Five layers of security for Red Hat Data Grid on OpenShift

Five layers of security for Red Hat Data Grid on OpenShift

Red Hat Data Grid is an in-memory, distributed, NoSQL datastore solution. With it, your applications can access, process, and analyze data at in-memory speed to deliver a superior user experience. In-memory Data Grid has a variety of use cases in today’s environment, such as fast data access for low-latency apps, storing objects (NoSQL) in a datastore, achieving linear scalability with data distribution/partitioning, and data high-availability across geographies, among many others. With containers getting more attention, the need to have Data Grid running on a container platform like OpenShift is clear, and we are seeing more and more customers aligning their architecture with a datastore running natively on a container platform.

In this article, I will talk about multiple layers of security available while deploying Data Grid on OpenShift. The layers of security offer a combination of security measures provided by Data Grid as well as by OpenShift/Kubernetes.

Using Red Hat Data Grid to power a multi-cloud real-time game

Using Red Hat Data Grid to power a multi-cloud real-time game

The scavenger hunt game developed for the audience to play during the Red Hat Summit 2018 demo used Red Hat Data Grid as storage for everything except the pictures taken by the participants. Data was stored across three different cloud environments using cross-site replication. In this blog post, we will look at how data was flowing through Data Grid and explain the Data Grid features powering different aspects of the game’s functionality.

Red Hat Data Grid on Three Clouds (the details behind the demo)

Red Hat Data Grid on Three Clouds (the details behind the demo)

If you saw or heard about the multi-cloud demo at Red Hat Summit 2018, this article details how we ran Red Hat Data Grid in active-active-active mode across three cloud providers. This set up enabled us to show a fail over between cloud providers in real time with no loss of data. In addition to Red Hat Data Grid, we used Vert.x (reactive programming), OpenWhisk (serverless), and Red Hat Gluster Storage (software-defined storage.)

This year’s Red Hat Summit was quite an adventure for all of us. A trip to San Francisco is probably on the bucket list of IT geeks from all over the world. Also, we were able to meet many other Red Hatters, who work remotely for Red Hat as we do.  However, the best part was that we had something important to say: “we believe in the hybrid/multi cloud” and we got to prove that live on stage.

Unlock your Red Hat JBoss Data Grid data with Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

Unlock your Red Hat JBoss Data Grid data with Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

Welcome to another episode of the series: “Unlock your Red Hat JBoss Data Grid (JDG) data with Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization (JDV).”

This post will guide you through an example of connecting to Red Hat JBoss Data Grid data source, using Teiid Designer. In this example, we will demonstrate connecting to a local JDG data source.  We’re using the JDG 6.6.1, but you can connect to any local or remote JDG source (version 6.6.1) if you wish, using the same steps.

Externalize HTTP Session Data to the JBoss Data Grid

Introduction

This article aims to provide a step by step guide for setting up a remote Red Hat JBoss Data Grid (JDG) cluster as an HTTP session store for your state-full web applications running on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP). I had recently explored this setup for another customer and figured it would be helpful to put together a set of detailed instructions for replicating this. This feature was recently released with the GA of JDG 6.5.
