Choose the COMMUNITY tier for IBM Cloud (formerly Bluemix and Softlayer) applications that use fewer than 50 concurrent database connections and require less than 8 GB of storage. Please note this tier does not support use of triggers, stored procedures or user-defined functions.
Choose the DEVELOPER tier for testing and development purposes, or for production applications on the IBM Cloud (formerly Softlayer or Bluemix) when maximized up-time is not a primary concern. This tier also supports use of triggers, stored procedures and user-defined functions.
Choose the PRODUCTION tier for your vital production applications on the IBM Cloud (formerly Softlayer or Bluemix) when maximum database access and availability is critical. This tier also supports use of triggers, stored procedures and user-defined functions.
