Choosing an Operating Mode

Before deploying Keycloak in a production environment you need to decide which type of operating mode you are going to use. Will you run Keycloak within a cluster? Do you want a centralized way to manage your server configurations? Your choice of operating mode effects how you configure databases, configure caching and even how you boot the server.

The Keycloak is built on top of the Wildfly Application Server. This guide will only go over the basics for deployment within a specific mode. If you want specific information on this, a better place to go would be the WildFly 10 Documentation.
