MindSphere Managed Backing Services

This section gives a brief overview of the included Backing Services. Each instance of a Backing Service runs on a dedicated virtual machine. These virtual machines and services are operated by MindSphere.

Available Backing Services

Following Backing Services are included (list will be extended in the future):

Backing Service Description Plan
MongoDB MongoDB is a document data base that stores data in flexible, JSON-like documents, meaning fields can vary from document to document and data structure can be changed over time mongodb-xs and mongodb-m
PostGreSQL PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. postgresql-xs and postgresql-m
Redis Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. redis-xs and redis-m
RabbitMQ RabbitMQ is the most widely deployed open source message broker. rabbitmq-xs and rabbitmq-m
Elasticsearch Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of solving a growing number of use cases. As the heart of the Elastic Stack, it centrally stores your data so you can discover the expected and uncover the unexpected. elasticsearch-xs and elasticsearch-m
LogMe LogMe allows to provision Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana, i.e. the ELK-stack. Simply bind your Cloud Foundry app to LogMe and it will automatically start collecting metrics and syslogs from your apps and services. logme-xs and logme-m

Service Plans

All service plans (*-xs and *-m*) are enabled for every Org. Those plans are all marked as paid plans as you can buy additional instances of those. Depending on your offering you may have a certain amount of concurrent instances included. The following table shows you those for the MindAccess Developer Plan:

Offering Concurrent instances included
Developer Plan S 2 XS instances
Developer Plan M 4 XS instances
Developer Plan L 6 XS instances

You can buy additional service instances in different sizes via the MindSphere Store. Therefore, the Cloud Foundry Quota of your Org does not reflect your usable amount of service instances.
