Eclipse MicroStream - Ultra-fast Java cloud-native persistence for microservices and serverless apps

Hibernate is the de facto standard persistence framework for traditional Java database applications. Now, Eclipse MicroStream was built to be the Java persistence for containerized microservices and serverless functions. Eclipse MicroStream follows the system prevalence architectural pattern. The engine enables seamlessly storing any Java objects of any size and complexity transaction-save into cloud-native blob stores such as AWS S3 or any other binary storage. ACID transactions are journaled and deltas of the system state are regularly saved to disk. To reduce startup time and run also with a small RAM capacity of under 1 GB, MicroStream provides lazy loading. With Java Streams API, queries are executed in memory in microseconds - way faster than comparable JPA queries. Implementing is simple. There are no requirements for the entity classes, no annotations, interfaces, or superclasses, just POJOs. Additionally, expensive mappings or any data conversions are eliminated. The core benefits are extremely high performance, simple implementation, running trouble-free with stateless microservices, and reduced cloud storage costs.
