    [EN] Microsoft joins Java-oriented Cloud Foundry

    Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
    June 14, 2017

    At the Cloud Foundry Summit in Santa Clara, Calif., Microsoft announced the company has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation as a Gold Member. What's Microsoft doing joining an open-source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud provider, which largely uses Java and Node.js to build applications instead of .NET Core? Easy. Corey Sanders, Microsoft's director of Azure Compute, told me: "That's where the customers are."

    In Sanders' keynote, he said Microsoft has been working with Cloud Foundry since 2015. "It's a natural progression for us and our customers love running on Cloud Foundry on Azure."

    Over the past few years, Microsoft has increased its engagement with open-source projects and communities. Microsoft has even joined the Linux Foundation. Microsoft -- yes, Microsoft -- is a leading open-source GitHub contributor and has open sourced .NET Core.

    Indeed, one in three virtual machines (VM) powered by Azure run on Linux. More than that, over 60 percent Azure Marketplace images are Linux-based. Joining up with Cloud Foundry may sound odd, but if you consider Microsoft's recent embrace of Linux, it's no surprise at all.

    For example, major Microsoft enterprise customers such as Manulife, John Hancock insurance parent company, and Ford are already ready running Cloud Foundry applications on Azure.

    Why now? Sanders said, "Microsoft and the Cloud Foundry community are deeply aligned around our mutual understanding of enterprise business and technical requirements, and our commitment to help organizations modernize their applications without vendor lock-in."

    Yes, you read that right. A Microsoft executive just said he was against "vendor lock-in." As I told him during our interview, "You wouldn't be working at Microsoft a few years ago." He replied, "I wouldn't have been there."

    Moving ahead, Microsoft is not just supporting Cloud Foundry on Azure. Microsoft will work on developing Cloud Foundry as it continues its move into becoming a leading open-source enterprise PaaS.

    In the short run, Sanders explained, "We are extending Cloud Foundry integration with Azure. This includes back-end integration with Azure Database (PostgreSQL and MySQL) and cloud broker support for SQL Database, Service Bus, and Cosmos DB." Microsoft is also including the Cloud Foundry command line interface in the Azure Cloud Shell for easy Cloud Foundry management.

    In addition, the following features are being added:

    • Azure Cloud Provider Interface - The Azure CPI provides integration between BOSH, an open-source release engineering tool and the Azure infrastructure, including the VMs, virtual networks, and other infrastructural elements required to run Cloud Foundry. The CPI is continually updated to take advantage of the latest Azure features, including supporting Azure Stack.

    • Azure Meta Service Broker - The Azure meta service broker provides Cloud Foundry developers with an easy way to provision and bind their applications to some of our most popular services, including Azure SQL, Azure Service Bus, and Azure Cosmos DB.

    • Visual Studio Team Services Plugin - The open-source Cloud Foundry plugin for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) provides rich support for building continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for CF, including the ability to deploy to a CF environment from a VSTS hosted build agent, allowing teams to avoid managing build servers.

    • Microsoft Operations Management Suite Log Analytics - Integration with Log Analytics in OMS allows you to collect system and application metrics and logs for monitoring your CF Application.

    A decade ago no one could have seen this coming. But that was yesterday. Today, Microsoft is working hand-in-glove with other companies and open-source software.

    Docker and Azure for developing hybrid applications

    Your organization is asking you to deliver an app that depends on existing code and data yet quickly scales up or down based on customer demand. What to do? This talk will highlight two use cases of Docker and Microsoft working together to help users build and deploy hybrid apps that span on-premises and Azure.

    The first use case will demo how to build a new Java Linux app on your laptop and deploy it unchanged to Azure using Docker Cloud and Docker Community Edition for Azure Container Service. The second will show how to containerize an existing application without modifying the source code and deploy the containerized app to Azure using Docker Enterprise Edition.

    You’ll learn about best practices for hybrid apps, the impact of these apps on the business, and relevant tools available from Docker and Microsoft.

    Ford, Microsoft and Dell EMC-backed start-up Pivotal could IPO by mid-2018

    Pivotal counts over a third of Fortune 100 companies as clients

    Enterprise software company Pivotal Software, which was spun out of EMC and its subsidiary, VMware, a few years ago, is looking at an initial public offering by the middle of next year, according to sources familiar with the matter. They did not give details on the size of the estimated float.

    The San Francisco-based company is an offshoot of software development consulting firm Pivotal Labs, which was previously acquired by EMC. Pivotal Software started with cloud technology from VMware, big data capabilities provided by EMC and a $105 million investment from General Electric.

    It is also backed by major names like Ford, which led a funding round along with Microsoft and others that valued Pivotal at $2.8 billion.

    When asked about the IPO, Pivotal CEO, Rob Mee, told CNBC, "We'll definitely do it when the market conditions and the business conditions are just right."

    Last year, VMware, EMC and Pivotal became subsidiaries of Dell Technologies.

    Pivotal helps companies build, test, deploy and update software applications that can run either on public cloud such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure or on private cloud.

    Mee said there is an emphasis on doing knowledge transfer at the firm that allows developers to continuously learn and that Pivotal does not hold anything back as competitive advantage.

    "Everything that we do is open-source ... in that mode of openness, now that we provide cloud technology as well, which we have built over the last four years, (the cloud business) has become a big growth engine for us," said Mee.

    Last year, the cloud business saw a 130 percent on-year increase, with its flagship software — Pivotal Cloud Foundry — selling over $270 million in annual bookings.

    Mee said he expects the business to grow again in 2017 because there is a realization among well-heeled legacy companies that they need to develop agile, cloud-based software to remain on par with their industry disruptors.

    For years, established companies have been on the defensive as they tackled threats from venture-backed start-ups, many of which created new markets for e-commerce, ride sharing, social networks and others, and reaped the commercial benefits.

    Industry experts say that cloud computing has become a crucial part of the business for most companies. Earlier this year, Gartner said the global public cloud services market is expected to grow 18 percent in 2017 to $246.8 billion, up from $209.2 billion in 2016, but may taper off over the next few years. Cloud application services are predicted to grow 20.1 percent to $46.3 billion this year.

    "The future for cloud is bright ... adoption will increase within the majority of organizations," Michael Warrilow, research vice president at Gartner, told CNBC. "There is definitely a place for smaller companies to use big public cloud providers for their advantage."

    Businesses are now thinking in terms of what Mee called a "DevOps" (Development Ops) mindset, where there's greater collaboration between software developers and information technology professionals to create cloud-focused solutions that can be modified quickly to change business needs.

    "Companies want a multi-cloud strategy," he said.

    Pivotal counts over a third of the Fortune 100 companies as clients, including six of the top automakers, seven of the largest banks and five major insurers in the world.

    Indeed, the firm addresses a pain point that consultants at PwC previously called the "Goldilocks syndrome", where changing regulations, productivity pressures and complex customer engagement models left businesses unsure how much to customize their software. Too much leaves a system expensive to maintain, while generic versions force firms to cram their business model into the software's function.

    "Software development is optimized for continuous change is essentially what it is," said Mee. "Prior to that, software development had tried to limit change because it was seen as risky. It turns out that in order to move safely, you have to move much more quickly."

    Pivotal has also expanded its presence Asia, and picked up key customers including Singapore's largest lender DBS Bank and Australian telco giant Telstra.

    Though legacy companies in the region have yet to face the same kind of disruption their counterparts in the U.S. have experienced, Lionel Lim, managing director for Asia Pacific and Japan at Pivotal, told CNBC that Pivotal's strategy in Asia is to go after the large customers first. "Because they will be the ones that'll be hit first," he said.

    Mee added, "The timing is really good for us to step up investment in Asia in a big way."
