Hazelcast IMDG is a perfect fit for your (micro)services running on Kubernetes, since it can be used in the embedded mode and therefore scale in and out together with your service replicas. This blog post presents a step-by-step description of how to embed Hazelcast into a Spring Boot application and deploy it into the Kubernetes cluster.
Hazelcast is well integrated with the Kubernetes environment. Using Hazelcast Kubernetes Plugin, Hazelcast members discover themselves automatically. Using Hazelcast Helm Charts, you can deploy a fully functional Hazelcast cluster with a single command. Now, it’s time to focus on the operational part and describe what to do if you want to scale up or down the number of Hazelcast members in a cluster.
