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

How to Set Up Hazelcast on AWS ECS


If you’re looking to accelerate your containerized cloud applications on AWS ECS, then Hazelcast provides the in-memory engine to speed up data accesses. 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 deployment of a containerized application that uses Hazelcast on AWS ECS. In this example, there are no extra servers to install and no separate cluster to maintain, as the Hazelcast functionality is embedded in the application and automatically forms a cluster via auto-discovery.
