7.1. About Distribution Mode

When enabled, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid's distribution mode stores each entry on a subset of the nodes in the grid instead of replicating each entry on every node. Typically, each entry is stored on more than one node for redundancy and fault tolerance.
As a result of storing entries on selected nodes across the cluster, distribution mode provides improved scalability compared to other clustered modes.
A cache using distribution mode can transparently locate keys across a cluster using the consistent hash algorithm.
