Get Started

Get Started

These guides demonstrate how to get started quickly with Hazelcast IMDG and Hazelcast Jet.

Hazelcast IMDG

Learn how to store and retrieve data from a distributed key-value store using Hazelcast IMDG. In this guide you’ll learn how to:

  • Create a cluster of 3 members.
  • Start Hazelcast Management Center
  • Add data to the cluster using a sample client in the language of your choice
  • Add and remove some cluster members to demonstrate data balancing capabilities of Hazelcast

Hazelcast Jet

Learn how to build a distributed data processing pipeline in Java using Hazelcast Jet. In this guide you’ll learn how to:

  • Install Hazelcast Jet and form a cluster on your computer
  • Build a simple pipeline that receives a stream of data, does some calculations and outputs some results
  • Submit the pipeline as a job to the cluster and observe the results
  • Scale the cluster up and down while the job is still running

Hazelcast IMDG Go Client

Hazelcast IMDG is a feature-rich and developer-friendly in-memory caching solution for your Go applications.

  • Access all of the Hazelcast data structures plus distributed queues, topics, and more with the Hazelcast IMDG Go Client.
  • Declarative configuration support via JSON.
  • High-performance aggregation functions, such as sum, average, max, and min, for Hazelcast Map entries. They can run in parallel for each partition and are highly optimized for speed and low-memory consumption.
  • Use the Projection API to strip down each result object in order to avoid redundant network traffic.

Roadmap

Roadmap

Go Client 1.0 (2021 Q2)

  • Hazelcast 4.0 Compatibility: Client protocol enhancements, architectural improvements, Serialization improvements.
  • Ownerless Client: Simpler design to track member leaves and joins to the cluster.
  • Near Cache: An implementation of Hazelcast’s near cache functionality for the GoLang client.
  • Go Module Support: Allow users to grab a specific client version rather than the master one.
  • Go Context Support
  • More idiomatic API

Go Client Backlog

  • Hazelcast Serialization 2.0 Support: Querying friendly and space efficient serialization that has high usability.
  • SQL support: Ability to query the data stored in Hazelcast Map declaratively using SQL.
  • Backup Acknowledgment: Significantly improved client performance by eliminating the sync backup wait from the client and send the backup ACK to the client.
  • CP Subsystem Support: New Concurrency APIs including FencedLock, AtomicLong, Semaphore, CountDownLatch, and AtomicReference.
  • Blue/Green Failover Config: Support of the blue/green deployment and disaster recovery features.
  • Sessions in Gorilla: Session backend for Gorilla web toolkit that stores sessions in Hazelcast.
