Founded more than 30-years ago, Sorint became a value added reseller (VAR) for Hazelcast in early 2018 to support the Southern Europe region. Since then, Hazelcast and Sorint have co-sponsored go-to-market activities, including training and sales motions for Sorint’s leading customers in the financial services, e-Commerce and other vertical markets. At the core of the Sorint in-memory practice is a group of senior solution architects and consultants certified on Hazelcast’s technologies and with decades of experience in complex enterprise IT implementations.
In addition to the expansion of supported regions, Sorint will become a preferred training and systems integrator (SI) partner for Hazelcast and its in-memory computing solutions globally.
“Sorint has been a valued partner for several years now and by expanding our partnership, Hazelcast is gaining a force multiplier that will enable us to better serve our current and future customers,” said Chris Wilson, chief revenue officer (CRO) at Hazelcast. “In addition to its familiarity with Hazelcast, we’re excited by the alignment of our respective partner ecosystems, especially with IBM and Red Hat.”
In May, Hazelcast was announced as a featured member of the IBM Edge Ecosystem.

Additionally, it released a number of optimizations that simplifies the deployment of Hazelcast Jet, its real-time event streaming engine, within Red Hat OpenShift environments.
