Multi-master data grid replication topologies

With multi-master asynchronous replication, two or more data grids can become exact mirrors of one other asynchronous replication among links connecting the data grids together.

Each data grid is hosted in an independent catalog service domain, with its own...

After defining links, we synchronize the catalog service domains.

[v7.1 and later] Multi-master data grid replication is a significant new feature in v7.1. The feature is also called AP replication (availability and partitioning) in the context of the CAP theorem. The CAP theorem states that a distributed computer system cannot support more than two of the following three properties:

A replication data grid infrastructure is a connected graph of catalog service domains with bidirectional links among them to track data changes.

Depending on the requirements of the environment, you can optimize for...
