Pivotal Introduces New Release of Pivotal Cloud Foundry
November 03, 2015

Pivotal announced a new release of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, the Cloud Native platform that unifies the software delivery process with an integrated application framework, platform runtime, and infrastructure automation.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry now includes expanded support for Spring Cloud Services, Microsoft Azure, .NET applications, Docker images, and application lifecycle management. With these enhancements, Pivotal further enables businesses to rapidly build, deploy, and operate Cloud Native applications on a wide choice of hosted, public, and private clouds.

“The days of monolithic technologies are ending. Today’s modern enterprises practice agile software development with Cloud Native tools, process, and culture that can respond to speed of market and customer demand,” said James Watters, VP and GM, Cloud Platform Group, Pivotal. “Pivotal Cloud Foundry delivers a comprehensive Cloud Native application development and operations environment so you can spend time building business value instead of your IT infrastructure.”

Integrated Microservices with Spring Cloud Services: Based on the popular Spring Cloud OSS, which is used by Netflix to operate its global, on-demand video streaming service, Spring Cloud Services for Pivotal Cloud Foundry goes one step further to provide opinionated provisioning and lifecycle management to these components. A secure, enterprise-ready distribution of core Netflix OSS components, Spring Cloud Services enables developers and operators of Cloud Native distributed systems architectures to quickly and easily build microservices by adding a suite of production-ready services to the Pivotal Cloud Foundry marketplace. Spring Cloud Services allows developers to focus on delivering business value and defers the deployment and management of important distributed systems patterns such as application configuration, service discovery, and fault-tolerance to the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform.

Native Support for .NET Applications: Thanks to the next-generation runtime shipping in this latest release, .NET applications can now run on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. With this expanded support for .NET, enterprises can support a heterogeneous environment consisting of both Linux-based and Windows-based applications. .NET applications will run natively on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V virtual machines, and Pivotal Cloud Foundry can manage applications with the same commands and many of the same consistent Day 2 operational benefits as existing applications.

Native Support for Docker Images: Docker applications can now leverage the built in Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform capabilities, such as scheduling, health management, load balancing, enterprise identity, logging, and multi-cloud support. Now in beta, native Docker image support is made possible by the new elastic runtime. Customers can deploy applications to Pivotal Cloud Foundry based on Docker images from public, secure registries such as Docker Hub.

Application Lifecycle Management Toolchain: Pivotal is partnering with GitLab, CloudBees, and JFrog to deliver a turnkey continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) solution. Building upon the popular software project management tool, Pivotal Tracker, customers can integrate platform-managed versions of GitLab source code repository, CloudBees Jenkins continuous integration, and JFrog Artifactory binary artifact management. By providing the building blocks of a modern application delivery toolchain, Pivotal Cloud Foundry empowers software organizations to build and deploy microservices and Cloud Native applications with confidence and speed.

Early Access Support for Microsoft Azure: Pivotal Cloud Foundry extends its Cloud Native platform with early access support for Microsoft Azure, adding to the already-supported Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware vSphere, VMware vCloud Air, and OpenStack. With Pivotal Cloud Foundry, customers can deploy and manage Cloud Native applications on almost any infrastructure; without the operational cost and complexity of maintaining their own underlying cloud infrastructure.
