100 Node Hazelcast cluster on Amazon EC2

Deploying, running and monitoring application on a big cluster is a challenging task. Recently Hazelcast team deployed a demo application on Amazon EC2 platform to show how Hazelcast p2p cluster scales and screen recorded the entire process from deployment to monitoring.

Hazelcast is open source (Apache License), transactional, distributed caching solution for Java. It is a little more than a cache though as it provides distributed implementation of map, multimap, queue, topic, lock and executor service.

Details of running 100 node Hazelcast cluster on Amazon EC2 can be found here. Make sure to watch the screencast!
