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.

The Pivotal CF enterprise Cloud Foundry platform is a key enabler for modern, software-driven organizations. It includes:

  • Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime Service – Provides a complete, scalable runtime environment, extensible to most modern frameworks or languages running on Linux. Deployed applications leverage built-in services, and can automatically bind to new data services or to an existing user provided service.
  • Pivotal CF Operations Manager – Industry's first turnkey enterprise PaaS management platform with IaaS integration that enables zero-downtime patching and updates to the platform without service interruption.
  • Pivotal One Services – Available add-ons such as Pivotal™ HD, Pivotal AX, Pivotal RabbitMQ™, and MySQL include automatic application binding and service provisioning.
    • Pivotal HD Service – The Pivotal HD service for Pivotal CF enables cloud operators to build, manage, and scale Hadoop as a natively integrated Pivotal CF Service. Via the Service Broker, applications can bind to this service automatically assigning capacity in HDFS, a database in HAWQ™, and a resource queue in YARN. For application developers this reduces development cycle time by eliminating the typical complexities around deployment, security, networking, and resource management that are commonly associated with developing applications on Hadoop.
    • Pivotal AX Service – Pivotal AX is next-generation analytics software that is purpose-built on Pivotal HD and deploys and scales as the Pivotal CF Service. Enterprises and Service Providers can offer a self-service analytics environment to each company's division that addresses the creation, collection, storage, query, and visualization of data.
    • Pivotal RabbitMQ Service – Pivotal RabbitMQ is a message broker for applications running on Pivotal CF. With Pivotal RabbitMQ, applications can integrate with applications both within and outside of Pivotal CF.
    • MySQL Service – Using the MySQL service, enterprises can provision multi-tenant, single instance MySQL databases suitable for rapid application development and testing.
