Want to try Hazelcast Platform?

We’ve combined the in-memory storage of IMDG with the stream processing power of Jet to bring you the all new Hazelcast Platform.


Currently, installation using CLI is intended for development purposes. For production setups please use the other installation options explained later in this chapter.

To install Hazelcast via command line interface, run the following commands:

  • Homebrew

  • Debian

  • RPM

brew tap hazelcast/hz
brew install hazelcast
wget -qO - https://repository.hazelcast.com/api/gpg/key/public | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb https://repository.hazelcast.com/debian stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt update && sudo apt install hazelcast
wget https://repository.hazelcast.com/rpm/hazelcast-rpm.repo -O hazelcast-rpm.repo
sudo mv hazelcast-rpm.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
sudo yum install hazelcast

Then, you can use the following command on your terminal/command line to start a standalone Hazelcast member:

hz start
