A Pivotal CF Field Success Story: Installation, User-Provided Services, and Live Capacity Updates

by October 16, 2013

I’ve had the privilege of visiting a few of Pivotal’s early access customers to help them install our Pivotal CF™ PaaS solution, which is powered by Cloud Foundry technology. I’d like to share a recent success story and highlight three benefits from Pivotal CF that were very well received.
This customer, like many we are working with, is in the process of planning a next generation application and data analytics platform focused on PaaS as a strategic centerpiece. We were engaged for a three-day proof of concept (POC) engagement, the focus of which was three-fold:

Install Pivotal CF in a newly created VMware vSphere environment.
Push an application which both ingested and consumed data to/from existing Hadoop and Solr environments.
