New application development and data services narrow the gap between business expectations, IT operations and application development
SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Pivotal, the company at the intersection of big data, PaaS, and agile development, today announced new enterprise-grade capabilities for Pivotal CF, the leading enterprise Platform-as-a-Services (PaaS) based on the widely adopted open source Cloud Foundry. Expanded capabilities include new data services, dual availability zones, and doubling the number of application build packs for developers.
The Case for Enterprise PaaS
Some of the most respected and established brands in the world have realized the limitations of a client-server model and the opportunity of shifting to the cloud. Enterprises running their businesses on aging, legacy siloes are struggling to manage massive data loads and rapid cycles in the creation of modern applications.
These brands are seeing their businesses disrupted by start-ups leveraging the inexpensive compute, storage, and networking advantages of cloud computing and focusing on building applications that have created new markets, innovative products, and new customer experiences.
An enterprise-grade PaaS will enable companies large and small alike to take advantage of cloud computing, and to create fast, agile software-driven businesses. Pivotal CF has become the de-facto enterprise PaaS standard by addressing organizations' operational concerns, security policies, and providing the capability across hybrid cloud environments. Pivotal CF frees up enterprises to rapidly develop, run, and manage their apps across any public or private cloud. It delivers on the needs of all IT application stakeholders to create business value and stay competitive.
IT Operations Closer to the Speed of Business
Developer Services for Next-Gen Apps
This latest release comes eight weeks after the previous version, demonstrating Pivotal's commitment and ability to deliver on a rapid, continuous innovation cycle required by their enterprise customers. Pivotal CF 1.3 will be available in the early third quarter of 2014.
Donnie Berkholz, Analyst, RedMonk
"One of the driving forces behind shadow IT has been the mismatch between business needs for agility and IT's reputation as the department of 'no'. Private PaaS has the potential to provide a high-productivity developer experience that's a hallmark of PaaS in addition to the visibility and governance IT desires, by making IT's needs transparent to developers. Pivotal's efforts in building Cloud Foundry and its broader ecosystem put it in position to attack this opportunity."
James Watters, Vice President Product, Marketing and Ecosystems for Cloud Foundry at Pivotal
"Pivotal is committed to bringing PaaS to the enterprise in a way companies want to consume it. I've met with IT leaders across industries and hear consistently how they want to modernize their app portfolio with solutions that let them innovate faster and build modern, data driven apps. They also want the freedom to run apps on their own cloud or best-of-breed public clouds. This release of Pivotal CF was built to meet those needs for organizations of any size, across industries."
Pivotal, committed to open source and open standards, recently introduced Pivotal One, the world's first comprehensive multi-cloud Enterprise PaaS. The company is also a leading provider of application and data infrastructure software, agile development services, and data science consulting.
