Tanzu RabbitMQ enables app developers to provision and use the RabbitMQ message broker with a single command.
Tanzu RabbitMQ supports two types of service, an on-demand service and a pre-provisioned service.
This table summarizes the main differences between the two:
|VMs it Runs On||How VMs are Created||Metrics Name Prefix|
|On-Demand Service||Dedicated VM that serves a single service instance. For more information, see Unlocking the Power of On-Demand Tanzu RabbitMQ.||The BOSH Director creates each VM on-demand when an app developer creates a service instance.||
|Pre-Provisioned Service||Multi-tenant VMs shared by apps across your deployment||The BOSH Director creates all VMs when operator deploys or updates service||
Note: For most new apps, VMware recommends that you use on-demand services instead of pre-provisioned services. The on-demand service offering isolates workloads by creating a separate VM for each service instance.
In Tanzu RabbitMQ versions before v1.8.0, the Tanzu RabbitMQ service instances correspond to a unique RabbitMQ virtual host on the multi-tenant RabbitMQ cluster. Tanzu RabbitMQ v1.8.0 introduced on-demand service broker (ODB) support. That means you can create a new single-tenant cluster and dedicate it to a single app.

RabbitMQ is a fast and dependable open-source message server, which supports a wide range of use cases including reliable integration, content-based routing and global data delivery, and high-volume monitoring and data ingestion.
Emerging as the de facto standard for cloud messaging, RabbitMQ is used for efficient communication between servers, apps, and devices, and creates lasting value by enabling rapid development of modern decentralized app and data architectures that can scale with your business needs.

As well as Tanzu RabbitMQ, 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|
|VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ for VMs||Pivotal RabbitMQ||Yes||Yes. Only recommended for test environments.|
|Redis for VMware Tanzu Application Service||Redis||Yes||Yes (shared-VM plan). Only recommended for test environments.|
|VMware Tanzu SQL with MySQL for VMs||MySQL||Yes
|VMware Tanzu GemFire for VMs||VMware GemFire||Yes||No|
