Hazelcast is distributed in a form of Docker images.

You can run the following command to launch the Hazelcast Docker container:

  • hazelcast

  • hazelcast-enterprise

  • hazelcast-enterprise-4-rhel8

docker run hazelcast/hazelcast:$HAZELCAST_VERSION
docker run -e HZ_LICENSE_KEY=<Your Enterprise License Key> hazelcast/hazelcast-enterprise:$HAZELCAST_VERSION
# You must be logged into Red Hat Container Registry

docker run -e HZ_LICENSE_KEY=<Your Enterprise License Key> registry.connect.redhat.com/hazelcast/hazelcast-enterprise-4-rhel8:$HAZELCAST_VERSION

This command will pull Hazelcast Docker image and run a new Hazelcast instance.
