Spring Boot: Hazelcast for Session Replication


If you build Spring Boot applications and maintain user sessions, you want the session data to be replicated to all your application instances to support load balancing as well as failover capabilities. Hazelcast IMDG easily plugs in as a session replication manager, and its open source version makes it easy to get started.

In this video, Hazelcast software engineer Rafal Leszko walks you through the configuration of a Spring Boot application that embeds Hazelcast for session replication. This example shows how you can add Hazelcast with minimal extra code in your application.
