About VMware GemFire® for VMs

VMware GemFire for VMs is a high-performance, high-availability caching layer for VMware Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs). GemFire offers an in-memory key-value store. It delivers low-latency responses to a large number of concurrent data-access requests.

GemFire provides a service broker to create in-memory data clusters on demand. These clusters are dedicated to the TAS for VMs space and tuned for specific use cases defined by your service plan. Service operators can create multiple plans to support different use cases.

VMware GemFire for VMs uses VMware GemFire v9.10.13. The VMware GemFire API Documentation details the API for client access to data objects within VMware GemFire. GemFire supports writing JavaScript apps with the Node.js Client for VMware Tanzu™ GemFire®.

This documentation performs the following functions:

  • Describes the features and architecture of GemFire
  • Provides the VMware Application Service for VMs operator with instructions for installing, configuring, and maintaining GemFire
  • Provides app developers instructions for choosing a service plan and creating and deleting GemFire service instances
  • Provides app developers instructions for binding apps
