Despite the popularity of stateless applications and methodologies like 12-factor apps, there's an inherent need to deal with state in applications. Relational and NoSQL databases, in-memory caches, and distributed grids are all means of managing state—providing different capabilities to suit application needs.
Applications running in containers on a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) enjoy a high degree of scalability due to the auto-scaling capabilities of containers. However, auto-scaling can only be realized if the application’s state is also managed in a scalable manner.
Join this webinar to learn how Red Hat® JBoss Data Grid manages state for applications running on OpenShift by Red Hat and scales with your application.
Key topics include:
- How to take advantage of the elasticity provided by JBoss Data Grid to manage state in Java™ applications
- Storing application data in JBoss Data Grid instead of a relational database
- Providing state replication in a microservices-based architecture
