While Pivotal Cloud Foundry enables infrastructure automation for Digital Enterprises, Aerospike provides the database that can efficiently operate both as an Enterprise Cache & Operational Datastore to address the challenge of building scalable Systems of Engagement (SOE). The core element of SOE is a highly performant database. Aerospike has launched three different Pivotal Cloud Foundry integrations - “Aerospike EE Service Broker”, “Aerospike EE Managed Service” and “Aerospike EE OnDemand Service ”. Pivotal customers can benefit from all the integrations dynamically scaling up and down, as the requirements demand.
Aerospike EE OnDemand Service for PCF allows customers to configure and deploy multiple Aerospike clusters in their Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployment dynamically.
Aerospike EE Managed Service for PCF allows customers to configure and deploy a single Managed Service Aerospike cluster in their Pivotal Cloud Foundry environment.
Simplified Developer Access
Aerospike EE Service Broker for PCF allows customers to configure and interface with an externally managed Aerospike cluster from their Pivotal Cloud Foundry Applications, typically used for extremely stringent SLAs.
Aerospike is a High-Performing Systems-of-Engagement Database. Aerospike’s architecture includes the unique Hybrid-Memory architecture, combining solid-state drive (SSD) and DRAM to achieve one million transactions per second throughput with millisecond latency. Its hybrid-memory architecture, optimized for flash-drive storage, uniquely provides customers with unprecedented advantages to build cache-less architectures for their systems of engagement / edge systems / operational systems at low TCO, while at the same time yielding very high-predictable performance. Given its key-value structure, predictable performance, self-healing cluster management, and no-shard abilities – it is very well suited for use cases that are “mission-critical” and “real-time” in nature. These core abilities of Aerospike enable it to be a perfect match for Gartner’s definition of HTAP (Hybrid Transactional / Analytical Processing) architecture.
Option to broker a connection to a service running external to Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
Option for fully automated management of the service on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Monitoring, failure recovery, and software updates with zero-to-minimal downtime.
Version choice. Operators can let developers choose between multiple versions of the software when creating an instance.
The service is documented with instructions for setup and operation.
Supports high availability against internal service failures to minimize downtime for bound applications.
Get visibility into details of service operation through standard monitoring and logging tools for products and Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
Developers have control over when to upgrade to new versions, subject to policies set by operators, so that app modifications and downtime can be managed.
“Launching Aerospike on Pivotal Cloud Foundry is a key part of our strategy to support on-premise cloud-based deployment for our customers. At the same time, Pivotal can now offer Aerospike’s unparalleled speed at scale as an integral part of their PCF-based PaaS offering. We believe that the excellent synergies offered by using Aerospike on Pivotal Cloud Foundry will help our joint customers embrace Digital Transformation quickly and easily.“

The Aerospike tiles can be downloaded from the Pivotal Network and then uploaded into your Pivotal Cloud Foundry environment. Both the Aerospike EE Managed Service and the Aerospike EE OnDemand Service require a valid Aerospike EE license in order to configure and deploy the tiles. Contact Aerospike in order to obtain a valid license.
Once configured and deployed, each of the Aerospike tiles will allow developers to bind their applications to an Aerospike database.
