Hazelcast is an open source in-memory data grid based on Java.

It supports forming a cluster using multiple nodes, distributing data evenly across all nodes. This allows for vertical scaling both in terms of available storage space and processing power.

Hazelcast is usually used for:
- caching frequently accessed data in-memory
- storing temporal data like web sessions
- in-memory data processing and analytics
- as a memcached alternative with a protocol compatible interface
- cross-java virtual machine JVM communication and shared storage

Note: this package does not include checksum verification, as the downloaded ZIP archive has a different checksum with each download.

To install Hazelcast, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install hazelcast

To upgrade Hazelcast, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade hazelcast

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
