Configuring High Availability for Partitioned Regions
By default, Pivotal GemFire stores only a single copy of your partitioned region data among the region's data stores. You can configure GemFire to maintain redundant copies of your partitioned region data for high availability.
Rebalancing Partitioned Region Data
In a distributed system with minimal contention to the concurrent threads reading or updating from the members, you can use rebalancing to dynamically increase or decrease your data and processing capacity.
Checking Redundancy in Partitioned Regions
Under some circumstances, it can be important to verify that your partitioned region data is redundant and that upon member restart, redundancy has been recovered properly across partitioned region members.
