Pivotal and VMware are partnering to deliver well-managed, agile and secure data and application infrastructure for VMware environments across public, private and hybrid clouds. Pivotal tc Server formerly known as VMware vFabric tc Server, is now part of the Pivotal portfolio of products.

Pivotal tc Server provides enterprise users with the lightweight server they want paired with the operational control, advanced diagnostics, and mission-critical support capabilities businesses need.

The best place to build and run Java Spring applications

Pivotal tc Server, the best place to build and run Java Spring applications, provides enterprise users with the lightweight server they want paired with the operational management, advanced diagnostics, and mission-critical support capabilities businesses need. Designed to be a drop-in replacement for Apache Tomcat, Pivotal tc Server ensures a seamless migration path for existing custom-built and commercial software applications already certified for Tomcat.

Lightweight Application Server Optimized for Virtual Environments

Pivotal tc Server provides a lean platform for running modern applications and is ideally suited for the virtualized datacenter. Thanks to its very small footprint and lean approach (Pivotal tc Server can even run as an embedded library in a Java application), Pivotal tc Server typically requires significantly less computing resources compared with typical application servers, enabling greater application server density within a virtual environment. An integrated experience with VMware tools means applications can be easily deployed and managed.

Pack More Java VMs onto Each VMware vSphere Host

vFabric Elastic Memory for Java (EM4J) enables memory to be shared dynamically among tc Server instances without sacrificing performance. Working in concert with VMware vSphere®, EM4J's memory balloon functionality lets you create smaller virtual machines for running tc Server, and deploy more of these VMs on each vSphere host, thus squeezing maximum value from existing core hardware infrastructure. Administrators achieve greater server consolidation, which lowers the cost of hardware, service, management, maintenance, and energy. Developers gain flexibility and headroom in specifying VM capacities, shortening development time and helping ensure successful rollouts.

Increase Developer Productivity, Deliver Applications in Minutes

With built-in Spring Insight, Pivotal tc Server helps to dramatically increase development productivity, giving Java developers unparalleled insight into the performance and behavior of their Spring applications. Developers gain a deep understanding of application performance characteristics by isolating transaction traces and quickly jumping to the problematic code. Early detection, analysis and diagnosis of underperforming application areas enable developers to deliver high-performance applications faster than ever before.
