Systems and Hazelcast

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#JavaHazelcast,
the leading open source in-memory data grid (IMDG) with tens of
thousands of installed clusters and over 40 million server starts per
month, today announced that it is opening a new office in Tokyo, Japan
(Tokyo Big Sight – Ariake Frontier Building, Level 9, Ariake Frontier
Building B, 3-7-26 Ariake Koto-ku, Tokyo 135-0063, Phone +81 345864844),
with Payara,
the best open source platform for JavaEE and MicroProfile applications.
To mark the opening of the new venture, Hazelcast and Payara will be hosting
a launch event
on January 30, 6:00PM – 10:30PM, at the Nakano

The two organizations have a longstanding relationship and collaborated
to create Payara Scales, a Hazelcast Enterprise add-on which provides
Payara Support users with an enterprise level, open source Java caching
solution which results in improved performance, resilience and
scalability for large-scale e-commerce and Java EE application

With registration at 6PM, the agenda for the event is as follows:

6:15 – 6:45PM – Moving to MicroProfile and EE4J – Steve Millidge

There are two major changes happening in the JavaEE
world. MicroProfile an industry collaboration to define Microservices
APIs on top of a subset of JavaEE and EE4J the migration of JavaEE from
the JCP to the Eclipse Foundation. In this presentation Steve will give
an update on the roadmap of both initiatives outlining their aims and

6:50 – 7:20PM – Payara Server on the Cloud – Kenji Hasunuma (Payara)
Server 5 is coming with Microprofile 1.2 support and synched up with
GlassFish 5 the JavaEE 8 reference implementation. Payara 5 includes a
new domain data grid based on Hazelcast that provides out of the box
cluster support for Cloud environments with zero configuration. In this
talk, Kenji Hasunuma will demonstrate the creation of a fully scalable,
high availability Payara 5 infrastructure on Microsoft Azure.

7:25 – 8:25PM – Introduction to Hazelcast Jet, the new Fast Big Data
Platform – Greg Luck (Hazelcast)

Jet is a new, Apache 2
licensed, DAG-based platform for stream and batch processing. In this
talk, Greg Luck, Hazelcast CEO/CTO will introduce you to the
architecture and provide coding examples. Jet can replace Spark and
provide greater speed and much simpler deployment – it’s a 10MB Jar with
no dependencies other than those you need for connectors, which you can
easily embed into your application.

8:30 – 9:00PM – Microservice meets Payara on k8s with Istio on Azure
– Yoshio Terada (Microsoft)

Recently Kubernetes has been
attracting interest in terms of performing orchestration of Docker
containers. In this session, we introduce a method for implementing
microservice on Kubernetes using Payara/Hazelcast. The demonstration
will introduce a new way of realizing a circuit breaker and deployment
such as Blue Green/Canary, using service mesh technology called Istio.
The presentation will also introduce the distributed tracing tool
Zipkin, which shows the latency between service calls, and will also
demonstrate real-time system monitoring using Grafana.

9:05 – 9:30PM – The Start of a New Future for Java – Simon
Ritter (Azul)

JDK 9 has been released and at the same time a
number of announcements have been made about how Java will be released
and how updates will be made available through the OpenJDK. In this
session, we’ll take a look at what those announcements are and how these
changes will impact decisions about which versions of Java to use for
deploying microservice-based applications in the cloud.

9:30 – 10:30PM – Networking, Food & Drinks
“Payara chose
to partner with Hazelcast so we could bring the power of Hazelcast’s
leading Data Grid technologies to Payara Server. With our partnership
Payara Server utilises Hazelcast Enterprise’s cutting-edge WAN
replication and High Density Memory Store capabilities for Web Session
and JCache data. For our customers this means high availability, extreme
performance and ultra-scalability for mission critical web
applications,” said Steve Millidge, Payara Founder & Technical Director.

distributing data across multiple machines. The rise of cloud, social
media, and IoT has created demand for applications that need to be
extremely fast and capable of processing millions of transactions per
second. The Hazelcast IMDG computing platform helps companies manage
their data and distribute processing using in-memory storage and
parallel execution for breakthrough application speed and scale. It is
easy to work with and brings a highly resilient and elastic memory
resource to applications and is also one of the most widely adopted open
