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

Caching with Spring Boot and Hazelcast


If you build applications with Spring Boot, then you should consider a very easy way to make them run much faster with an embedded cache. Hazelcast IMDG easily plugs into your applications, and since it’s open source, it’s very easy to get started.

In this video, Hazelcast software engineer Rafal Leszko walks you through the steps for adding Hazelcast as a cache to your Spring Boot applications. There’s no extra server to install and no separate cluster to maintain. Everything you need will be embedded in your application.

As you’ll see in the video, Hazelcast doesn’t need to have separate caches for each application instance. Hazelcast discovers other instances and automatically turns your multiple application instances into a cluster. There’s no other effort on your part. This gives you a distributed cache that shares data across all application instances you run.
