We'll respond shortly.
Last year, Pivotal as a company formed to pave the way for the next era of application development, with our vision manifesting in the comprehensive platform-as-a-service Pivotal One. Pivotal One has two parts: one Pivotal CF, the commercial distribution of Cloud Foundry PaaS; and two, the ready-to-run Pivotal One services that function as fundamental building blocks within the unified PaaS.
Today we are adding to the list of available services, with the general availability of the Pivotal RabbitMQ Service. Available in beta since last summer, the Pivotal RabbitMQ Service is now can be deployed by the Pivotal One installer as a service in Pivotal CF, similar to how other Pivotal One services such as the Pivotal HD Service and the Pivotal MySQL Service are deployed. This tight integration eases deployment and upkeep, thus speeding up time-to-value.
Messaging is critical to rapid and reliable movement of data within a distributed cloud environment. Over the years, RabbitMQ has been widely adopted due to its embrace of open standards, ease of use, and dependability. It has emerged as the de-facto standard for cloud messaging, helping internet giants like Google, Instagram, Twitter, Indeed.com and Nokia to scale to meet modern day demands.
Simplifying the overhead of managing complex applications is the focus of Pivotal One. The PaaS platform, Pivotal CF, stands up easily, and allows developers to upload their application source files using a Command Line Interface (CLI) or via plugins for popular IDEs and build tools like Eclipse, Maven, Gradle, Jenkins, Bamboo and more. From there, Pivotal CF takes over making virtually every next step to manage and scale the application hands-free.
To add further organization to custom applications, Pivotal CF employs the idea of buildpacks. Buildpacks provide the Pivotal CF platform the necessary context of the application so that it is then able to dynamically assemble and configure a complete runtime for a class of applications. Also available to those applications are built-in services for Hadoop and MySQL, making data easier to build into your applications. Now with the Pivotal RabbitMQ service, developers also have access to RabbitMQ on-demand, setting up a messaging broker that can be used to integrate applications running on Pivotal CF and those running outside Pivotal CF as well.
These services are true services to your application that can scale and update hundreds of instances instantly, with built-in load balancing and automated health management that actually intervenes to ensure your application keeps running. The result is developers have an open platform that allows them to use the right technology for their applications, with little of the IT overhead of setting up and maintaining the instance. This level of sophistication has traditionally been reserved for only the large scale development shops of the internet giants, but now is in easy reach of any organization.
Deploying the Pivotal RabbitMQ Service in Pivotal CF through the Pivotal One installer eases adoption and offers a number of advantages:
