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 Data JPA and Hazelcast as Hibernate’s Second Level Cache


If you build Spring Boot applications that use Hibernate as your Spring Data Java Persistence API (JPA), you likely want to add a second level cache to provide faster access to frequently used data objects. With Hazelcast, you can get that faster access in a shared distributed cache that is available to all application instances, and not limited to each specific instance.

In this video, Hazelcast senior software engineer Grzegorz Piwowarek walks you through the steps to integrate Hazelcast into a Spring Boot application that leverages the Spring Data JPA using Hibernate.
