This month’s Pivotal Cloud Foundry release adds a host of new features that make it easier to develop distributed applications. New features are detailed in this release post including CLI plugins, a new session state caching service, and high availability for MySQL databases.
The Pivotal Cloud Foundry team is excited to announce that the Pivotal Services catalog now includes a highly available MySQL database. Applications that are running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry can now be backed by a resilient relational database. This integrated Database as a Service (DBaaS) ensures continuous availability of critical applications, without requiring the operational overhead of creating and managing a MySQL cluster.
Today, we announce the first release of Pivotal One, a cohesive platform built from Pivotal technologies that aims to significantly accelerate how companies build, deploy, scale and manage big data and applications in the cloud. In it, we introduce 2 new offerings, Pivotal CF and Pivotal One Services. Together, these services provide the foundation for any organization to build out the kind of agile development and production IT services that previously were reserved for only internet giants. Complete with development and production services like health monitoring, automatic load-balancing, and deployment automation, the new on-demand service is designed to significantly speed up application delivery from months to days and can dynamically scale an application to hundreds of instances in seconds, allowing businesses to truly focus on their business and innovate with disruptive speed.
