Pivotal Cloud Foundry can now deploy applications natively on Amazon Web Services, offering a single deployment experience across public and private clouds. This multi-cloud accessibility ensures applications can be easily migrated between public and private infrastructure to create true hybrid cloud support.
Consistent Deployment Experience Across Clouds
The platform provides a consistent deployment pipeline across IT environments, whether deploying on Amazon or behind the firewall. Instead of managing each cloud deployment with different processes and tools, IT teams can invest in a single toolchain to build, run and manage applications. This common platform minimizes the refactoring work required for developers and operators to deploy and manage applications in the new environment, making it easy to move applications on to and out of out of Amazon Web Services.
While adding support for AWS expands options for our customers, PCF is also supported on vCloud Air, vSphere and OpenStack with support for more cloud options on the roadmap. With a standard platform across clouds, Pivotal reduces the undifferentiated heavy lifting required to develop multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. This lets developers take advantage of on demand, self-service provisioning while IT operations retains full visibility and control of deployment environments.
PCF on AWS release is deployed using the Amazon API to automatically spin up a complete platform stack onto a private VPC subnet. The full PCF Service catalog is available to be deployed on standard EC2 instances and administered by Pivotal Ops Manager, with the additional option for developers to connect to AWS-specific services on demand.
