Pivotal Launches App Suite

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Enterprise Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Pivotal has announced the availability of the Pivotal App Suite, which brings together Pivotal’s open source investments in Spring IO, Groovy & Grails, RabbitMQ, Redis, Apache Tomcat, and the Apache HTTP Server, and combines them with Pivotal tc Server, Pivotal Web Server, and Pivotal RabbitMQ into a single platform product offering. 

The intent of The Pivotal App Suite is to simplify the process of purchasing an application development platform and middleware by providing a collection of commercial products and open source support, while providing the flexibility to choose which components to run and where to run them. 

As architecture needs and runtime environment change over time, the Pivotal App Suite provides flexibility through transferrable cross-platform licensing and support, including physical, virtual, and cloud environments which provide the ability to change the runtime architecture at will.

The Pivotal App Suite is a platform based on open standards for developing and deploying modern, scalable applications. It contains web and Java application servers, cross-platform asynchronous messaging, in-memory data caching, and the latest innovations in JVM-based application development. The Pivotal App Suite includes the following:

Commercial Products

- Pivotal tc Server: tc Runtime 7 and 8 with Spring Insight and Gemfire Session and Hibernate caching
- Pivotal RabbitMQ: includes JMS client
- Pivotal Web Server: Based on Apache 2.2 and 2.4

Production Support for open source projects

- Spring IO (includes frameworks and runtimes on Spring.io such as Spring Boot, Spring XD (now GA), Spring Batch, Spring Integration, Spring Security, Spring Tool Suite, etc.)
- Reactor
- Redis
- Groovy & Grails
- Apache Tomcat – including Tomcat 8
- Apache HTTP Server – including Apache 2.4
- RabbitMQ

The Pivotal App Suite is licensed to run on three types of compute environments:

- Physical, bare-metal computing environments

- Private virtualized and cloud computing environments such as VMware

- Public Cloud IaaS computing environments such as Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, etc.

The Pivotal App Suite is sold based on processing power, and the metric is the most granular unit of processing power that translates across all environments - the core equivalent. On a physical computer this is simply the total count of  CPU cores in the environment. Similarly in a virtualized environment, such as VMware, this is the count of virtual cores in the environment. (Virtual machines are assigned one or more vCPUs, and if these vCPUs are configured with a single virtual core each then licensing the Pivotal App Suite is a simple count of the vCPUS allocated to the environment.)  

The leading public IaaS providers all provide specifications as to the number of virtual cores or vCPUs in the environments they provide, and the Pivotal App Suite is licensed in these environments by counting the total of the most granular processing unit provided - typically vCPUs or Virtual Cores. Examples: Amazon , Google , Microsoft , HP , RackSpace

Licensing The Pivotal App Suite according to the amount of compute processing power provides the ability to allocate to the environment and enable the opportunity to freely move workloads across physical environments and into or out of public or private virtualized cloud environments. 

Because licensing is strictly according to compute power, there is no restriction as to how few or how many Pivotal App Suite components that can run together in a licensed environment, and providing the freedom to change the mix of runtime components as needed to accommodate changing workloads and evolving architectures.

475 Tax Deductions for Businesses and Self-Employed Individuals

Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
