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.|
|VMware Tanzu SQL [MySQL]||MySQL||Yes
|VMware Tanzu GemFire||Apache Geode||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.
