The Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization for OpenShift image is based on Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.4. There are some differences in functionality between the JDV for OpenShift image and the standalone version of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization:

  • Cached results are automatically replicated to every member of the JDV for OpenShift cluster.
  • The JDV for OpenShift image is built on the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for OpenShift image and has inherited its differences. To read about them, click here: Comparison: EAP and EAP for OpenShift Image.
Important

The Red Hat Data Grid (RHDG) Hot Rod client is built into the JDV image. Hot Rod clients are compatible with specific Data Grid versions.

You must install the version of the JDV image that corresponds to the version of your RHDG instances.
