At EMC World 2014 in Las Vegas this week Pivotal and VMware (VMW) announced an enterprise-class hybrid platform-as-a-service (PaaS) on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service will support the latest release of Pivotal's Cloud Fountry enterprise PaaS to deliver a well-managed, agile development and operator platform for mobile and next generation web applications that leverage VMware environments across public, private and hybrid clouds.
“VMware vCloud Hybrid Service makes it possible for new and existing applications to run on the same platform as they have on premises, simplifying the transition to a hybrid cloud future,” said Bill Fathers, senior vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit at VMware. “Enterprise developers using vCloud Hybrid Service can leverage Pivotal CF to take advantage of the industry’s most powerful enterprise platform for building, deploying and scaling modern applications. We look forward to continuing our work with Pivotal to deliver the incredible agility and productivity of Pivotal CF to vCloud Hybrid Service customers, as well as advance the Cloud Foundry ecosystem to foster open innovation and community growth.”
The turnkey hybrid PaaS experience enables application developers to benefit from the consistent management, security and resiliency of a VMware’s hybrid cloud infrastructure, simplifying deployment of both existing and new cloud-native applications to the public cloud. Expected to be available on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service this quarter, Pivotal CF, powered by Cloud Foundry, is a commercially supported, PaaS technology for application development and operations.
“We’re excited to add VMware vCloud Hybrid Service as another IaaS layer that is interoperable with Pivotal CF,” said Rob Mee, Pivotal senior vice president for Cloud Platform and Pivotal Labs. “The ability to move applications between private and public clouds with no code or configuration changes solves a major pain point for customers. The simplicity, speed and automation will allow developers critical cycles to create and deploy new or existing applications and for IT to scale them in hybrid cloud environments.”
