We should start calling Hazelcast, Hazelfast. Hazelcast 3.6 EA shipped last week, and it is very fast. Compared to what, you ask? Well, compared to everything. How do we know this? Well, our competitors made their own comparative benchmarking tools, YardStick and RadarGun. And we ran them against Hazelcast as we were developing 3.6. We were getting faster anyway thanks to our dedicated performance team, but there is nothing like competition to spur improvement.

Hazelcast Versus Infinispan/JBoss Data Grid

On RadarGun, the Infinispan tool, we are faster in all tests with the biggest margin begin 80%.

Hazelcast Versus Apache Ignite/GridGain

On YardStick, the GridGain tool, we are faster in all tests with the biggest margin being 90% faster.

Oracle Coherence

It turns out that it is a breach of Oracle’s OTN license to publish benchmarks. So we can’t comment at all on our benchmark results compared to Oracle Coherence. But, there is no such restriction on publishing a Benchmark Suite. We can send it to you and you can run it yourself.
