How Pivotal Cloud Foundry Works

  • Provision

    Create your cloud-ready application:

    1. Develop your application in Java, Ruby, Python, Go, PHP or Node.js.
    2. Attach production-ready databases, messaging, mobile and big data services.
    3. The platform provisions servers, network and storage using your application policies.
  • Deploy

    Automated deployments that:

    1. Build cross-platform, isolated application containers from your code and dependencies.
    2. Instrument your application for central logging, monitoring and recovery.
    3. Go live with continuous delivery and zero downtime.
  • Manage

    Monitor, scale and upgrade applications:

    1. Administer all applications and services from a central dashboard.
    2. Enable autoscaling and high availability across multiple regions.
    3. Control application lifecycle and platform policies across your entire infrastructure.

Operational Visibility & Control

Single-pane-of-glass visibility into the entire platform that enables in-depth application and infrastructure monitoring.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployments can be engineered to host large enterprise workloads with sensitive data that meets strict compliance and regulatory requirements.

  • Monitoring & Metrics - Fully integrated data collection across applications and platform.
  • High Availability - Automation capabilities that ensure applications are always available and accessible.
  • Manage Services - Know where all your instances centrally manage upgrades, configuration and security.


Application-centric approach to security that includes:

  • Container isolation for applications
  • Application security groups to restrict application connections
  • Role-based access control that limits access to resources
  • Auditability of platform activities

The Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform removes the need to configure any underlying infrastructure to reduce the risk of human error.

Application Portability

Containers and standardized orchestration tools provide a consistent deployment environment across public and on-premise infrastructure.

Open application and orchestration standards enable operators to migrate applications between any compatible public and private infrastructure. Cloud Foundry applications can run on virtualized servers provisioned in VMware vSphere, OpenStack and Amazon Web Services.


Pivotal Cloud Foundry simplifies application management tasks such as upgrades, auditing, security reviews and maintenance through a cultural shift from ad-hoc, individual deployments to centrally-managed services.

Platform administration is streamlined by infrastructure-agnostic deployment templates and tooling to automatically configure servers, disks and networks. The platform manages operational tasks such as:

  • Rolling platform upgrades
  • Automated platform monitoring and recovery
  • Network management such as IP assignment, management and recycling
  • Storage management


IT administrators can offer a self-service catalog of databases, analytics and middleware technologies. Platform services offer several advantages:

  • Self service
  • Production ready
  • Integrated lifecycle management
  • Managed credentials
  • Role-based access

For example, mobile developers can take advantage of built-in services for mobile APIs, push notifications and data synchronization.
