Alpha Version of Pivotal Application Service on Kubernetes Released
July 18, 2019

Pivotal Softwareintroduced the alpha version of Pivotal Application Service on Kubernetes®, as well as new products based on PAS features that improve the developer and operator experience when using Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is becoming an increasingly ubiquitous part of th e cloud infrastructure. But many organizations are struggling to bring it into production because it’s so complex. Pivotal, and partners at VMware, helped to solve this problem with the PivotalContainer Service (PKS), which enables small teams of operators to manage numerous Kubernetes clusters at scale. Pivotal is now bringing its years of expertise gained building Cloud Foundry to make it easier for developers to deploy and run software on Kubernetes. The alpha version of PAS on Kubernetes brings the popular “cf push” experience to Kubernetes, making it easier for developers to focus on code, and lets the platform stitch together the required components for software deployment, networking, monitoring, and logging.

“Today’s announcements have been a long time in the making, and are the natural next step in our platform’s evolution. We helped start the Kubo open-source project in 2017, and launched the Pivotal Container Service with VMware last year, which is already being used by over 140 organizations,” said Rob Mee, CEO of Pivotal. “This announcement marks the next leap forward of our platform’s capabilities, and will help organizations achieve meaningful business outcomes on top of Kubernetes.”

Pivotal also introduced new products for Kubernetes based on PAS features. In May, the company introduced the first two products: general availability of Pivotal Spring Runtime®, and the alpha version of Pivotal Service Mesh. Today, Pivotal introduced the alpha version of the third product—Pivotal Build Service—and announced that the alpha version of RabbitMQ® on Kubernetes will be available soon.

Products Summary:

- Build Service: It provides automation for developers to easily create container images while providing enterprises the audit and security controls necessary to run with confidence at scale. It’s powered by the CNCF Cloud-Native Buildpacks project co-developed by Pivotal.

- RabbitMQ on Kubernetes: It automates deployment and ongoing operations of RabbitMQ, with a self-service and configurability experience available for developers.

- Service Mesh: It automates setup and configuration of Istio, enabling developers to get apps deployed to production quickly and securely.

- Spring Runtime: It offers comprehensive support for Java environments—including OpenJDK™, Spring Support, and Apache Tomcat®.

The alpha version of PAS on Kubernetes, and the new products based on PAS features will expand Pivotal’s market opportunity, simplify the company’s sales process, and make it easier for organizations to get started with Pivotal.
