Enterprise adoption of cloud computing has caused a shift in application architecture. New software patterns, collectively called cloud-native, now deliver unprecedented application resilience and flexibility. To enjoy these benefits, you need a new type of application runtime—one that supports continuous delivery and horizontal scalability.
Ensure an idea in the morning ends up in production that afternoon. Application Service enables rapid time-to-value for your custom code by managing everything else for you.
Efficiently manage Day 2 operations for high-velocity dev teams. Application Service uses Cloud Foundry BOSH to help you deliver enterprise SLAs as your business grows.
Improve your security posture across your application portfolio. Application Service is highly automated, dramatically lowering risks posed by manual processes.

Focus on your code and let Application Service do the rest. When you deploy new code with a simple cf push, it goes right into production. Dependency management, load balancing, container orchestration, logging, and auditing are done for you!
Turnkey microservices operations and security
Spring Cloud Services brings microservices best practices to Application Service. It includes Config Server, Service Registry, and Circuit Breaker Dashboard.
A native Windows and .NET experience
Run new apps built with .NET Core. Run your legacy .NET Framework apps on Application Service, too, using the .NET Hosted Web Core buildpack. Push applications to containers running on Windows Server 2016.
Use Steeltoe to run .NET microservices on Application Service. Steeltoe helps .NET client apps integrate with Spring Cloud Services for resilient, scalable microservices.
Pivotal App Metrics monitoring
Pivotal App Metrics is monitoring reimagined for microservices. Intuitive, time-based displays of events, logs, metrics, and distributed tracing show the full picture of system behavior.
Easily extend your apps with Pivotal Marketplace
Browse dozens of industry-leading application and data services. Easily add them to your code with service brokers.
Volume services for legacy apps
Run stateful apps in a modern application runtime using the Volume Services NFS v3 service broker.
Support for multiple routing protocols
Run applications that use HTTP/s and TCP routes.
Buildpacks to simplify deployment
Buildpacks provide framework and runtime dependencies for your apps. Write your code, then cf push. Application Service provides everything it needs to operate.
Automated horizontal scaling
App Autoscaler automates horizontal scaling. Add more capacity to your applications when traffic spikes. Scale down as traffic returns to normal. Set thresholds and triggers.
Fully integrated with continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools
Automate your software build, test, and delivery pipelines with Application Service and CI/CD products such as Concourse. Treat every commit as a delivery!
Automate operational tasks to increase stability and availability. Application Service helps your ops team keep applications online serving customers.
Manage services, not servers
Embrace immutable infrastructure and boost availability for your apps. Deliver superior uptime with four layers of HA and zero-downtime deployments.
Control what’s running on Application Service with versioned buildpacks that contain dependencies for different frameworks—Java, .NET, Ruby, php, Node.js, and more.
Pivotal App Metrics for troubleshooting
Pivotal App Metrics logs and displays application telemetry to help your engineers troubleshoot microservices architectures. Agentless install and zero-configuration setup.
Automated logging and metrics
Loggregator collects all logs and metrics from your applications and the platform.
Supports HTTP/S and TCP routing
Run web apps and other workloads on Application Service, with support for both protocols.
Set and enforce permissions
Configure enterprise role-based access controls to segment permissions across your organization. Ensure developers and operators have the right levels of access.
Integrates with VMware NSX to simplify enforcement of corporate network policies
Use Application Service with NSX to create a common operational model for cloud-native and traditional apps. This helps operations teams implement InfoSec policies across the entire organization.
Reduce risk. Application Service includes cloud-native security capabilities to mitigate risks posed by malware, advanced persistent threats, and leaked credentials.
Containers in Application Service run secure by default
AppArmor, Seccomp, and unprivileged container access are enabled out of the box.
Single sign-on (SSO) service simplifies identity management
Application Service includes an SSO service. It uses the OAuth2 protocol and integrates with popular identity management systems via LDAP.
Application isolation boosts compliance
Isolation segments direct a set of applications to a specific set of host virtual machines (VMs). This isolates the apps and their data from other workloads, meeting key compliance criteria.
TLS improves security for your enterprise applications
SSL/TLS certificates secure HTTP traffic into your deployment. To secure non-HTTP traffic, terminate TLS at your load balancer or at the application with TCP Routing.
“Deny by default” networking with VMware NSX
Integration with NSX simplifies network microsegment for your cloud-native apps. This helps you protect against advanced persistent threats and coordinated attacks.
Evolve important business apps interacting with middleware stacks that are 10 – 15 years old. Eliminate inflexible app servers and stacks that don’t support automation. Take a pragmatic approach to transforming legacy apps: use a modern cloud-native architecture and modern DevOps approach to refactor and replatform. Better align crucial applications to rapidly changing requirements.
Adopt a microservices architecture and boost velocity. Encourage rapid iteration and small changes to discrete components of a system. Deploy microservices via continuous delivery and give developers a frictionless path to production. Deploy small changes frequently and see big benefits over time. Run apps on a runtime that makes it easy to do the right thing and further your DevOps culture.
Use cloud-native security principles to automate compliance tasks. Build automated systems that log every activity. Use an operational toolchain that can rapidly patch and update components as new bits become available. Embrace immutable infrastructure.
Embrace Pivotal’s agile and lean approaches to digital transformation. Build new cloud-native apps featuring an API-first design. Deliver features to users across many devices. Operate at start-up speeds, reducing time to market for new code.
Deploy on an application runtime proven to handle high volumes of API calls. Deliver superior uptime for enterprise apps and ensure a responsive end-user experience during peak demand. Boost user satisfaction while reducing risk.
Use analytics and an application runtime to turn data from thousands of sensors into actionable insights that reduce cost and improve product quality. Accelerate time-to-insight, from weeks to minutes.
Focus your teams on the activities that drive business value. Let Application Service handle infrastructure, OS patching, and container orchestration. Use the product’s built-in tools for scaling, metrics, microservice patterns, and modern stream processing. Focus on creating great custom apps!
Spring Cloud Services (SCS) for Pivotal Platform includes components of Spring Cloud projects, like Spring Cloud Netflix and Spring Cloud Config. Use SCS build cloud-native Java apps and microservices.
Pivotal Platform uses a scalable container orchestration engine. Pivotal Platform supports Docker images, and runC. Default security features include AppArmour, Secomp, and unprivileged access.
Pivotal App Metrics stores telemetry data for your apps (logs, metrics, and events). The module renders this information visually, along an interactive timeline. Consequently, it’s easier to understand sources of latency and system failure.
Cloud Foundry BOSH automates the underlying cloud infrastructure of your Pivotal Platform deployment. It features a Cloud Provider Interface that interacts with the compute, storage, and networking APIs of your chosen cloud.
Build and run microservices-based applications with Pivotal Platform on Microsoft Azure. Deploy Pivotal Platform in any Azure region. Extend your apps with services like Azure Service Bus and Azure Event Hubs.
