Pivotal Grows its PaaS and Big Data Play with Hybrid Cloud Use





Pivotal is growing the capability and enterprise audience of its Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.4 with hybrid cloud infrastructure support for Amazon Web Services, in addition to OpenStack and VMware vSphere and vCloud Air, which were already supported. Other Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.4 highlights include enhanced auto-scaling, usage tracking, notifications and integration with Microsoft Windows Active Directory management. Pivotal says it is responding to customer demand for portability of applications and services between public and private clouds, as well as between test and development and production. The company continues to deepen its application development and deployment capability as it grows its enterprise business. With its new Diego workload scheduler and upcoming Docker support, Pivotal is also competing with PaaS rivals and others to support Docker and containers as extensively as the key languages, other application components and infrastructures of polyglot programming.
