Chapter 1. Introduction

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid (JDG) is available as a containerized image that is designed for use with OpenShift. This image provides an in-memory distributed database so that developers can quickly access large amounts of data in a hybrid environment.


There are significant differences in supported configurations and functionality in the Data Grid for OpenShift image compared to the full release of JBoss Data Grid.

This topic details the differences between the JDG for OpenShift image and the full release of JBoss Data Grid, and provides instructions specific to running and configuring the JDG for OpenShift image. Documentation for other JBoss Data Grid functionality not specific to the JDG for OpenShift image can be found in the JBoss Data Grid documentation on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
