Pivotal Application Service (PAS) is an abstraction for applications. The world’s largest brands deploy and run their most important workloads on PAS (formerly known as Elastic Runtime). With PAS, development teams can increase speed and deploy code to production thousands of times per month. Use PAS to run Java, .NET, and Node apps on PCF.
Pivotal Container Service (PKS) is an abstraction for containers. Enterprises know PKS is the easiest way to run and manage Kubernetes clusters in their data centers. Use PKS to run developer-built containers, ISV apps, ElasticSearch, and Apache Spark on the PCF platform.
Pivotal Function Service (PFS) is serverless programming for any cloud. Developers use PFS to trigger functions via HTTP or message brokers. The service connects to popular messaging services such as Kafka, AWS Kinesis, Google Pub/Sub, and RabbitMQ. PFS is based on Kubernetes. That means you can use familiar, container-based workflows for serverless scenarios on PCF.
Brokered services introduce a variety of add-on capabilities with minimal operational overhead. This helps developers easily extend their applications to address complex requirements. Use brokered services to add messaging queues, relational databases, and machine learning to your apps running on the PCF platform.
Supports popular languages
PCF runs Java, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, and more. Use your preferred framework to push code.
PCF supports the OCI format for Docker images. Run platform-built and developer-built containers.
Supported by a single vendor.
Pivotal provides support, plus ongoing maintenance for the entire PCF platform: the operating system (OS), runtimes, development frameworks, and much more.
Continuously deploy custom code thousands of times per month with no manual effort.
The PCF platform continuously updates itself through Cloud Foundry BOSH—all with zero downtime.
Easily operate fleets of servers with a highly automated platform.
Operators can embrace immutable infrastructure with Cloud Foundry BOSH.
Run your applications where you want—in the public cloud or in your data center.
PCF is multi-cloud, making your applications portable across infrastructure targets.
Never patch an OS again.
PCF includes an embedded OS (both Linux and Windows). OS updates are rolled as part of the platform.
Take a modern, highly automated approach to security.
PCF makes it easier for you to keep pace with the tidal wave of industry regulations and compliance standards.
PCF encrypts data in transit with the IPsec Add-on. Use the native encryption features of your chosen target IaaS to secure data at rest.
Patch quickly with zero downtime.
Cloud Foundry BOSH, the platform’s deployment toolchain, allows you to “repair” vulnerable software as soon as updates are available. PCF’s rolling update capability means you can apply patches without downtime. Make updates during business hours with confidence!
Container networking enforces a "zero trust model" for your apps.
With PCF’s container-to-container networking capabilities, you get a network fabric that supports firewall rules at an app-level. Gain more security and control over your app-to-app traffic and adhere to corporate InfoSec guidelines.
Repave often and protect against advanced persistent threats.
Use PCF to regularly repave your environment from a known good state using Cloud Foundry BOSH.
Secure credential management with CredHub.
What’s CredHub? It’s a central point of control for credential generation, storage, lifecycle management, logging, and access control. Use CredHub and PCF to reduce the risk posed by leaked credentials.
Four layers of high availability.
PCF includes redundancy and resiliency across four layers of the stack: monitored processes, health management for app instances, health management for virtual machines (VMs), and availability zones. In case of failure in any of these layers, PCF recovers to keep serving traffic.
Multi-cloud resiliency patterns.
Use PCF to build and operate highly available deployments across clouds.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry is engineered to deliver a single software platform to run an entire enterprise—capable of scaling to support hundreds of IT teams and thousands of applications.
