#gopivotal just launched their Pivotal One platform ...thoughts from the Crowd? is it vapor or real?
Very interesting... I was just reading about it here... "Pivotal One Launches, Now Every Enterprise Can Develop Like An Internet Giant http://shar.es/8swkV " Enterprise PaaS
Tim Crawford The question isn't can they? The question s/b: should they. For some, it is needed. Most others, not so much.
Brian Fanzo Agree @Tcrawford... But is it also a question of enterprise customers still aren't sure exactly what and how to solve their big data problems. Is PaaS the right answer.. I guess we will see
Tim Crawford Spot on! Most enterprises are still struggling w/ #cloud. PaaS bring further q's to the table.
Customers who have it working, love it.
John Furrier which customers and what do they like about it
Matt Wolpin Other than it just being released, what is stopping other customers/prospects?
John Furrier I attended EMC analyst event last month people need to remember Pivotal is very young still..my issue is 1600 employees and lots to build - it will either flame out huge or be a monster success
Warner Music Group, Baidu, Swisscom to name a few
It seems like they really are focusing on helping "real-time" rearchitecture help for companies to manage big data... Would love to see more details on the exact problems they are solving..
Agreed it is young, but with a lot of clout and seniority across suite of products.
Agree w/ @CloudOfCaroline - heard a bit of reality checking in Q2 7 Q3 w/ many but people understand need. Throwing tons of resources/IP (people/tech) at it.
Pivotal is now also hosting on Verizon - of course expected alternatives to AWS - choice is appealing
John Furrier I do agree that getting good motivated partners is very good move Cloud Foundry by itself will not make it
as long as they pull off real integration between 4 product categories - PaaS, Data (Hadoop, scale-out DBs) and Analytics - it can kick ass of quite a few vendors!
John Furrier that what they need to line up on a string and pul it.. it's very hard to do.. I don't think they have the personell to do it.. developing mkt use cases while technology changing fast = dangerous
Brian Fanzo Integration is the key across the product categories but that is going to require some heavy re-architecture as well for customers.. right?
Tim Crawford Success and failure of #cloud solutions will ultimately rest w/ the value of their ecosystem.
Brian Fanzo Teaching Change is no easy task & #Cloud solutions require change in all aspects of IT & in all layers of the IT stack.. Ecosystem plus Ability to embrace change are key..
Agree with @stu. Choice is appealing. The community enhancements to Cloud Foundry where it is tested by Pivotal is extremely appealing. True sharing.
@furrier absolutely real, I wrote about it today too http://t.co/mrC3pA8vOW - have lots of customers I’m working with already
the customer and contributor roster at @platformcf was impressive and geniune. With Pivotal One we also deliver on the Hadoop and Analytics story.
John Furrier Spring story is solid but what about other projects ..are you leading the contribution or just using them..Redis, etc
John Furrier not doubt the force of pivotal will be huge like i said it will be huge success or massive implosion..i just don't see it any other way
