Automate platform updates at enterprise scale
Keep your platform updated with CI/CD.
If you're using Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) to run your enterprise app portfolio, you likely have many platform deployments. This may include different cloud providers, geographic regions, and environment stages. This is a lot to manage, particularly with manual or scripted steps. Concourse for PCF can help accelerate platform management tasks like patching, upgrades, and backups.
In fact, Concourse tasks are a key part of Platform Automation for PCF. This Pivotal-supported solution provides flexible building blocks for you to create Concourse upgrade pipelines that meet the needs of your enterprise.
Automate the entire operational life cycle.
You can create dependable, consistent automated processes for maintaining your platform. Example operations include:
Treat your platform like a product.
When you manage your platform as a product, you regularly release updates and enhancements to your customers (in this case, your developers). Platform automation with Concourse can help you to implement new features and capabilities when they‘re available. This keeps your developers happy and continuously delivering value to your end customers.
And product owners must maintain constant vigilance on security. Pivotal ensures you have the latest patches to common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) relevant to the platform. Continuously delivering these security updates through platform automation can significantly improve your security profile.
