Starting Monday, November 30, the Cloud Foundry and Java Spring teams will be visiting Minneapolis, Columbus, Philadelphia, New York City and Washington, D.C.—wrapping up by December 17. If you want to learn more about DevOps, Docker, Cloud Foundry, Lattice, Cloud Native Java, Spring Boot & Spring Cloud, and NetflixOSS, then join us at any of the seven meetups.
In this post, Greg Turnquist explains how Pivotal and Netflix are collaborating around Spinnaker, the Cloud Native continuous delivery platform just launched by Netflix. Additional Spinnaker details are provided, explaining goals, deployment approaches, its support for Cloud Foundry and other providers, architecture components, and processing steps.
We are pleased to announce the general availability of the Pivotal Single Sign-On service for Pivotal Cloud Foundry. This service allows applications running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry to integrate with enterprise identity providers for authentication and SSO with extraordinary simplicity.
Top business and IT leaders realize their companies must evolve into software and data driven organizations to effectively compete. To do so, they must shift to Cloud Native application platforms and enable processes for continuous delivery. Through partner integrations with GitLab, CloudBees, and JFrog, PCF now powers a toolchain for continuous delivery at enterprise scale, speed, and reliability.
With a new version of Pivotal Cloud Foundry® (PCF) out, host Coté caught up with James Watters to discuss what Pivotal customers are up to. In this podcast, we discuss the focus on application architecture and development that we've been seeing out in the field, as well as some of the features customers are most excited about in this release, namely Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Importantly, James explains what kinds of customers are relying on PCF and why.
This week’s release of Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.6 adds a host of new features for developers and operators of Cloud Native applications, including a major platform runtime update, new services for microservice-based application development, .NET support and an application lifecycle pipeline for continuous integration and delivery. In this post, Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s David Soul provides a complete overview of the newest platform features.
The Spring and Pivotal Cloud Foundry engineering teams have released a unique infrastructure to support Cloud Native architectures. This initial release of Spring Cloud Services (SCS) for Pivotal Cloud Foundry includes a configuration server, service registry, and circuit breaker dashboard. These components are made available to application development and operations teams as Pivotal Cloud Foundry managed services. SCS fully automates the installation, configuration, deployment, and management of these infrastructure components from Netflix and Pivotal. Developers can then use these services to implement software patterns for complex, distributed systems with minimal effort.
Looking at the similarities for the most successful software companies, there are three development tenets they embrace to achieve true agility: microservices, continuous delivery and DevOps. The latest release of Pivotal Cloud FoundryⓇ (PCF) packages modern Cloud Native software development tools into a turnkey platform. With a new library of core microservices called Spring Cloud Services, expanded support for .NET and Docker deployments, and built-in CI/CD toolchain with support for Cloudbees Jenkins, GitLab, and Jfrog Artifactory, it’s never been easier for enterprise teams to convert to Cloud Native patterns for development, testing, and operations.
During the Cloud Foundry Summit 2015, Pivotal’s David Sabeti and IBM’s Michael Maximilien reviewed the latest Cloud Foundry Service Broker Updates. These new features offer new opportunities to provision and customize services which were previously difficult to implement. Recently, the Cloud Foundry Service Broker API was updated to version 2.7, and some of the experimental API features went from experimental to GA.
During sessions and presentations, Pivotal will demonstrate its implementations of Cloud Native Java technologies at the JavaOne convention, taking place October 25-29 at Hilton Union Square in San Francisco. As an increasing number of enterprises migrate to a Cloud Native architecture, they seek guidance on how to best deploy and optimize Java apps on cloud platforms. Leading developers from Pivotal will be offering insight, best practices, and use cases during their presentations.
