Joint Solution

VMware advanced virtualization technology maximizes your datacenter investments while ensuring enterprise security and stability. VMware and Pivotal have integrated this market leading virtual infrastructure with the leading cloud-native application platform.

Resting on VMware virtualized infrastructure, Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) transforms it into a cloud-native platform that supports DevOps collaboration, enables continuous delivery, and accelerates the pace and quality of software delivery.

Specifically, with Pivotal and VMware, enterprises gain the following capabilities:

Developer Benefits
  • Use either Docker images or directly push code in Java, Ruby, PHP, or Python
  • Automated and consistent build and deploy with buildpacks
  • Built in log aggregation
  • Self service capacity provisioning
  • Discovery and binding from a growing collection of developer services
Operator Benefits
  • Automated container scheduling and simple, horizontal scaling
  • Platform enforced application isolation and network security
  • Robust security constructs and role based access with 3rd party directory integrations
  • Automated metrics, health monitoring, and failure recovery
  • Zero downtime application and platform updates
Deployment Options

VMware offers two different options for the virtualized infrastructure underlying PCF.

PCF + vSphere

Market leading vSphere builds the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) foundation for a uniform hybrid cloud with best in class compute, storage, network virtualization, automation, and management offerings. vSphere can simultaneously support traditional and cloud-native workloads.



Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Choose vSphere as the underlying virtualization technology for PCF if:

  • You want to maximize existing investments in vSphere and related VMware technologies
  • You need to support existing as well as cloud-native workloads
  • You want to leverage the large existing VMware ecosystem of partners and tools
Pivotal-VMware Cloud-Native Stack (PCF + Photon)

VMware Photon Platform is purpose built for the scale, speed and dynamic elasticity demands of cloud-native workloads. Photon Platform is streamlined to provide a simple architecture that supports the continuous and rapid provisioning and disposal of infrastructure that is typical of cloud-native workloads.


Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Choose Photon Platform as the underlying virtualization technology for PCF if:

  • You are working on new, cloud-native application development without a need to support existing applications
  • You need the infrastructure to quickly adapt to infrastructure churn resulting from dynamic scale
  • You want a single, tightly integrated cloud-native platform with a unified purchase, deploy, manage, and support model
