Pivotal Ready Architecture (PRA) is an appliance that’s purpose-built for running Pivotal Cloud Foundry. The stack includes PCF and VMware virtualization atop Dell EMC hyper-converged VxRail infrastructure. The solution delivers a fast, simple way to deploy and run Pivotal Cloud Foundry in your data center.
Cloud‑native patterns are a modern approach to application architecture, development and delivery that has emerged as a natural response to the changes in business needs and infrastructure capabilities. This new model directly increases the speed and agility of application delivery for IT organizations and has proven its benefits for startups and established enterprises alike. Pivotal Ready Architecture is the fastest way to get Pivotal Cloud Foundry up and running in your data center. Accelerate your transformation with an “it just works” experience. PRA supports Pivotal Application Service (PAS) and Pivotal Container Service (PKS).
Pivotal Cloud Foundry is a cloud-native platform for building and deploying next-generation applications. Based on open source technology, PCF enables your enterprise to rapidly deliver new experiences to customers by building and deploying new applications quickly. Your teams can use any language/runtime and leverage various backing services, deferring much of the operational complexity to the platform.
