Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform

This documentation describes how to install, configure, and use Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform. Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform registers a service broker on Pivotal Platform 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).

Overview

Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform uses an on-demand services SDK, which is a part of Pivotal Cloud Services SDK, to fully utilize BOSH v2 features and let you provision instances more flexibly.

Features of Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform include the following:

  • Based on Hazelcast IMDG 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

WARNING: Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise for Pivotal Platform v1.6.2 and earlier require a Ubuntu Trusty stemcell. The end-of-life date for Ubuntu Trusty is April 2019. If a security vulnerability is found on this stemcell after April, it will not be fixed.

Limitations

If you change managementCenterConfig in your JSON configuration file, then all VMs are shutdown at the same time. This means that you lose all the cluster data unless you are persisting that data elsewhere.
