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.
