Pivotal Cloud Cache and Other Pivotal Cloud Foundry Services

Warning: Pivotal Cloud Cache v1.8 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

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 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 PCF Pivotal RabbitMQ Yes Yes. Only recommended for test environments.
Redis for PCF Redis Yes Yes (shared-VM plan). Only recommended for test environments.
Pivotal Cloud Cache 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.
