these entry container were defined by the berkley db apis, so how entities container are created
in Ignite , is it driven by cacheName? where the entities are stored? To be simple where the
records for "Person" & "Department" would be stored and how that can be configured

Think of a cache as of a table in an RBMS. So “Person” and “Department” will be stored
in separate caches.

Data grid (key-value) examples should boost your plunging into Ignite concepts:

I am relying on key value apis to play with record in different dB containers, what is the
equivalent here of ignite i.e how do we represent different entity say employee in local file
system and how to insert and retrieve record

>> You have to run an Ignite instance to use it (you can embed it in your application),
you can't just use the key value store on it's own, a LOCAL cache would be the closest to
a Berkeley DB store.
