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 WAN Replication on Google Cloud Platform


The ability to efficiently replicate data from one site to another is known to be a critical component of disaster recovery and geo-distribution strategies. But to do so, each site must run software that can participate in the replication connection. This often is not the case when running cloud vendor-specific software systems.

When using Hazelcast for cloud application acceleration, you can use its WAN Replication feature to make a copy of your cluster data from any location to another. This includes support for multi-cloud deployments, where you can choose the cloud vendor that best suits your needs at each geographic location. Hazelcast will replicate seamlessly across clusters, regardless of the environment.

In this video, Hazelcast senior solutions architect Sharath Sahadevan walks through the setup of Hazelcast WAN Replication in Google Cloud Platform. With this capability, you can replicate data to and from Hazelcast clusters running on AWS, Azure, and even on-premises.
