Pivotal Cloud Foundry Updated
September 26, 2018
Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) platform update includes updates that
simplify the operator experience, will include expanded multi-cloud
support to include AWS, and provide greater support for the .NET
Rapid Capacity Expansion Across Data Centers:Operators can now extend a single PCF deployment across multiple data center locations. This helps enterprises increase redundancy at the availability zone level for on-prem deployments with VMware vSphere and now OpenStack.
Embedded OS Updates: Pivotal has updated the operating systems that underpin PAS (Ubuntu 16.04) and PAS for Windows (Windows Server v1803) deployments. This helps keep systems running smoothly, and offloads the burden of OS management.
Upcoming PKS 1.2 Release
Kubernetes 1.11: PKS 1.2 will include Kubernetes 1.11, the latest GKE compatible, stable version of Kubernetes. PKS 1.2 is also Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) certified for Kubernetes conformance, assuring workload and application portability across other certified Kubernetes distributions.
User configurable logging options: PKS 1.2 will enable Developers to configure a namespace or cluster to emit logs to a specific destination, such as VMware vRealize Log Insight, without operator intervention.
“T-Mobile developers are always
innovating and pushing the Un-carrier revolution forward to take care of
our customers -- and Pivotal plays a key part in that by helping to
improve the scale, performance and availability of the apps our retail
and customer care teams use every day, ” said Chuck Knostman, VP of
Strategy and Technology at T-Mobile. “Pivotal has helped T-Mobile become
a leader in the open-source software community, recruit and empower
agile work teams, improve operational efficiency and accelerate speed of
deployment, and now we’re excited to be a part of the Pivotal Container
Service beta program that will allow our developers to create even more
cutting-edge customer experiences.”
Service Instance Sharing: Service instance sharing helps development teams be more productive. With this new feature, teams can easily and securely share data across microservices.
Greater encryption of data in transit. “Secure by default” is easier to achieve due to more platform components using direct network encryption via Transport Layer Security (TLS).
