Hazelcast for Pivotal Cloud Foundry

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


Hazelcast 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 for PCF include the following:

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