Application developer-ready Pivotal Cloud Foundry architectures in the Advanced Technology Center

Global organizations, in every industry, are facing new complexities with the underlying infrastructure needed to develop, deploy and deliver business-critical applications in a cloud-first reality. Many organizations quickly find out that to be successful, they must first adopt a multicloud platform. Then they must take on the challenge of embracing containers and microservice-based solutions that then requires them to adopt the necessary tools and concepts around continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).

WWT understands the many challenges in building, consuming and supporting this sort of architecture. To address these challenges, WWT stood up a cloud-native infrastructure called Pivotal Ready Architecture (PRA) in our Advanced Technology Center to show customers the art of the possible.

Watch this two-minute video to learn more about how the Pivotal Ready Architecture can help developers at your organization:

The Pivotal Ready Architecture provides organizations with a tested and validated reference architecture that is a cloud-agnostic framework that can go from nothing to a developer-ready infrastructure in weeks instead of months or years. PRA combines the following enterprise solutions from Dell EMC, VMware and Pivotal:

  • Dell EMC's HCI solution VxRail delivers a highly performant and scalable infrastructure that can handle lifecycle management with a single mouse click.
  • VMware's software-defined networking (SDN) architecture, NSX, provides customers with an agile and secure solution that automates the provisioning of networks and services such as load balancing, NAT, routing and perimeter-firewalling without touching the physical infrastructure.
  • Pivotal's cloud-native platform, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, provides a modern app-centric environment enabling developers to deliver applications at the speed and frequency necessary to support their CI/CD business without needing to worry about the underlying infrastructure.

The Pivotal Ready Architecture has been designed with simplicity in mind. Its tested reference architecture reduces the complexity of the installation of the different components and simplifies the processes of the ongoing maintenance of each tier. It provides customers with resilient solution that easily scales as an organization's needs change into the future and beyond.
