What happens when we reach our limits?

As large as we may scale our cluster to handle ever-growing datasets, it is quite possible that we will want to configure a map to feature specific behavior. The main things we can customize the number of backup counts and types, limits on how big a particular map can grow plus what we do when we reach that limit, and defining a default lifespan for our entries. We can use the hazelcast.xml configuration to define this behavior for all maps or for an individual one. Now, we can copy the configuration from the unpacked download bin/hazelcast.xml to our working directory, and add a custom configuration for our capitals map.
