Types of service tiers

Dataproc Metastore uses service tiers to handle varying levels of stability and workloads. You can select the service tier when you create a Dataproc Metastore service. You can also change the service tier of an existing service.

There are two types of service tiers:

  • Developer: The Developer tier is typically used for production for low-cost proof-of-concept projects. This tier provides limited scalability sand no fault tolerance.

  • Enterprise: The Enterprise tier is typically used for production projects. This tier provides flexible scalability, fault tolerance, and multi-zone high availability. It can handle heavy Dataproc Metastore workloads.

By default, new Dataproc Metastore services are created with the Developer tier.
