How to Set Up Hazelcast on AWS ECS


If you’re looking to accelerate your containerized cloud applications on AWS ECS, then Hazelcast provides the in-memory engine to speed up data accesses. Hazelcast IMDG easily plugs into your applications and since it’s open source, it’s very easy to get started.

In this video, Hazelcast software engineer Rafal Leszko walks you through the deployment of a containerized application that uses Hazelcast on AWS ECS. In this example, there are no extra servers to install and no separate cluster to maintain, as the Hazelcast functionality is embedded in the application and automatically forms a cluster via auto-discovery.
