Pivotal is committed to strong, open platforms and healthy open source communities. We contributed our code to start the Cloud Foundry Foundation, the Apache HAWQ project, the Apache Geode project, the Apache MADlib project, the Greenplum Database project, the Steeltoe project, and continue to be the primary contributor to the Spring Framework (the most popular Java application development framework for the enterprise) and other Spring-related projects.
Projects We Support
Cloud Foundry® is an open source Platform as a Service (PaaS), sponsored and led by Pivotal®, with contributions from a large ecosystem of organizations and individual developers. Cloud Foundry provides users with a choice of clouds, developer frameworks and application services, while increasing a user’s ability to build, test and scale applications. Cloud Foundry is released under the terms of the Apache License.
Kubernetes® is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up a system into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google®, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community. Kubernetes is released by the Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation under the terms of the Apache License 2.0.
Project Reactor, sponsored by Pivotal, is a fourth-generation Reactive library for building non-blocking applications on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) based on the Reactive Streams Specification. This foundation is used by the Spring Framework in version 5.0 and above. Project Reactor is released under the terms of the Apache License, version 2.0.
The Open Service Broker API project offers developers, ISVs, and SaaS vendors a single, simple, and elegant way to deliver services to applications running within cloud-native platforms such as Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. The “Open Service Broker API” is an API specification hosted by the Cloud Foundry Foundation (CFF).
Knative (pronounced “kay-nay-tiv”) is collection of components that provides the missing building blocks that developers need to create modern, source-centric, container-based cloud-native applications. The project helps cloud service providers and enterprise platform operators deliver a serverless experience to their developers running Function as a Service (FaaS), PaaS, and Container as a Service (CaaS) workloads using Kubernetes and Istio.
The Greenplum Database project, sponsored by Pivotal, is an advanced, fully featured data warehouse. It provides powerful and rapid analytics on petabyte scale data volumes. Uniquely geared toward big data analytics, Greenplum Database is powered by the world’s most advanced cost-based query optimizer delivering high analytical query performance on large data volumes.
Concourse is a continuous integration/continuous delivery tool developed by Pivotal for use with Cloud Foundry. Concourse can be used to automatically update and patch software, and can be used to test code commits before and after deployment. Sponsored by Pivotal, Concourse was recently named one of the 10 top open source tools of 2018.
Steeltoe is an open source project and is now a part of the .NET Foundation enabling .NET developers to implement industry standard best practices when building resilient microservices for the cloud. The Steeltoe client libraries enable .NET Core and .NET Framework apps to easily leverage Netflix Eureka, Hystrix, Spring Cloud Config Server, and Cloud Foundry services.
Apache HAWQ is an advanced, elastic SQL query engine that combines exceptional MPP-based analytics performance and robust ANSI SQL compliance. Quickly unlock insights and drive business transformation, natively, from Hadoop data using familiar SQL semantics. HAWQ, together with the integrated Apache MADlib project for scalable in-database analytics with its data-parallel implementations of mathematical, statistical, graph and machine learning methods for structured and unstructured data, enables companies to swiftly iterate deep, predictive analytics on datasets of virtually any size - from small to enormous.
ODPi is a nonprofit organization committed to simplification & standardization of the big data marketplace. It provides a framework for vendors of Apache Hadoop distributions, their ISV partners, and their end user customers to collaboratively develop reference specifications covering multiple technologies related to Hadoop. This allows for portability of applications developed for Hadoop across multiple vendors distributions, helping unite the ecosystem for the benefit of end users.
PostgreSQL, often simply Postgres, is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) with an emphasis on extensibility and standards compliance. It can handle workloads ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications (or for data warehousing) with many concurrent users; on macOS Server, PostgreSQL is the default database; and it is also available for Microsoft Windows and Linux (supplied in most distributions).
Robolectric is a unit test framework for Android that runs tests directly in the JVM without booting the Android emulator. This saves on app development time and makes it simple to test drive an application at every stage of development.
Sprout is a repeatable, documented, decomposable, shareable set of configuration scripts for development workstations. Based on Opscode’s Chef, Sprout automates standardization of workstations configuration. It can install development tools and applications, enabling development teams to create business value more quickly.
Girls Who Code
Pivotal is an annual sponsor of a summer immersion program for Girls Who Code (GWC), the organization aiming to close the gender gap in technology. By sponsoring their Bay Area program and meetups around the U.S., Pivotal wants to help GWC build the pipeline of talented female engineers.
