Get Started

These guides demonstrate the operational flexibility and speed of the Hazelcast In-Memory Computing Platform. Set-up in seconds, data in microseconds. Operations and developer friendly.

Hazelcast IMDG

Find out for yourself how to get a Hazelcast IMDG cluster up and running. In this Getting Started guide you’ll learn how to:

  • Create a Cluster of 3 Members.
  • Start the 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 the automatic rebalancing of data and back-ups.

Hazelcast Jet

Learn how to run a distributed data stream processing pipeline in Java. In this Getting Started guide you’ll learn how to:

  • Start a Hazelcast Jet cluster in your JVM.
  • Build the Word Count application.
  • Execute the application wit Jet.
  • Push testing data to the cluster and explore results

As a next step, you will be able explore the code samples and extend your setup more features and connectors.

Tech Talk: Distributed Systems – The bare minimum for building reliable applications


Distributed systems are hard. They introduce new failure modes, they force us to deal with consistency concerns. Researchers keep throwing scary acronyms such as CRDT, CAP or PACELC and we are forced to think about trade-offs all the time. What’s considered to be a bug in one system can be a completely valid design in another system. It’s easy to feel lost in all the intricacies.

This talk gives you a gentle introduction into consistency models and will help you with reasoning about trade-offs.
