apache – Spring Boot connecting to Pivotal Cloud Cache
Client applications cant create regions on the servers, its a task that should be executed by an operator with admin privileges, either through
cache.xml configuration files or the
cluster configuration service. Allowing clients to arbitrarily create regions could be counter-productive and generate a huge amount of unused regions on your cluster and unnecessary noise and overhead, which is not recommended at all for production environments.
That said, Spring Data for Apache Geode/GemFire allows you to push your configuration to the Cluster from a client application automatically, which is useful in developments environments. I dont know if this is allowed by the Pivotal Cloud Cache internal policies and restrictions, you might want to check directly with Pivotal.
Hope this helps.
