Through a partnership unveiled this week at Cloud Foundry Summit, Pivotal is bringing Apigee API management capabilities to its Cloud Foundry offering.
Pivotal raised $653 million in recent Series C funding round, according to a Form D filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Cloud Foundry has a fan in Virtustream, the cloud company acquired by EMC last year. The company plans to launch a Pivotal Cloud Foundry-based PaaS later this year.
Hortonworks announced several significant updates, a joint solution with Syncsort, and an expanded deal with Pivotal. The newly released Extended Services Release includes Apache Ranger security, Apache Atlas for data governance, Cloudbreak for expanded cloud support and resources, and updates on Apache Ambari for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry has expanded its presence again. Announced at Build 2016 last week, the Pivotal flavor of the open source PaaS is now available on the Azure Marketplace for quick and simple deployment on Microsoft's public cloud.
Dell said on Tuesday that the waiting period under the antitrust law had ended, indicating that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission had cleared the acquisition.
Pivotal added another name to its roster this week.
The Slice of Lime team is now part of Pivotal, and it seems to me the new Pivotal employees will fit well into the Cloud Foundry-focused developer engagement teams.
Barely a week goes by in which a press release or media alert related to Cloud Foundry fails to arrive in my inbox. Whether it's a new Cloud Foundry-based platform as a service launching, a new certification or new integrations and features, it appears that the PaaS software is getting plenty of attention.
Call it industry consolidation. Call it accelerating time to market. Whatever the case, 2015 was a year of several major acquisitions in the DevOps space, including a few surprising ones.
