Virtustream Partners with Pivotal
June 15, 2017

Virtustream announced a collaboration with Pivotal to provide a fully managed, enterprise-class cloud service for customers building and deploying applications with the Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

Designed to pair Virtustream’s enterprise-class cloud and managed services with the Pivotal Cloud Foundry cloud-native application development platform, the single instance, hosted service provides an alternative to general purpose public cloud offerings. This enables organizations to quickly build and deploy applications, while delivering capabilities that enhance developer productivity, ensure high availability and security, and provide operational control, all of which are necessities in developing innovative software solutions.

"To compete in today’s markets, enterprise customers require the ability to develop and deploy their applications at a faster clip,” said Kevin Reid, President and CTO, Virtustream. “Virtustream Pivotal Cloud Foundry Service enables organizations to utilize one of the most popular developer platforms on the market today to deploy into a secure, enterprise-class cloud, while offloading the management of the environment to Virtustream.”

“Moving at startup speeds is on the minds of every business and government organization. To adapt, organizations need to couple the best modern developer platform with rock solid cloud infrastructure, creating a cloud-native environment optimized for developer productivity,” said Bill Cook, President and COO, Pivotal. “The shift to cloud-native applications is forcing every enterprise to focus on the speed at which you go from code completion to production and into the hands of customers. The collaboration between Pivotal and Virtustream provides the world’s largest organizations a cloud environment that allows for them to rapidly ship code.”

As these enterprises increasingly use Pivotal Cloud Foundry for core business apps, security and compliance become even more important; hence, the benefits of the Virtustream and Pivotal Cloud Foundry collaboration include:

● Enterprise-class experience. By offloading the responsibilities of infrastructure and platform deployment and management to Virtustream, customers reduce the cost, time, and complexity to build, deploy, and maintain cloud applications. Unlike on-premise solutions, there is no upfront investment or capital expenditure. Instead, cloud resources are managed using patented Virtustream MicroVM technology for true cloud economics.

● Faster time-to-market. Enterprises will innovate at a faster pace with managed services that speed up the delivery of enterprise business applications and services. Developers are given the ability to deploy a cloud native application platform and infrastructure services in minutes with a seamless DevOps build, test, and deployment model in Virtustream’s enterprise-class cloud.

● Increased productivity. Without having to maintain the underlying framework, developer resources are freed up to focus on customer experience and product innovation instead of managing the complexities of the technology. Operations teams can easily collaborate on app development too, increasing overall productivity across the organization and reduce the time spent from cloud application ideation to creation.
