Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
Hash based partitioning
Hash the data keys and then use the resulting hash code modulo some maximum number as the partition names. The application returns a set of partitions numbered from 0 till 511. This allows the application to hash the request keys and then use the hash code modulo 512 as the partition name.
