Infinispan is a distributed cache[1] and key-value NoSQL data store software developed by Red Hat. Java applications can embed it as library, use it as a service in WildFly[2][1] or any non-java applications[3] can use it, as remote service through TCP/IP.[4]


Infinispan is the successor of JBoss Cache.[1] The project was announced in 2009.



Typical use-cases for Infinispan include:

Infinispan is also used in academia and research as a framework for distributed execution and storage.
