you share data across your application
  • A one-stop guide to this bleeding edge technology
  • Store objects into distributed collections

Mat Johns is an Agile software engineer, hands-on solution architect, and a general technologist based in London. His experience with the Web reaches all the way back to his misspent youth and some rather hacktastic code, but eventually, he grew up to graduate from the University of Southampton with a master's in computer science with distributed systems and networks. Since then, he has worked for a number of start-ups on various web projects and systems, and nowadays, he specializes in designing and creating high-performance and scalable web services, currently in the Internet TV world.

Away from technology, he is an avid explorer and endeavors to seek out new destinations and adventures as much as possible. He is also a qualified yacht skipper and regularly races in, around, and beyond the Solent.
