Pivotal Launches Multi-Cloud Enterprise PaaS
Pivotal, the company at the intersection of big data, PaaS, and agile development, today announced the availability of Pivotal™ One, a comprehensive, multi-cloud Enterprise PaaS comprised of a set of application and data services that run on top of Pivotal CF™, the leading enterprise distribution of the Cloud Foundry ™ platform. This new solution will allow enterprise companies to bring new innovation to market faster than ever before, enabling agile development teams to rapidly update and scale applications across public or private clouds, and instantly expand and upgrade with no downtime.
New Pivotal One services will work in conjunction with Pivotal CF to integrate differentiated data services such as Hadoop and visual analytics into the enterprise PaaS experience. With its rich portfolio of data assets and deep programming experience via Pivotal Labs, Pivotal is uniquely positioned to bring an offering like this to market.
As software continues to disrupt a wide variety of industries, there’s been a decided shift in the platforms and processes used to support these businesses, with many looking to PaaS offerings to help them develop new applications quicker and at great scale. Working in agile teams, developers demand a platform that allows them to continuously deliver updates and horizontally scale their applications with no downtime. They seek standardized ways to plug in leading data services and perform deep user analytics on top of massive data sets to drive rapid iteration based on customer needs.
With today’s announcement, Pivotal delivers on its promise to enable the creation of modern software applications that leverage big and fast data on a single, cloud independent platform. Companies can now analyze massive data repositories in their business applications using familiar interfaces, on a common virtual environment running in their private data centers – allowing them to provide more business value and new offerings for their customers. Time-to-value for this new class of applications is dramatically improved, allowing operators to continuously update, manage and scale this integrated platform with no production downtime.
