Pivotal Announces Pivotal CF Mobile Services

Pivotal has announced Pivotal CF Mobile Services, an addition to the company's Pivotal CF enterprise platform as a service (PaaS). Pivotal CF Mobile Services provide a set of advanced mobile capabilities that work with previously announced data services to enable developer self-service productivity and operational efficiency required to build and deploy next-generation applications faster. PaaS is critical for mobile. With mobile devices and operating systems cycling at a rate of less than a year, enterprises need a platform to handle the rapid iterations, instant scaling and built-for-cloud architectures—all of which Pivotal's PaaS does. Some of the technology and design of the Pivotal CF Mobile Services technology comes from Xtreme Labs. Pivotal CF Mobile Services include back-end push notifications, API gateway and data sync to reduce latency, improve user experience and simplify mobile development. Existing Mobile Application Development Platforms and Mobile Backend-as-a-Service tools are not integrated into a PaaS that can run all the backend middleware—app servers, databases, Hadoop, and more—that is required to power modern mobile applications. Consequently, this integration must be done manually, bogging down application efforts. In contrast, Pivotal CF Mobile Services run on, and are fully integrated with, Pivotal CF and thus inherit all of its capabilities. Pivotal CF Mobile Services are expected to be generally available later in 2014.

Pivotal Software, Inc. and EMC Corporation Announces Availability of New Data Lake Hadoop Solution

Pivotal Software, Inc. and EMC Corporation announced a new Data Lake Hadoop solution that combines massively scalable enterprise storage arrays with big data and analytics capabilities. The solution brings a new level of scalability, reliability and performance to HDFS-based file systems, giving enterprises all the benefits of HDFS through the world's most advanced turnkey Hadoop solution for critical production workloads. The Data Lake Hadoop solution marries EMC Isilon's scale-out storage, with Pivotal HD (Hadoop Distribution) and Pivotal HAWQ, a massively parallel processing SQL compliant query engine. Data Lakes are rapidly emerging around HDFS-based clusters to handle complex new workloads and unstructured data. 67% of all capacity shipped is unstructured data, and by 2017, fueled by the Internet of Things and the proliferation of devices, 80% of all capacity shipped will be unstructured data. The Pivotal/EMC Isilon Data Lake Hadoop solution harnesses Apache Hadoop technology, providing enterprises the tools to build a modern data lake infrastructure. Pivotal and EMC have worked together to test, benchmark and size the Data Lake Hadoop solution. Enterprises will benefit from: A highly scalable, efficient infrastructure that lowers costs, and easily keeps pace with growing data storage requirements: The new Isilon x410 delivers 70% increase in throughput, and 33% lower costs in MBPS, balancing high capacity and performance. Powerful, easy-to-use analytic tools unlock the business value of information that lives in data: Pivotal HAWQ is the world's most advanced analytics platform for Apache Hadoop. With its cutting edge architecture, HAWQ delivers 21x faster performance against other common SQL query engines on Apache Hadoop and can support 3x the number of queries with its robust SQL compliance. Enterprise class data protection to maximize availability and security options to meet business requirements. The new Data Lake Hadoop bundle consists of pre-configured EMC Isilon X410 nodes, HAWQ subscriptions and Pivotal HD, Pivotal's enterprise version of Apache Hadoop. Pivotal HAWQ is the most advanced SQL standard compliance query engine for Hadoop in the market, and its massively parallel processing (MPP) is built on a decade of innovation from analytical data warehouse technologies.

Pivotal Announces Release of Version 1.0 of Spring IO

Pivotal announced that it has released Version 1.0 of Spring IO(TM). Open source, lean, and modular, Spring IO brings together the core Spring APIs into a single, cohesive and versioned foundation for modern applications to help Java developers innovate and develop applications faster. Spring IO supports any modern enterprise Java workload -- mobile, web apps, integration, web services, batch, relational, noSQL, reactive and big data applications, as well as APIs and micro services. Enterprises save time and costs, and can innovate and go to market faster. Version 1.0 creates a significantly easier way for enterprises to consume Spring, particularly in projects where multiple Spring IO components are used. By eliminating compatibility issues within Spring's broad project ecosystem and many popular third-party libraries, Spring IO is now simpler than ever. With a set of components all tested to work together, it saves weeks of tedious developer efforts to build and test a stack of compatible Spring and third-party technologies, thereby helping enterprises bring new applications to market more rapidly. Spring IO 1.0 is available now and includes all major Spring Projects, with the exception of Spring XD, which is expected to be generally available later 2014.
