All Things Pivotal Podcast Episode #20–Spring Session

One of the key design patterns needed to deploy a new, or migrate an existing, application to the cloud is robust session state management. This session state must be outside the business logic, and be able to scale independently of other layers. This week, Simon is joined by Adib Saikali, a senior field engineer at Pivotal, to discuss how the new Spring Session meets these needs for java developers.

New Book Explains How Cloud-Native Application Architectures Drive the Innovation Cycle

Stable industries that were previously dominated by entrenched leaders are now being disrupted by companies with software at their core. Companies like Square, Uber, Netflix, Airbnb, and Tesla have significant brand recognition and rapidly increasing private market valuations. Pivotal Cloud Foundry is a platform that was developed to raise the abstraction level to that of applications and services needed to rapidly deliver software, allowing for a renewed focus on the delivery of business value via software. But this value cannot be achieved by simply forklifting existing workloads onto the platform. To maximize the value obtained from the platform, the enterprise must migrate to cloud-native application architectures. At Pivotal, we’re constantly asked by customers “How do we get there?” To help answer that question, Pivotal's Matt Stine wrote a new e-book, available today, called Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures, published by O’Reilly Media, Inc.
