Pivotal Releases More Support for Kubernetes

Pivotal Software, a cloud-native platform provider, is introducing the alpha version of PAS on Kubernetes, as well as launching new products based on PAS features that improve the developer and operator experience when using Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is becoming an increasingly ubiquitous part of the cloud infrastructure. But many organizations are struggling to bring it into production because it’s so complex.

Pivotal, and its partners at VMware, aim to solve this problem with the Pivotal Container Service (PKS), which enables small teams of operators to manage numerous Kubernetes clusters at scale.

Pivotal is now bringing its years of expertise gained building Cloud Foundry to make it easier for developers to deploy and run software on Kubernetes.

The alpha version of PAS on Kubernetes brings the popular “cf push” experience to Kubernetes, making it easier for developers to focus on code, and lets the platform stitch together the required components for software deployment, networking, monitoring, and logging.

"Today’s announcements have been a long time in the making, and are the natural next step in our platform’s evolution. We helped start the Kubo open-source project in 2017, and launched the Pivotal Container Service with VMware last year, which is already being used by over 140 organizations,” said Rob Mee, CEO of Pivotal. “This announcement marks the next leap forward of our platform’s capabilities, and will help organizations achieve meaningful business outcomes on top of Kubernetes.”

Pivotal also introduced new products for Kubernetes based on PAS features. In May, the company introduced the first two products: general availability of Pivotal Spring Runtime, and the alpha version of Pivotal Service Mesh.

Now Pivotal has introduced the alpha version of the third product—Pivotal Build Service—and announced that the alpha version of RabbitMQ on Kubernetes will be available soon.
