Cloud-Native Java, Now on Microsoft Azure

As the premier application framework for Java developers worldwide, Spring is rapidly becoming the cornerstone of modern Java enterprise applications.

Enterprise Java developers writing cloud-native applications on Azure can quickly build microservices-based applications with Spring Cloud and Spring Boot. With Spring Cloud, developers can build complex, resilient microservices reusing many of the common patterns for distributed, scalable services such as leader election, circuit breaker, and many more. Spring Boot further accelerates the development cycle by supporting an opinionated approach to Spring that emphasizes convention over configuration and streamlines getting started and rapid development cycle.

And since Pivotal Cloud Foundry offers first-class support for Spring, deploying and operating these applications has never been easier.

“Azure demand is so high that we already have Fortune 100 customers using Pivotal Cloud Foundry on Azure.”
