Pivotal Software Chooses Hybrid Cloud Platform to Connect Far-Flung Global Startup
As a joint venture of EMC and VMware, Pivotal Software was created with 1,400 employees, global operations, multiple mature business units and development projects, and no shared systems or facilities. The firm’s new IT group chose to deploy its core IT infrastructure on the VMware vCloud Air platform, connecting disparate parts and providing a foundation for shared systems and services.
Pivotal Software enables the creation of modern, cloud-native software applications that leverage big data and agile development practices. The company’s products combine apps, data, and analytics on an enterprise platform as a service powered by Cloud Foundry. Launched in 2013, Pivotal is a joint venture of EMC Corporation and VMware that brings together products, open source development projects, employees, and business units from both parent companies.
“If we had followed the traditional model of building or own physical infrastructure first, it would have diverted too much time, talent, and capital from the more important tasks of building the company. We were able to spin up the core IT infrastructure for a global organization very much quickly, with a minimal IT staff.”
“VMware vCloud Air is elastic, has lower-cost maintenance, has quicker deployment and has a global reach. It has been a solid start. Once we were up and running, it has been pretty seamless. VMware support is excellent and we will definitely continue to expand our use of VMWare vCloud Air to run more mission-critical apps for Pivotal.”
