Get Started with Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Cloud Foundry runs many applications, written in many languages—from Java, .NET, and Ruby to JavaScript, Python, PHP, and Go. Regardless of your preferred language or framework, your applications can take advantage of the platform’s centralized logging, health management, rapid scaling, and dynamic routing capabilities. Now, you just have to consider which host to target when deploying your applications.

Pivotal offers three viable hosts for running applications in Cloud Foundry. Let’s take a closer look at each:

Pivotal Cloud Foundry

This full-featured cloud-native platform runs on any major public IaaS or private cloud. It’s a commercial offering that includes the full developer experience, support for Pivotal’s rich software ecosystem, and all of the management tools that operators depend on for release. It’s ideal for companies that need a platform to continuously deliver dozens, hundreds, or thousands of highly-available applications.

Pivotal Web Services

This hosted cloud-native platform requires zero installation and operations. It’s Pivotal Cloud Foundry with hosted, pay-by-the-hour pricing. Available in the U.S., and soon in Europe, Pivotal Web Services gives developers the tools they need and access to a marketplace with a set of integrated third-party services. It’s best suited for startups or individual teams that want high-performance and pay-as-you-go cost.

PCF Dev

This fully encapsulated instance of Pivotal Cloud Foundry in a single virtual machine offers the opportunity to develop apps using an offline environment. PCF Dev is ideal for experimenting in a safe environment, developing on the go, or setting up a quick test lab for a hackathon—basically anytime you need agility to be king!
