Pivotal CF is Now Available as a Standalone Product on VMware vSphere

Pivotal CF, a commercially supported hybrid Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) based on Cloud Foundry, is now generally available as a standalone product that runs on VMware vSphere.  Pivotal CF includes:

  • Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime Service – Provides a complete, scalable runtime environment, extensible to most modern frameworks or languages running on Linux. Deployed applications enjoy built-in services, and can automatically bind to new data services through a service broker or to an existing user provided service.
  • Pivotal CF Operations Manager – Industry’s first turnkey enterprise PaaS management platform with IaaS integration 

Pivotal CF is available in the Product Evaluation Center with a 60 day trial.

Features include:

  • Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime allows developers to deploy, scale and manage applications and bind services using simplified semantics and APIs, so they can focus on writing code, not configuring infrastructure or middleware.
  • Buildpacks dynamically provide the appropriate runtime environment and Elastic Runtime automatically configures services so applications can be moved from development and test to staging and production environments with no changes
  • Outstanding Java Spring support through the Pivotal provided Java buildpack. Spring applications require no changes to get started on Pivotal CF and enjoy zero- touch service integration.
  • Deployed applications receive built-in services for horizontal scaling, load balancing, DNS, automated health management, and logging, resulting in a dramatic reduction in the number of vendors and integrations required for continuous software delivery.
  • Web console allows developers and application owners to manage and administer users and services.
  • Pivotal CF Loggregator delivers the ability to tail a unified log stream of application platform events and end user actions to clients and publish the log stream to a syslog drain for integration with log analytics tools.
