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

Spring Boot: Hazelcast for Session Replication


If you build Spring Boot applications and maintain user sessions, you want the session data to be replicated to all your application instances to support load balancing as well as failover capabilities. Hazelcast IMDG easily plugs in as a session replication manager, and its open source version makes it easy to get started.

In this video, Hazelcast software engineer Rafal Leszko walks you through the configuration of a Spring Boot application that embeds Hazelcast for session replication. This example shows how you can add Hazelcast with minimal extra code in your application.
