Hazelcast Jet for PCF (Beta)

WARNING! The Hazelcast Jet for PCF tile is currently in beta and is intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use this product in a PCF production environment.

This documentation describes how to install, configure, and use Hazelcast Jet for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF). Hazelcast Jet for PCF registers a service broker on PCF and exposes its service plans on the Marketplace. Developers can provision Hazelcast Jet clusters by creating instances of the service plans using the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) tool.

Overview

Hazelcast Jet for PCF uses an on-demand services SDK, which is a part of Pivotal Cloud Services SDK, to fully utilize BOSH-2.0 features and let you provision instances more flexibly.

Features of Hazelcast Jet for PCF include the following:

  • Based on Hazelcast Enterprise, the leading in-memory data grid (IMDG)
  • The ability to dynamically pass your Hazelcast Jet configuration in JSON format when creating services
  • An on-demand service broker that dynamically creates and scales Hazelcast Jet clusters without pre-provisioning blocks of VMs
