VMware Tanzu GemFire and Other VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs Services

As well as Tanzu GemFire, other services offer on-demand service plans. These plans let developers provision service instances when they want.

These contrast with the older pre-provisioned service plans, which require operators to provision the service instances during installation and configuration through the service tile UI.

The following table lists which service tiles offer on-demand and pre-provisioned service plans:

Service tile Standalone product related to the service Supports on-demand Supports pre-provisioned
RabbitMQ for VMware Tanzu [VMs] Pivotal RabbitMQ Yes Yes. Only recommended for test environments.
Redis for VMware Tanzu Redis Yes Yes (shared-VM plan). Only recommended for test environments.
MySQL for VMware Tanzu MySQL Yes
VMware Tanzu GemFire VMware GemFire Yes No

For services that offer both on-demand and pre-provisioned plans, you can choose the plan you want to use when configuring the tile.
