PCF Dev is a new Pivotal product that allows developers to run a nearly feature-complete Pivotal Cloud Foundry® installation locally in a single virtual machine. With PCF Dev, we aim to provide the full PCF experience locally, allowing you to iterate on your apps quickly in a production-like environment. PCF Dev includes condensed versions of the same production-grade components that comprise PCF, such as the Diego application scheduler.
Starting today, Pivotal Cloud Foundry will allow developers and operations teams a near real-time view into the health and performance of their applications through PCF Metrics. The new capabilities are designed to give developers fast feedback and allow them to quickly take action. This post highlights the functionality, shares screenshots, and explains what it can do for your Pivotal Cloud Foundry environments.
Pivotal® and Yahoo! JAPAN Corporation, the most visited website in Japan and the 15th-most visited site globally, recently announced that they will build the world’s largest open source-based private cloud platform with Pivotal Cloud Foundry® running on OpenStack that will create a unified service platform which will enable mobile first and continuous delivery for their services, including shopping, auction and media. This will contribute directly to the site’s explosive growth, which already boasts an astounding 68.1 billion monthly pageviews.
How up-to-date are your application environments? When's the last time you updated the operating system or loaded the latest Java runtime? If your team is like most, the answer is "not often enough." The Pivotal Web Services (PWS) team has come up with a new, built-in service for PWS users that uses Concourse continuous integration pipelining and buildpacks to automatically update known environments as quickly as the patches are made available, helping to curtail vulnerability for security breaches in your apps.
In this blog series, we have used the SpringTrader application as an example of an existing legacy Java app to modernize. In Parts 1, 2, and 3, we got the app up and running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry and began refactoring the architecture. This post extends the effort. At the end, you will clearly see how we have improved scalability, resiliency, and maintainability. Code examples and downloads are included.
One of the biggest announcements coming out of Google Cloud Platform’s Next Conference last week was about Apple moving workloads from AWS, but there is much more to the story than the headline. The world of poly-cloud is making big moves from financial justifications to customer moves to product developments. We cover it in this week’s BUILD Newsletter.
Today, VMware and Pivotal share an important milestone in our promise to deliver a next generation, turnkey Cloud Native platform that will fundamentally transform how companies deliver and run custom enterprise software. We are announcing the availability of the open source Photon Platform Cloud Provider Interface (CPI) for Cloud Foundry’s BOSH, an API that is used to interact with an underlying IaaS to create and manage objects on an infrastructure, including images, VMs and disks. Simply put, now Cloud Foundry users have the ability to manage their application’s lifecycle on the lightweight VMware Photon IaaS.
Our customers continue to make strategic, long-term decisions based on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and that is why we have seen such amazing growth. To support this, we are excited to launch a brand new partner program for systems integrators—the Pivotal Ready Partner Program. Why? First, our customers are demanding more consulting resources. Two, whenever we talk to systems integrators and consultancies, they all see Cloud Native opportunity and want additional support from us. In this post, we explain more about the program and motivations behind it.
In this week’s Build Newsletter, we’ll explore some research suggesting trends for the next decade of development projects. Then, we cover the largest PaaS conference in the world. Finally we’ll share a multitude of perspectives and explanations on serverless applications, containers, and microservices
This post and video recaps Pivotal's Onsi Fakhouri’s, vice president of cloud research & development, overview and roadmap for Pivotal Cloud Foundry. An edu-taining presentation that is in a style closer to Pixar than Powerpoint, Onsi explains how Pivotal is transforming how the world builds software and is eliminating the lion share of the burden of software development—letting developers and operators return their focus to just the code.
