Pivotal Cloud Cache and Other Pivotal Cloud Foundry Services

As well as Pivotal Cloud Cache, 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 services offer on-demand and pre-provisioned service plans:

service tile Standalone product related to the service Supports on-demand Supports pre-provisioned
RabbitMQ for PCF Pivotal RabbitMQ Yes Yes. Only recommended for test environments.
Redis for PCF> Redis Yes Yes (shared-VM plan). Only recommended for test environments.
MySQL for Pivotal Platform MySQL Yes
No
Pivotal Cloud Cache (PCC) Pivotal 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.
