Abstract

This document provides feature support information for Data Grid 7.3.

1. Data Grid

Data Grid is a high-performance, distributed in-memory data store.

Schemaless data structure
Flexibility to store different objects as key-value pairs.
Grid-based data storage
Designed to distribute and replicate data across clusters.
Elastic scaling
Dynamically adjust the number of nodes to meet demand without service disruption.
Data interoperability
Store, retrieve, and query data in the grid from different endpoints.

1.1. Data Grid Usage Modes

Red Hat Data Grid supports two usage modes:

Remote Client-Server Mode (or Server Mode)
Run Data Grid as managed and distributed cluster that you can scale to meet demand. Client applications remotely access Data Grid through endpoints such as Hot Rod or REST.
Library Mode (or Embedded Mode)

Build and deploy Data Grid as a single node in your application runtime, where the application process and cache share the same JVM memory. In Library Mode, Data Grid can remotely access nodes hosted in other JVMs across your environment.

Data Grid supports Library Mode in application containers such as JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) or as standalone applications. Find out more about supported application containers in the Supported Configurations.

    Note

    Red Hat Fuse 7.3 and later provide a camel-infinispan component that replaces the Data Grid Apache Camel component, jboss-datagrid-7.3-camel-library.

    You should download and use the camel-infinispan component that Red Hat Fuse provides instead of jboss-datagrid-7.3-camel-library.

    Refer to the Infinispan Component section in the Apache Camel Component Reference document for more information. You can find the Apache Camel Component Reference in the Red Hat Fuse documentation.
