GemFire XD Deployment Models
Choose a deployment model based on your network topology, performance, and data volume requirements.
GemFire XD supports three basic types of deployment: client/server, embedded peer-to-peer, and multi-site (WAN). You can also deploy GemFire XD using elements from each topology. For example, embedded GemFire XD members can join an existing cluster of GemFire XD servers. Both embedded cluster and client-server topologies can use WAN replication as necessary.
