Pivotal-sponsored SpringOne 2GX Kicks off in Dallas

Microservices, Enterprise PaaS and Big Data are Front and Center Themes for the Premiere Gathering of the Spring IO Open Source Java Developer Community



San Francisco, September 8, 2014 - Pivotal, the company at the intersection of big data, PaaS and agile development, together with some of the globe’s most dynamic technology companies, today kicked off SpringOne 2GX 2014 in Dallas, TX. The premier conference for the 8-million strong community of Java developers, architects and operations teams using the popular open source Spring IO®, Groovy, Grails, Cloud Foundry®, Apache™ Hadoop® and Tomcat technologies, is expected to draw close to 1,000 attendees.

Big themes in this year’s presentations and discussions include microservices - or building small things through faster production cycles - and how the Spring XD big data application runtime advances next-generation cloud architectures.

Pivotal will showcase new Spring IO extensions and Pivotal CF which both enable developers to rapidly develop resilient, distributed micro-service style architectures, helping enterprises create applications with greater speed and less risk. Use cases for mobile and big data are growing rapidly and enterprises are increasingly seek faster, simpler ways to consume and leverage mobile data exhaust. Pivotal will showcase Spring XD (part of Spring IO), a unified runtime for data ingestion, real time analytics, batch processing and data export.

'For the SpringOne 2GX 2013 conference, we announced a roadmap for Spring IO to help developers create great apps' said Hugh Williams, SVP of R&D at Pivotal. 'In 2014, Pivotal has delivered on that vision by integrating Spring IO Foundation projects, making things simpler and allowing developers to be more productive through micro-service-style architectures and big data applications.'

The SpringOne 2GX 2014 conference will feature Spring IO advances and the latest insights from industry leading, subject experts. Highlights will include:

  • The power of Pivotal CF, the leading enterprise PaaS (platform-as-a-service) and Spring IO provide powerful automation, resiliency and the productivity required to achieve a micro-service style architecture
  • Spring IO Coordination: new capabilities for Spring IO that tackle common distributed system patterns
  • Spring IO Execution updates: Spring XD, Spring Boot and Grails
  • Spring IO Foundation updates: Spring Framework, Reactor, Groovy and more
  • Reactive Streams: ideal for managing IoT applications, this industry initiative provides a standard for asynchronous stream processing with non-blocking back pressure on the JVM
